    Well whoever the owner was they did BPD’s Taurus letters placement so giving that fact I’m assuming they beat the living crap out of it till the car didn’t like it anymore.

    Yikes! Opening line claims that it "runs great!" but as the OP says, the meat and potatoes of the ad goes on to say white smoke upon warm up and that they don't know why it does that, despite the oil "looking fine".

    In addition to the unknown issues with the motor, there appears to be some paint damage to passenger mid section, and the front bumper cover was removed at some point as it looks like upon re-install, that it was done incorrectly. Look closely at the gap between bumper and the quarter. Also, they don't even show the driver's side. Like. At. All. That alone lends some suspicions to the equation also. Yikes x2.

    Me personally, I'd steer clear.

    Enough other specimens out there with either less problems, or no problems to choose from. Even if that means paying slightly more.
