Comments about the car: My parents bought this car new in PA in 1996. It was intended to be a daily driver but they ended up liking it too much and just stored it in the garage. Most of the miles (~12,000) were put on in the first couple years. It was never driven in the snow. I was the one who largely took care of the car in terms of cleaning and detailing. It got a full paint correction in 2007 and there are still minimal swirls to this day.

I took possession of the car from my parents earlier this year. My parents finally wanted the extra space but I didn't think I wanted to see it sell yet. Turns out, getting engaged and the costs involved with that interfere with having an extra car around...

Yes, the tires are a bit old. I had plans to replace them very soon after I got the car, but now I'm selling it. Figured I'd preserve the originality for the next owner and he/she can decide what to do. There is no visible tire damage or dry rot. While the tires were always in the back of my mind, I did put about 100 miles on it the last month and a good chunk of it was highway.

Don't mind the old PA registration/inspection stickers on the windshield, the new NY ones are sitting in the center console. Goes to show how much it's driven...

Please, feel free to reply or PM me with any questions.

Asking price: $16,000
