Mom bought a ‘97 GC Orvis Edition as a new vehicle for the shop, it’s got the 5.2 and 130k. Aside from a poopy alternator it’s in good mechanical shape. Unfortunately it has some pretty serious cosmetic issues, up to and including:

A broken bumper,

Hilariously pitted ( but color-keyed!) wheels,


A headliner that sags more than grandma’s tits,

And a crevasse in the driver’s seat.

All in all, it was a pretty good deal, considering it was bought just to use as a spare car. It really only cost my mom $320, because the customer owed her $80 for a job we did on another one of her cars.
