I inspected and drove it today. It'* bright white, 4door, clean as a whistle and not a blemish or dent anywhere. Mileage was 159414 and VIN # 1G2HX5312P1218466. I'm quite sure that it has been garaged since 1993. Interior was perfect a shade of blue, gear shift was on the dash board.

Owner is my good 87 yr old widow friend xxxxxxxx, who owns her home at 218 Plane Ave, Woodland, CA 95695 and phone is 530-xxxxxxxx. She has a lady friend living with her, otherwise is home alone most of the time. She has lived in that house since 1960. She has owned the car about 4 years and bought it from her neighbor across the street, new in '93. They mostly drove it to Sacramento for therapy of their disabled son.

I had never driven your cars so didn't know what to expect, but the only thing different about it was the sort of stiff suspension, like a sports car. Is that the way it is supposed to be? I drove it around town and on the freeway and it was easy to handle and performed well. No squeaks, rattles, ec. I've never had a "fully loaded" car, but she say it all works well. She doesn't have computer or cell phone so please let me and her know what you decide.
DAD
Now who can tell me about this car (I'm testing you). Seems like an odd duck for a couple wierd reasons.

You got me. No computer or cell? Are they selling it or is it a scam?

It is a 93, and an SE, but it must have a ton of options on it.

It'* an SE.

And supposedly stripped. Should have a bench seat to go with that column shifter.

Now look at the 8th digit of the Vin.

VIN has an invalid check digit. With the stiff suspension, column shift, I wonder about police package.

8th digit being a 1 indictates supercharged.

Hmm, 93 SESC...with the FE2 or F41...
And isn't the blue interior kind of rare, too?
Any chance of RPOs?
