I will pass your request on to our 14 year old son, as he has declared he has "dibs" on it already. We have kind of established a routine here that each kid gets one car from Mom and Dad that is the same age as they are, plus or minus 6 months or so, and this one fits the formula for him (as he has already determined). I am not sure if this car really qualifies as the other kids all got Mercedes-Benz cars, but each had at least 200,000 miles. He is anticipating assuming ownership in about 2 1/2 to 3 years, which means my wife and I have to drive the car a lot to make it "qualify" without slighting his older sister and brother.

The previous owner really had some difficulty finding a buyer, which kind of floored me. Jim
