Would prefer to see it go to someone who will love it as much as I do - if interested in talking about acquiring, please email JFawcett@madisonbenefits.net

Ditto. A good attorney is as valuable as a good mechanic.

Somewhere in that statement there's a good joke, just not sure what it is.

Both - she prefers a car that, as she puts it, doesn't make her sit on the floor. And there is nowhere to put it.

Does anyone have interest in the car?

It's is really good shape - VIN tags match.
There are some places in the paint - but paint is shiny and glossy.
Everything works.

sorry - been out of town at sister's wedding....

back to important stuff.

contact me at JFawcett@madisonbenefits.net

Houston Galleria area.....

How much....that is a difficult thing. Low NADA is $9,200 and High is $21,000. Don't think mine fits on either end, so how about something in between or best offer.....make an offer!

I would rather take a loss on the car than have it mistreated......

Like I said before, I LOVE IT, but wife hates it.

Thought about pricing last night....how about $12,000?
I have it listed at $14,000....but know people here would take care of it and enjoy it as much as I have.
Also, includes electric hard-top hoist - about $1,000 new. Stores hard-tops up in the air in the garage....great invention.
18 months old black soft top. Doesn't leak - even in Texas rain!
Chrome wheels/fenders/door edges/door sills
Black interior - seats recently re-done (replaced 4 panels and had leather re-dyed).
Interior is in great shape. Wood is clear and shiney.
New JVC CD and HD radio with Ipod interface
Timing chain serviced
Transmission pump resealed
Front suspension resealed
Cold AC
New front brakes
