    thats one hell of a "parking lot dent" on both front doors.

    and wtf is up with stripping the woodgrain around bumper stickers on the tailgate, then later removing the stickers and leaving the remaining wood?

    It will be gone pretty quick for the price and driven deeper in the ground.
    What is this &npsb that is repeated over and over in the listing ???

      is html code for non-breaking space (I've also seen it referred to as narrow blank space). Which tells me they may have the car listed elsewhere first, copied text from their original listing but the formatting didn't copy well to the Ebay ad.

    Definitely more than 50k miles. And, since it is a '90, the actual mileage may not end with 50k thanks to those stupid odometer gears that turn to wax.

    I saw a nearly identical wagon in the economy lot at the Vegas airport back in late May. But it turns out the wheels and wood grain fade are different. Makes me wonder how many Boxes are still left in the area.

    I believe that the woodgrain is just totally faded, not stripped.

    "Welcome to my 1990 Mercury Mystique station wagon."

    The current bid is much higher than I'd have comfortably offered. Jesus, guess some people have more money than they know what to do with.

    I thought seller may have used a translator and this nbsp stuff came about from it.

    Depending on the translator, that may be where they copied the text for the ad from. They definitely copied it from another system.

    The current bid isn't crazy, but I don't see this car going for more than $3k-$3.5k if any more bids even come in. We'll see, I'm certainly not an expert, just my

    yeah its a formatting thing. I want to say its from copying the raw HTML to text.
