Someone in or near Gumtree NC to check out a car?

Can someone in the Gumtree NC area check a car for me? Please email or PM.

Brian, we're gonna need a dedicated forum for these requests if I don't find a car soon

Thanks,
Sixto

I'll be in Highpoint this Saturday. That's not too far from there. What kind of car are you looking at? I'm pretty good at inspections if there's no rush. I usually notice EVERYTHING!

Got it, should be no problem to check it out this Saturday. It'll be easy since it's about 99% the same as my '98. That dealer is only 12 miles from where I'll be on the West side of Highpoint. A nice country drive!
