This is easy. I can't swing a dead cat without hitting a baur. I spotted this on the way home today parked at the back of a local used car dealer. Spoke to the owner, didnt get his name. He claims to have had it for the last 7-8 yrs. He would sell for $5,500. Extremely straight body, faded paint and no signs of rust in typical areas. very clean underneath. Seat Upholstery redone poorly. Interior extremely good. You can see the website on the license plate frame. The phone# is on the website if you need to contact him.

Woo hoo!! Congrats, Kevin!
