Not interested in something that old. Jenna Jameson had a viper: http://classifieds.viperclub.org/showproduct.php?product=2548

Funny how people market vehicles. We know that she wants something else with A/C for her parents, but don't know anything including mileage and condition, on the car she's selling.

Shocking it hasn't sold!

OK my 65 Rolls was owned by David Janssen ( Dr Richard Kimball) of the Fugitive fame. Heck I got a picture of him leaning on it. Seems like that should help me to sell it, but as of yet , no bites. Not sure famed previous ownership helps - lol

I thought it was her way of saying the A/C doesn't work in the MB.

Have you ever repaired the A/C on one of these? The climate control servo alone in a nightmare. There are also lots of switch-over valves to deal with.

Hopefully it will not have California emissions as some cars sold in the Western Reigon did back then.

I almost bought the house next to her's back in 95. Too much money, too little house. Didn't really want to move to NJ anyway.
