You just lined it up so nicely for me, I had no choice

It'll be nice to see the new (to you) ride, just kinda sux we are going to lose a 87-91, unless the new owner (your sis right?) joins

Not a bad price, but how much damage is there? How many miles? Glad to hear you got another Bonne!

HOLY SH**!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What price was he originally asking for?? I think you paid MORE than enough!! That will take a lot of time and $$ to get working right. I hope it goes well. I'd like to see some pics when you get a chance.

Are you going to replace all those things with the plastic pieces missing? How'* the engine look? Any body rust? (In Texas that probably isn't a huge problem, right) Okay I'm asking too many questions.

Good luck.
