Completely understand, but I wouldn't say it really "needs" work. I just tried to be as honest as possible. Whenever I have it on a job site, I get lots of rich guy/nice car comments (oddly from guys driving 60k super duties, kinda odd for a 9 year old car).
Good luck finding what you are looking for as well. I looked for a while before I found this car, but I just think the "responsible" thing to do at this point for me is to convert it into money.
