CAVEAT EMPTOR Koenig 308 in NJ

Have been looking into a 1984 black 308 Koenig GTS offered by Costas in NJ.
The car has it seems had a rather serious wreck. The owner (Alex Costas) either was blissfully unaware of this or... more likely... just didn't choose to tell us before we dropped $500 on a PPI. How the car managed to maintain a clean Carfax thru all this remains a mystery. Carlos at Classic Coachwork did the PPI and felt the repair work had NOT been properly carried out. The car pulls dangerously rightward on driving. Carlos used the word 'unsafe' whilst discussing this with me.
Its a shame... would have loved to have a Koenig. The search continues

Car Fax is in my opinion a sham. It provides the unknowing with a false sense of security.


40 years in the car business and I have yet to see or hear of any place I have worked be queried by them.
