FOR A BUNCH MORE PIX
I am Really interested in trades but as for my price,
I am asking 7k, although I am somewhat flexible… Please no crazy lowballs, I cannot stress that enough, she is a VERY nice rabbit...
I am open to trade offers! and more than willing to drive as far as i need too for the right car
I would like something that is obd2, something that has boost is good and AC is always a plus,
if you think it is a good trade send me a pm, the absolute worst i can say is no…

I don't think you have owned it, so no herpes yet lol I am just joking.
no I bought it a while back way more than 2 months ago lol and for a lot more than 4k, and I have since done quite a lot of work as well as clean up on the car to get it where it sits.
Obviously any real interest in the car will be taken as such and i would be more than happy to provide any info about how when and the reasoning behind purchasing the car as well as selling
I really would love to keep it I really do, but it's just going to have a very hard time fitting into some new life changes, and I would rather pass it on and find something I am content with and can drive without trying to turn into a dream car of mine..
and just for anyones reference I am the third owner, fourth if you consider the original giving it to his son as I have been told...
Anyways please don't post to be mean for no reason, this is a ft fs thread and although opinions are welcome, I don't really think you should try and take away from someones thread because of either misguided information, or whatever reason it may be.
If you have any questions about the car I have nothing to hide, I would gladly give up any and all information, just send me a pm if you are interested.
