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.

Good luck,

EM
