i just bought a 1955 T-Bird from a guy near Chicago. i live in southwest Iowa About 450 miles away, so did not go look at it. The car was on Chicago craigslist. It had kind of poor pictures, and not many of them. But I liked the car, and it did look good on the outside . It had rust in the left rear lower quarter panel, no big deal for me. i asked the guy (he said he is 78 years old) if there was any more rust. Nope, that is the only rust on the car. So I did not ask nor did he offer any pictures of the under side of the car. Of course when the car got to me, I could readily see the rust of the floors, trunk, floor supports. i did not complain to the guy, maybe he did not ever look UNDER the car! Just kinda makes me feel like there is no comrada among car guys anymore. Or am I just a sucker?? LOL I am glad I got the t-bird, will keep me busy ( and broke) the next 2 or 3 years.
