Burgandy Boat has a carfax account for buying his Mark VIII so he might still have it. Otherwise i can maybe see what friends have.

6 Records could be milage checks, inspections, registrations etc. That'* an average count.

yea, thanks guys, i would REALLY appreciate if one of you guys could pay for that cuz every single penny i have is goin into this car. It would really be a big mistake not to look at that and then realize that there is a problem... then i would be out $1500-$2500 and would have trouble selling it to somebody else

Dont quote me on this but the best way to really tell if you have an SSE SC or and SSEi is to look at the RPO codes listed on the top of your spare tire cover. If it says WA6 then its an SSEi. If its Y85 then its an SSE.

and that would be me, nice car btw, thanks for asking, it'* pretty quick too, i like it. oh 92 SSEi, yup, carfax says it'* an SSEi (don't know how accurate it is though), anyway, it'* a 1 owner car from New Jersey, it'* got a clean title with no reported accidents or anything like that. if ya want it, go for it, just check it for rust and stuff like that
