Eh, she's nice, but I'd put that 12k toward a Yellow if it was my money. Something really special that will appreciate.

For what she is, it ain't bad. It's a non-original rare-ish car (because of the color + R) that looks good with those wheels. I could use more documentation. This guy's obviously a flipper, and drove it 700 miles. He probably picked it up for 5k.

If you're into a bit of speed and a lot of uniqueness for things like Cars and Coffee and don't have 100k for a really special new fast car, this will do.

I don't know. $12K for a car with repainted areas, some stains on carpet, not functioning rear latch solenoid and turbo line return leak seems at least $4K too much. I'm glad to see our cars being recognized and valued though.

No SC-901/dash speaker, stains in rears seats, cracked leather on console, a missing 12 Volt plug and crappy condition parking brake boot. If I were spending $12K on it, I'd expect all those things to be in it, mint or remedied.

Refurbished with a tailgate that doesn’t work and an oil leak?

WaY over priced but I need more of these Buyers!

Two people are happier today, at least

If they want to spend that much, we should sell mine =)
