The Civic is still on OfferUp, but the owner still has not responded to me offering the asking price. The 2001 autotragic Corolla with 250,000 miles is still on Craigslist for $1,600, but someone just posted a 2002 manual Corolla with "over 200,000 miles" for $600 (268,819 miles).

Here is the 2001 with bad hubcaps and value-increasing patina:

Here is the 2002 with original hubcaps [on this side]. Is it me or does the paint on this third of the car look good?!

The owner just says:
Its 18 years old and has 200k plus miles. It runs. Clutch is good. Ac is cold. Leaks oil.
For some reason I felt that I needed to clarify that it runs and drives. The owner says that it did, so at least she is responsive!
Value-increasing patina, clear headlights, and a small dent in the bumper:

The paint looks good, although that bumper has seen better days. How do you thnk it would look with a grill block and air dam?! One headlight is cloudier than the other:

A little dirty and I wonder what happened to the window control:

That looks annoying. That is also cheap. $68.49 shipped from eBay [Amazon has it for $60.40:

Pioneer CD player?

I asked how much it leaked and what else was wrong with it. The owner just responded:
It's just high mileage and older. Clutch is good. Ac is good. Might need brakes and tires soon.
I asked if it was safe to drive to Phoenix and back. She responded to my first two messages within ten minutes, but it has been over thirty since the third. I demand the truth Katie!

The interior and trunk look good:
