Sold! (To a rare youth)

^ I'm sure it doesn't hurt!

The car sold on the weekend to a vanishingly rare youth who specifically wanted a car with a manual transmission.

Coulda knocked me over with a feather.

(Then again, his mom told me she only buys manuals. Nurture vs. nature!)

He arrived with his folks in his dad's giant GM pickup.

He took the Mirage for a test drive and declared he loved it, and was particularly impressed with the 4.7 L/100 km = 50 MPG US on the display when we got back.

He joked with his dad that the last time he filled his truck, it was around 20 L/ 100 km = 12 MPG.
