This may be off-topic because it was never advertised:




That's because I'm trading it for this set of wheels:



The asking price is $1500, I had the wheels advertised for $2000; it's supposed to get 40mpg. We have a handshake deal that he won't sell it out from under me. I've known him for decades — He bought my 61 Panel van.

Once the transaction is perfected, it gets 'Pacific Wonderland' plates.

'97 Metro, 23k miles



"Make an offer"

Considering (1) autotragic, and (2) "rust holes", I'm sure it'd go for well under $1500.

Kilometers 37,200
Transmission Automatic

New battery and breaks installed this year. The car itself runs great. Extremely fuel effective. Failed safety as there are three rust spots on the the underbelly of the car but the rest of the car is in great shape considering it's 20 years old. Automatic transmission, no A/C or power steering, radio and cassette player. Never been in an accident. My mom barely drove it and that's why it's only got 37,000 kilometers on it. Great to keep for parts if you already own one.

Aha - now I get the connection to your "first water cooled car in years" comment in the other thread.

Congrats on the deal.

I have literally never seen that type of VW before.

Thanks. It's parked out front right now. With Pacific Wonderland plates.

Even though the whole car shakes idling at a stoplight, my neighbor says it's quieter starting up than the Superbeetle.

The PO added a five-speed and Bilstein shocks and springs. And the wheels.

Here is a manual 1997 Civic with 188,000 miles. Unfortunately, it has some aftermarket parts: https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/6188966915.html

I am asking the seller which model, but it is probably rated around 27/34.

Here is an Accord like mine, while I got 37 MPG on my last tank, that was all highway, and this is rated 20/27 or 20/28. Mine is a beautiful car, though: https://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/cto/6189252115.html

The thought occurred to me to get this for its engine -- supposedly it would bolt right up to the transmission in the MPGiata. But a parts car shouldn't cost the same as the car it's supplying parts to!
