11 unfortunately. I need a bigger hauler! I'm skeptical since the whole lot is advertised for $500. I'm pretty sure no one would sell for that cheap.

I'll wager that it's $500 and up. He's looking to score in his "investment." LOL

Probably. Doesn't make any difference if he won't return emails.

Look at that Corsa Turbo engine compartment. Looks like the rear lid was opened about 28 years ago and has been open ever since.

It is rough. May not be anything salvageable.

In the ad is says "Cash and Carry!" which makes me think that it is $500 per Car. I know I can only Carry one at a time.

I would think you would need to pay someone at least $500 to take all that rusted and baked scrap iron off the property. And if you going to kick some tires better be wearing some steel toes and have a snake bite kit with you - just sayin.

Never understood why some think that cars left outside and subjected to the weather and elements for years and years are worth anything but scrap. Always a gold mine - LOL

Sadly, I'd bet the majority get scrapped when the land needs to be sold.
Can you imagine the time, cost and effort to haul them off?
With scrap prices being so low they may have to pay to get them removed.

I would say they are not same cars. The one in craigslist the Corvairs and other cars are all over the place. The other post they appear to be lined up with not a lot of trees and a fence can been seen on the side with a building.
