the mileage is very much up there. I'd be very careful and inspect it reeeeeeally carefully.



(looking at it in the local autotrader right now, heh... 905 area, eh? Maybe Jim W can ch-check it out even )

1997-99 were good years, 95 had serious oil leak issues. Have a look at it, problem is, they are so cool, you've be shocked when you sit in it

Good luck, the brainwashing is going well

The bonnie is an all iron pushrod old school v6, built like a tank.

The 4.0 is all aluminum, DOHC, and runs harder, at the expense of heat/longevity.
