Old habits die hard... Did a local search even though I am no longer looking. Black/Black 5 speed. A little pricey but looks like it has been loved.

The interior looks to be in good condition for the miles.

This car was at my shop 2 weeks ago for a going over. It is a 4 thousand dollar car at best and is plagued by many electrical issues. It also has a pretty serious condition as far as drivability goes and I offered to repair it for a certain amount . The fellow opted to Try and fix it himself and left. I never told him what it was and he was taliking about replacing the computer/s...which is not the issue. He traded an old beat up jeep for it to a local here in town. Bragged about only having a grand in it total..

Looks good to me. Why the secrecy on what you think is wrong with it? This just benefits you so I guess your interested in buying it or making some money off it somehow?

No , not at all. I do buy and sell alot of cars and those who know me know that but this one is not one I am interested in. I just thought it would be good info for any potential buyer to know what to expect. Someone also removed the rubstrips and left the holes I forgot to mention. I mean it is a decent car but no where near that price. Also I don't mention what is wrong with it here, but if someone were to PM me I would certainly say what it is.

Well this is what happens when you evaluate a car in low resolution photographs with low resolution eyes and a no resolution brain. Wish I had a hundred bucks for the cars that I have seen that photographed nicely and were dogs when I finally saw them in person.

A lot of wisdom in that statement!
