“I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

Pros: $600, manual with working overdrive, straight body, working power locks, running really well, shifts well, no clunking or squeaking or or rattles. Swedish import, supposedly. The space on the front bumper for a euro plate seems to back that up.

Cons: Non-turbo. He thinks it’s a turbo, but it’s not. Unknown kms, but over 400k. Totally blown shocks. Clearcoat has run away, random surface rust, the usual bubbling at the spare tire wells under the rear quarters, leaky exhaust (just needs clamps tightened...supposedly), sometimes noisy blower motor, and the dealbreaker.....it’s been smoked in.

So I bailed, mostly because of the smoke smell. And my bank account breathed a sigh of relief for not getting a 4th car.
