See description in my garage.
I bought this 03 Terminator from a nice guy in the Service. He really hated to part with the car, but was happy to see it would be going to a good home. (Which is what I'm hoping for as well)
This Termie was to replace the 99 SVT Cobra that had been "rear ended" and totalled from the impact a month earlier. (Some stupid woman driver talking on her cell phone... another story, another time...) This Termie was so well cared for when I received it that I absolutely hated driving it... The car was so much fun though, that driving her daily won out. Anyway, I have to put her up for sale now to help offset my car payments on my new Shelby... I hope she goes to a good home!
