History
Purchased from Craigslist for $700,m which was a mercy purchase to save the car from being completely ruined. Obviously the car was mistreated and was either missing or losing screws and bolts on just about every interior part in the car. Many items were broken or just not there. It almost looked like a vehicle that was stolen and found again while in the middle of dismantling in a chop shop. I have replaced the entire interior from the ugly blue to all black and added another $1200 or so into the rest of the car. At the time of purchase, what convinced me to take her into my possession was that she did not smoke, drip or leak fluids, had AC, and everything was working still. She spoke to me and asked to be saved.
