No reserve? Yikes! What did you get as a replacement and why get rid of this one?

Advice.
The lighting in most of your pictures is terrible, retake all of them somewhere you can tell how good the paint is... it looks all faded. Use some shiny protectant on the top and the tires to get them to stand out. You might also put something on the flat-black painted wheels to get them to shine a little more too.
The one shot you posted head-on, the car is in one half of the picture... the other half is of the apartments across the street.
Delete one of the engine pics (of which all 3 are practically identical) and show a pic with the top down.
Show another interior shot (with top down) and be sure to get the seats in it.

I hope you get the price you're looking for.

If you can edit the listing as well, you should put something in there to raise the value of the car, something along these lines.

"Car is worth well over $5000, but no reserve means you can own it for less, if you win it you can enjoy it for the summer and sell it and and get your money back easily, or you can keep it and have yourself a great deal."

Good advice from both Sam and Dan.

Good luck with the sale.

I wouldn't touch that car with a ten foot stick. Reason being you have "LOL" in your for sale ad more than 0 times. Why are you laughing out loud while selling your car? Maybe because urgay.

Oh ya and because it's a 1.6 and they suck.
