Good deal, too many people living in the past on this forum thinking these old cars are worth sticker price 7 years after they were originally sold.

OP, great color choice, I saw one in person the other day...and they look fantastic.

However, I'd never give up my 6-speed manual.

In other news, a man with a polished turd decides to convert it into a regular turd instead of a gold nugget.

I heard Texas cars have two reverse gears, one for going up the hillbilly and another for backing out of their sister's garage.

Smg is fine. People, stop being scared. Yeah the pump is expensive but a rare failure.
It's a good gearbox. Sounds like a great find.
