Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Selling the Mustang

Selling the Mustang

I have a 1967 original big-block fastback Mustang - 390FE, C6 auto, 3.25:1 open 9", originally equipped with power steering & A/C (that doesn't work), overhead console, but no floor console, floor shifter, power front disc / rear drum brakes. It's been repainted from the original Raven Black to a metallic blue so deep you have to see it in bright sunlight to realize it's not black.

I've owned it for more than ten years.

I've put less than 2,000 miles on it.

It's been parked in my garage for three years and does not currently run.

I also have a 428CJ bare block that's been magnafluxed and sonic checked, and a 428CJ crank that's been turned .020/.020 under, and a brand new in the box Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, and some other miscellaneous pieces and parts from a '68 GT.

I've decided it's time to choose one expensive hobby and stick with it, and shooting is the winner. It's time to sell the 'Stang.

When I bought it, it had an appraisal that said it was worth $11,900. I have no idea what it's worth now. I need to get it running, and cleaned up thoroughly. I'm afraid the paint is burned from having bird droppings on it for an extended period (yes, I know), and it's got a touch of body cancer in the passenger side door that was there when I bought it.

So, for anybody out there, is eBay Motors worth it? Have you bought/sold a car through that venue? Any clue what my asking price should be (once I get it running?) I'd take pictures, but it's filthy, and I can't easily get it out of the garage, where it's surrounded by a ton of crap.

Any advice is welcome.
