97 SSE
White with blue leather int. ( is blue leather a common thing??)
Bose stereo, cd player(broke??)
112k

all the badgeing is white and blends in pretty dang well with the car....you can hardly see the pontiac emblem on the front...

They want $5900 for it

price seems a little high to me since it is an eight year old car with 112k miles, and the cd player is broke

I told them that it probably just needs cleaned...some family owned it for 3 yrs before trade in.....but they have a list of what i want fixed before I buy.....cd player,antenna goes down all the way but like 2in...radio kinda fades in and out...(i think becuz of the antenna) from end needs an alignment I think...kinda shakes a little....other than that its a very solid car....havent seen any rust on it anywhere.......only thing that threw me off was the blue leather interior....its a very WEIRD shade of blue...

That'* what I was thinking. Even with a working CD player the price seems high. They probably only have $2,000 into it since it most likely came from the auction.

Work them over. Hard.
