I am a manufacturer's rep in the stereo biz.  Nak is all but out of business in the US market and used car stereos have to be one of the most impossible things to sell in the business.  I really feel this advertisement must be a misprint!  There's just no way that car with its mileage even with that sound system is worth that kind of money.  I might belive $3399.99 may be even as much as 4999.99 but thats it.  At least in this area a '91 5 speed V8 with even that particular used car stereo just will not command that kind of price!
Just my .02.
