    I'm not interested in buying it (well, technically I am... but I could never
    afford a project car or second car for the next 5 years or so) but how come
    the hood, front bumper and the rear quarter panel seem to be under repair?
    Was it in an accident, or did it rust (looks like something was patched on
    the lower part of the rear quarter).

    I find it odd that the rest of the car is immaculate, but certain areas seem
    to need all that work.

    Love the 780's tho... might have to buy one in 5-10 years, when I can afford
    to play with cars.

    BTW what is all that white tubing/wiring in the engine bay??

    Looks like it was pretty obviously in an accident, front bumper cover is
    damaged, bumper is bent, and all the front end bodywork is missing,
    unfortunate really, those parts will be very hard to find, but the car will
    be very nice when done. Too bad it has the V6 and not the turbo though. Is
    the 780's hood unique too?

    Rule of thumb with the 780 - if it's clean (sheetmetal, interior) it's
    different than the 740/760. If it's dirty (engine, transmission,
    suspension) it's the same. Just some dashboard parts are common.
