    Oh, the bitter irony!

    For all you old-timers who recall my fruitless search for a 6 that lasted longer than some marriages, look at what my youngest son just bought. I found it online, 3 miles from my freakin' house no less, so off we go to see it. As the garage door opened, I know how the guy who found Tut's tomb felt. The owner was a fanatic, and sadly died 3 years ago. His sister kept it put away, but started and drove it occasionally. She's moving, and the car had to go. It's not perfect, but it's damn close, and came with a new exhaust system from the headers back. It's totally original except the wheels, and everything except the instrument panel lights work, even the SLS! She also has 5 BBS RS metrics on TRX's that appeared to have never been on the ground, but wanted $500 additional. We passed, but told her if she hasn't moved them by moving day to call us. As we were driving it, he said "We need to keep this car forever." Brought a tear to me eye it did!

    At least I can have six by association. Or virtual six!

    Unfortunately not, but it is a giggle to have one in the family! He plans on it being an ongoing project for the two of us. Brings a tear to me eye!

    88, cirrusblau, grey interior, 109K miles, Rondell 58's (I'm pushing for Style 5's), almost perfect interior, straight mostly ding and scratch-free body, no lights in the instrument panel, passenger window gets off track a bit sometimes, and the driver's headrest doesn't go up or down, but motor is still operational, but everything appears to work as it should, even the SLS. There's seep of oil from the oil pan, and he will probably replace the front end pieces just because. It was a real find, and had I not gone to Autotrader that day on a whim, we'd have missed it.

    Exactly the same car as mine (comfort seats horror in my case).

    Assuming yours has a slush-box, while mine is a 5-speed.
