For Sale: Vintage Hot Rod With Custom Paint

An article by posted on August 28, 2009

For Sale: This vintage 1962 classic has a great paint job, but like any other used vehicle it needs a little work. You’ll want to get a new transmission (Johan Santana), V6 engine (Carlos Beltran), power steering (Carlos Delgado), a starter (John Maine), new brakes (J.J. Putz), shock absorbers (Jon Niese and Fernando Nieve), coil springs (Alex Cora, Ramon Martinez) and a catalytic converter (Jose Reyes). We installed a new Bose Stereo CD Player (Oliver Perez) six months ago, but we can’t get it to work. You will probably need a new head gasket (Omar Minaya) down the road too. Will throw in a new air freshener (Fernando Martinez). Make offer. For more information, I can be reached at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Ask for Coup-ons. Please, no collect calls.
