Better hurry. That's what they were going for in 1994 when I let one slip by, and it wasn't as good as this one. Can't find a BBB listing for Havelock Motors in Lincoln, NE, and their product mix isn't what I'd expect for that location either. Moreover, it's passing strange that their inventory lists 'mileages' in kilometers......So maybe you'd better not hurry just yet.

Luna, you should ask if you can make an appointment to view the car in person and see what their reaction is.

In fact, if the whole thing works out and you DO buy me that car, I'll give you the dog for nothing. Just one option of many of course ...
I would get the better deal with the dog. Pretty sure its an elaborate scam.

Here are some views of the address in question. There is no way the photos of the cars in that garage match this run down old building.
