    Well, it's not too hard to swap a manual into, but then the "preservationists" would scream bloody murder!

    Not for 12.5 K
    It looks like original paint. SDR?My monitor color settings are wacky.
    What's up with the dirt around the flares.
    I WANTED an automatic car.
    As usual,the pix are poop.

    That seems to be a pretty good way to get into the low-mile game without breaking the bank.

    So long as the economy continues on it's trend of the last number of years, these should keep going up in value.

    This looks like a gorgeous car from the pictures.
    Admittedly, the pictures don't show a lot, but the picture of the engine compartment shows that it's not just clean, it's impeccable. The metal finishes on the brake booster, EGR valve, Cruise Control module, EFI resistor mount all look great, the fuse box decal is there. The Igniter heat sink usually collects dirt and it is clean. Even the lower frame rail looks clean.

    The hatch glass trim lower corners look like they are showing silver, and the passenger side rain gutter clip the same.

    This car really looks like it was owned by a really picky person.

    From the pics you can't see what the dash looks like. I assume that Arizona sun could beat it up pretty bad.

    If the hatch and rocker panels are rust free (and hey Scottsdale, how much rain do they get?) this truly looks like a great deal for the price.

    12.5K is a lot of money, but if this is original paint, interior is good, and the trim is all as good as it appears, it's certainly cheaper and less work to start with this rather than trying to resto one.
