How in the world does he think that car will bring 5K when you ca buy a unburned car for that much? Guess people in that area have more money than brains.

See what happens when you put C5 parts on a C4, it will try to self distruct.

"That will buff right out"

From the photos, it looks like someone forgot to change the fpr and fuel rail seals. Oh well.

A little wax and paint, it'll be good as new.

I've got news for that guy - there's no bringing that one back to life. I doubt if you could salvage $500 in parts. owner most likely didn't have insurance, and he's desperate to recoup some of his bad decision investment (to turn a C4 into a C5). he should take it to a scrap yard - might get 5-cents per pound.

That is a rare, or should I say "well done", prototype 1990 c5 test car. I'm on my way to the bank to get the money. I hope one of you guys doesn't try to buy this out form under me before I can get there. It will go great with the 1990 vert I am getting too.

That poor C4 was so humiliated having a C5 kit on AND ridiculous rims, that it must have decided it was better to end it.

There is just no accounting for some people's taste...

This one actually doesn't look too bad after looking at the burnt one...

Boy, that just burns me up. Maybe a little rubbing compound and some glaze, will take that right out.
