  • Mechanic-owned car. I've had it for about 5 or 6 years now. Been garage kept and hardly driven for two years, as my daily before that. Parked it with intentions for V-8 swap, t cetera, ut moving to Tallahasse for school and can't take it with, o I need to sell it. It's in very good shape mechanically, ut needs some body work to get back to perfect shape. I can turn wrenches, ut I have little confidence when it comes to doing bodywork. Would be a great car for someone comfortable with body work
