Hi everyone,
My generous dad, who wasn't driving his car much, let me have it after I simply asked for it. Pretty great. I got it with about 33K miles on it, but the engine had been completely replaced at some point, so the it only had about 13K miles on it. I had it brought to my place in Virginia from his place in southern cal, and I drive on roads that this car was meant for: windy, up/down, fun with standard transmission. I'm a lucky girl. I found a great local service guy who takes care of it, and knows every part and how to deal with anything, so I'm good to go for a while. The tires are slick on wet pavement, and the top sticks sometimes. That's about it. I had a new radio put in and saved the original if anyone needs one.
