Since I am a disabled Marine Corp veteran and I'm getting up in age I felt that possibly someone else might have as much fun cruising the streets of this great nation.I may kick myself for selling it now, but I am getting up in age and getting into other interests.
The car is absolutely beautiful and it has given me no trouble at all, of course I have taken very good care of it, in fact, I have to say I have babied the car since I purchased it over 12 years ago.
The car was just refurbished when I bought it, in fact, I flew out to New York City and took a look at it, fell in love with it and drove it back to Minnesota, crossing the following states, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and arrived back in northern Minnesota five days later.
The car absolutely ran perfect and I was surprised it had so much pep, and it got 24 miles per gallon, on the freeway. When passing through the many toll booths in New York state, there were many attendants that said they loved the car and wanted to quit their jobs and come with me. I think they were kidding but one of the gals I think was serious.
All during my trip back to Minnesota and traveling on the interstates all I got was thumbs up, even when I saw a Trooper pull behind me and check the car out and drove past me giving the thumbs-up sign. I thought I was going to be arrested because I was traveling 80 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour Zone. The car is equipped with a 327 horsepower engine, plenty of power to pass those slowpokes and get on with the trip.
I am going to miss all the questions, especially when I would pull into a gas station. Many people would approach me asking all kinds of questions, mostly what year it is and what make as well. One look at the back seats and most folks say, man there is so much room that you could have a party back there. All I wanted to do was get back home because I was worried about parking at a hotel at night and someone getting too close with their buckle and scratching the beautiful paint job. Luckily for me that did not happen. I did not use any oil at all and if ever there was a car to be called "roadworthy" this was the one.
I can tell you with much certainty that this vehicle never saw rain nor never saw snow. I was very careful and would only take it out on nice Shiny Days and of course it was parked all winter, covered in my garage. I only used it on nice days and cruise nights here in Hibbing.
It is a beautiful car with so many wonderful options. The car runs, drives and can be driven anywhere, but sadly it is time to part. I will be very cautious to sell it to someone that will really appreciate it and take care of the car like I did.
