|Purchased this vehicle off of EBAY, flew out to Pennsylvania and drove the car back home to Illinois. 1st owner did maintenance via the dealer through 99,000 miles. Second owner didn't no much at all to the car other than change the oil for the duration of their ownership, (about 17,500 miles).
Upon arrival in Pennsylvania, it was immediately clear that the 2nd owner, (who claimed he was a mechanic), had lied about every single direct emailed question that I had about the car, but I was really thrilled with the car and decided to rescue it from his negligence. I have since been on a mission to restore the vehicle. Thanks to my online forum friends, it has been a relatively painless process. It is a thrill to drive and an even bigger thrill when you are able to fix an issue which results in restoring it to normal operating condition. The performance of the car continues to surprise me as I replace worn items with new stock, oem parts.
