This one is for sale next door from me. It's pretty impressive but does have 17k on it.

fowl weather taste like chicken. Not sure about the return on investment. If you put 40K in the stock market back in 1993 you should be ahead of $150K by now. But you wouldn't have had the chance to play with a NAS110. I wonder if his cooler lines are updated?

He's tried selling it a few times. He used to come off a bit arrogant in his ads, but appears to have changed his wording a bit. He used to say things like I don't need to sell, and will only sell to the right person - call me and we will chat - but was still asking $150,000. For reference, the NAS110 with under 10,000 miles sold for $100k last year.

Still has the original tires on it - that's pretty cool. Hard to believe they sold these things with those pieces of rubbish.

It will sell near that price once the right buyer comes along. Location is hurting it big time.

Original tires... not sure if that's even remotely cool lol. Most places won't work on tires that are over 10 years old because of the liability.

Good luck to him, thats a tough sale, even to a collector that price is pretty intimidating

I picked up on that one as well. As Josh mentioned, the tone and prose will not win him any awards.


I usually feel as though internet grammar police are so ten years ago, but in this case when the seller is fortunate enough to have such an important vehicle in your possession and are trying to sell it for an optimistic amount of money, I think maybe a few minutes to take the time to write a proper advertisement description is not asking too much.


Look, without being douchy or presumptuous, he's looking for a wealthy (and probably educated buyer). Know your indented audience.


His ad is fine if he were selling a farm implement or livestock, but a $150,000 used car?


I'd love to know how this came into his possession and where it's been hiding.

If the seller is the actual original owner, we're likely looking at someone who is 70-75 years old.

It would be interesting to see this truck purchased and used and to track the costs to maintain it over the next 100k miles after it has been forced into submission for so many years. I'm afraid to let my trucks sit because it seems when I do the unusual shit starts to act up.
