Current location: Kennesaw, Georgia
Full Timing belt service recently completed at 125,600 miles. current mileage is roughly 129,139 miles, but will go up as i drive it once or twice a week.
Bought this car from the original owner at the end of March when all this virus stuff started happening. I travel for work, so i'm never home and haven't owned a car in years. Figured i'd buy something fun to drive that i could tinker with instead of dealing with a rental car indefinitely. Starting to get hints that i'll be going back on the road sooner than expected, so figured i'd get the for sale posting up sooner rather than later to get the ball rolling.
Enthusiast owned from original purchase. Original owner took excellent care of it, with all scheduled maintenance done accordingly. Never smoked in. Never had kids or pets in it. t's a southern car, living it's entire life in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

I just recently drove it from Atlanta, GA to Keene, NH and it was smooth the entire way. motor pulls strong, and clutch has excellent feel to it. On-board computer said it averaged 33mpg for the entire 1100+ mile trip. Same on the way back.
Car is in great shape and has been well taken care of. That said, it is an 8 year old car. So there are a few rock chips on the front. a small scratch on the top of the trunk lid, a light scuff/scratch on the outside pillar between the passenger doors, and a light scratch on the lower front bumper corner on the passenger side. Also one or two very small marks on the wheels, not really curb rash, but marks. Also, the laminate around the very outside edge of the windshield is peeling a little bit underneath, and there are two very tiny rock chips at the very bottom center of the windshield that i hope to have repaired soon.
No check engine lights, no drips, no leaks, no funny engine noises.
I'll take some better pictures next time i wash her. But if you have any questions, or would like a picture of something in particular, just let me know.
Asking $8,000 or best reasonable offer. If you're seriously interested, PM me and maybe we can work out a deal. I'd prefer to see this thing get driven rather than sit in storage most of the year.
