I have owned this beauty since 2002 and driven it daily. I hope to find a buyer who will care for the car as much as I have. The rust that is currently emerging on the car has been slowly emerging over the last 5 years and is now getting to the point that it needs attention. I am selling the car now because I've replaced it with a newer model.
