Again, great information guys! I see why this car has been for sale in the collection for two years. I am really drawn to the Crosley so I’m going to continue my search.
I fear I would be paying too much for what I see as being a cream puff, but you don’t know what you don’t know.
There are a lot of “fun” cars on my radar and I have the green light from my wife so that’s the best starting point!
everything said is right on. unless this car has an emotional draw
for being just like the one grandpa went outhouse tipping in when he
wasn't courting grandma, run, don't walk. spend a few more days
thinking about what YOU want. if a perfect, high point car is what
you decide, then this one needs completely redone, another 12K at
least. then you are way upside down money wise. if you want a fun
driver, look for a sweet one at half or less that price, it might
already have the first flaw in the paint and you won't have to turn
purple when it happens one day. when I rode motorcycles I always
told people to buy a decent used one first, find out if they were a
rider. one can always fix, upgrade or buy new, opportunities abound.
by then they had a better idea what it was all about and what they
wanted. if they found out they weren't a rider they could sell and
come close to breaking even. salesmen can see stars in your eyes,
that is their job. Paul

Great stuff and points to take to heart.
From my conversation today with the seller they are not
wanting to come down further than the $12,000 asking price. I
would feel more comfortable closer to $10K but that’s just the
salesman in me.
The dealer has some really amazing cars in
their collection over there. I’m drawn to this for sure. It
needs the ignition replaced which he has, he’s going to put it
in and I’m going back to drive it.
That will be the test. I will be schooled
on exactly how SLOW SLOW can be.
