    I used to know what that meant. I forget its something stupid too. What concerns me is I thought T-Top cars had CC1 on that tag.

          Its just some bullshit code for plant use. I don't think it means shit. All the RPO codes are 3 digits.

              That looks to be a nice car, except for the red console, the dash carpet and the speakers in the doors.

                Looking only at those pictures what would y'all estimate the price at? And what would you offer?

                  That depends on his asking price. I looked at a 79 the other day I figured with the way it looked and new motor maybe 4000 at the most but I talked to the guy and he wanted 9500. I laughed. And its still for sale 2 months later

                    Depending on mechanical work that's been done just looking at the pics I would think around 3000 and that's assuming it runs and needs the normal stuff like brakes, shocksc tune up etc.

                        I just picked up a car with that same color interior. I'd offer him $2k, if it runs.

                          the car has 96,000 original miles
                          the interior needs work thats for sure.

                              That's what I'm saying the same car here is almost twice what DB has been paying.
