NOOOO!! I call dibs!

Anyway, I still haven't heard back from the seller. The ad went up yesterday and already has ~80 views. For that price, I suspect it's already sold.

That's the problem with relying on email alerts -- always late to the party!


I agree it's too nice to subject to the salt baths that are eastern Canada winters. But it also doesn't make sense for me to pick it up as a "spare" car just to have on hand. So if I got it, it would have to earn its keep on winter duty. But it would also get full rust-prevention treatment every year. I know these cars well enough that I could keep the body & floor in good condition for a long, long time even with salt exposure.
