I thought this car was overpriced at first, but now that I see the console and wheels I can see the value!

Without the stereo and wheels & tires, that would maybe be a $10,000 car and that is probably generous. Does it really have $25,000 worth of tires, wheels and stereo? I don't think so. Maybe the market is different in Chicago. Maybe I have no idea what I am talking about but that is about an $18,000 car max and that has to be to the right buyer.

I'll say this, while def not a $35K car its not the worst I've ever seen. Paint looks glossy and it looks pretty straight in the pics. FI & AC are nice upgrades.

My pet peeve is huge wheels with four wheel drums peeking out from behind.

Sorry, but for me it’s hard to get excited over a 4 door . But that’s just me.

A four door no way, take all the extra junk off of it and you have a 5-6000 dollar car maybe.
