I'm the second owner. Bought it in 2001 with 43,000 miles on it for $10,500. It's been a pretty good car, it's been through hell and back.
The engine ceased around 90,000 when a valve snapped and tore up a cylinder and piston. Put a new one in with 40,0000 miles on it.
It's back on the road and banging corners!
