Clear Corners = $50
Clear Side Markers = $50
Cdn Tire Chromed hubcaps = $40
Thats a big start right there! *thmbsdwn*

Maybe he means the original new purchase price? Whacked the car a couple times and spent 15, 20 gs fixing it?

probably meant $5,000 and autotrader typo'd 50,000

and $5,000 was to safety the car because it at one point was beaten to shit.

Its funny when people selling a car always say they 'invested' xxx amount of dollars in a car. Last time I checked, youre actually doing the opposite as you rarely see any money return on a car that depreciates by the year.
