I've got a first-born I'll trade you for it. Straight-up. He's only got 8K miles and I think he's still under warranty. Plays little league, does cub scouts. But no sunroof, sorry. Fuel: runs up to 4 hours on a bowl of cheerios. Body: No major dings. Good teeth. Engine: Phewww, should probably have emissions checked or run on low sulfer fuel as gaseous output can be excessive. Performance: Chases little sister around house 47 times before quitting -- see "eveready bunny". All maintenance records available. I might even be convinced to throw in the wife for free. In fact, take her *and* her car. That'll give me more room in the garage for my bimmer stuff. Let me know if we can work something out.
Its an easy decision. If there's nothing major/obvious wrong, BUY IT!!!. This is the old "found it in a barn" story..., but please be fair. Don't whack the old guy on price if its the "real deal". You'll feel guilty. Well..., then again..., maybe not.
