Default A free GP :) WOOHOO!

While I was making my report delivery rounds I stopped and talked to the security guard. His GP died, won't restart, and he said I could HAVE it if I wanted it. He doesn't want to sink any more money into it. Its a blue 95 with 110k miles on her.

I'll get to check the oil tomorrow and if its not chocolate milk .... SCORE!!!

To be honest I did tell him of the UIM/LIM failures the engine is prone to and that it would be about $200 to fix if he did it himself, he still wanted no part of it. I feel odd, sad that his car died and happy I might be pickinig up a steal.

awesome deal. I just drove through Syracuse. I'd stop by sunday to take a gander at the new deal, but I have to go back via elmira to stop and check on the grandparents


Let me know when you are going to work on it, maybe I'll stop out and help.
