I bought this car a few years ago as a daily driver and lately have been driving my other car and I also have a truck that I'm getting ready to put some money into. I really don't need 3 vehicles so this one is going up for sale. It's 27 years old and has 185k miles so it does have a few issues but it is a fairly nice car. The engine is strong, though it is a small engine for this big/heavy of a car. It does smoke a little sometimes. The paint is fairly good. The A/C was working but the condensor leaks and needs to be resoldered or you can get a new one for $139. I've replaced the headlights with Bosch Euros. The leather interior is okay, not great but I've seen a lot worse. The tires are good and are Pirelli's. I just replaced the water pump, spark plugs, wires, fuel injectors, fuel pump, fuel distributor and filters. That cost me $1700 and honestly if I knew how much I was going to spend, I might have parted the car out but you definitely won't have to worry about those. I'm basically just trying to get some of my money back out of the car. I bought the car for more than I'm asking and that's not including the work I had done. Recently, the car has been tough to start. I had been driving it on weekends to keep fresh fuel moving in it until now. I'm not sure what needs to be done but after everything done to the fuel system it's not likely to take much to get it right. I had been asking $1900 hoping to get at least $1500 but I'm ready to move on and make room for something else so feel free to make me an offer. I do have service records going back to the mid 90's.
