Default My 98

There are 2 2000+ SSEis in Idaho right now for sale, one is pictured below, the other is a 2003 for $17,000 and it has high miles. Both were in Bonneville county.


Here it is.

I drove to look at a 2000 SSEi...pictured here, I offered $5500 but they would not take it and the car had been in a bed wreck at some point since the roof was crinkled. It need a windshield, steering shaft, windows, etc.










Ok, so it was in rough shape for 125,000 or whatever it was. Then I went to Idaho Falls and was eating some lunch and across the street I noticed it was the "wessss sideee" car lot that WILL FINANCE ANYONE, buy here pay here kinda thing, They had the 98 I was looking at last summer and it was still on the lot. I said look "I'll pay what you paid for it, nothing more" so he said cool and pulled the paperwork, I ended up driving it away for $1000 less than what I paid for my 93 and that was last year.






Some garage pics I was supposed to post last night.










Oh yeah....working CCR!!!!





mint interior.






rims are in surprisingly good shape.






No rock chips.




Needs a lot of work. Valve Cover gaskets first..





Pics I just took.

















This car is not a long term investment, its a cheap form of transportation that almost falls into the "beater" category. I'm sure if I fix the little nagging problems it will be nice again. So far I've put about 500 miles on it no problem since yesterday.


I like the car. Its getting 30.2 MPG.

Nice catch.

Makes me feel stupid since I paid $6000CDN for my '96 with 145,000km'*, but for some reason that is what the SSEi'* go for around here. Mine isn't in as good shape as that either...

I must have missed something. What happened to the 00+?
