Anyone near Pensacola, FL

I found a dealership that had a 30th for sale in Pensacola, FL. Being is so close to the coast I'm a little concerned about rust. Can anyone speak to the condition of cars down there? Or is there someone willing to look at the car for me? Thanks.

I have been eyeballing that car too for awhile, it looks perfect in the pics. It's 9 hour drive from me and have no free time to look at it. You won't find any rust on Florida cars even if it's parked next to the ocean.

I'm fairly close but it's still an hour away. We don't have the rust issues down here like the northern cars.

Let me call him he just reposted it on Craig list the other day for $3,500.00. I was going to drive up Saturday but I had to do something else. This car has been for sale atleast 3 months. I thought it was sold awhile back but surprised me the other day when he posted it on Craigslist

I'd love to get her, but what in the world is going on???
I found the Craigslist ad, is that the owner? I was dealing with the used car lot, feel like I got the run around from them. Maybe they did the same thing to the owner.

Post pics up already!

I like looking at nice examples of these cars. Ebay has been a little slow lately for MN12's. Unless you want a Pro-Street, tubbed car in grey primer!

What's surprising is that it was removed so fast. Autotrader usually keeps cars on their site at least a year after they are sold.

I'm not looking, BTW, just like to see nice examples.

The one in Pensacola, right? He txt'd me back yesterday stating it was sold.
Maybe he dosen't want to deal with out of state.
