I am in Kingston for the weekend. I have sent the seller an e-mail to see if we can go see the car tomorrow. If we do, I'll post the pictures.

Did anyone else notice that the siren seems to be raised up on some type of home made framework? I wonder what's with that? In the first pic, there seems to be a large crease in the rear housing of the siren as well.

He could be away for the long week-end.

Hopefully you will be there for a couple more days and get a chance to check it out.

It kind of looks like it mght have red lights in the bumper bullets. The passenger bullet is also pointed upward a bit just like my passenger side siren on my GMC. Must have something to do with the gravitational pull of the earth...

a little roll on one side of the bumper. easy fix with a log chain and a telephone pool. looks like they ran the pegs up and nut-ed the siren to the top of about 6 in of ready bolt. but me I 'm looking at the Economy - Memphis logo on that glass. not it's not the same as my Pontiac

Looks like a "Presidential solution" type deal to me.

That statement will require a little thinking to fully "get it", and NO, I will not explain it here.
