Its most of the way there. All you would need to do is complete the belly pan, add rear wheel and muffler boattails, front and rear wheel spoilers, inner side skirts, front wheel well skirts, and a nosepiece with integrated driver adjustable radiator inlet, and you'll have a close match for my car. Just imagine, 90+ mpg cruising at 65mph on the interstate and people everywhere taking pictures of your car. It could be yours for a grand.

I soo wish I had the room in the garage for this. Alas, I have no room for another car, I don't even have room for a car with a boattail, lol.

Someone in MN near me buy this so I can help them work on it and live vicariously through them.

Darn! I wish I lived closer! Only $1000. I wonder if you wait for the gas prices to go up again (which they are), if you couldn't get more. Especially if you advertised the gas mileage!

Come to think of it, I wonder if it would even fit in my garage with the boattail.

We can't "really" afford it, but I even got my wife's blessing! BUT - Columbia, MO is over 2,000 miles from western Washington. Too much... just... too... much...

Weren't you in northern California last year? My wife would have been OK to drive down there... oh - so close.

But just for the sake of information: anything that is wrong with it? (My wife made me ask... ) What items would need replacing in the next 10,000 miles for example? Tire tread depth? Brakes? Clutch? How often was the oil changed? Previous owners?

The next owner will be a lucky person... good luck finding a new home for your ride.

Mine is just a tad over 15 feet long, about the length of a mid-sized SUV. If you can fit a Ford Explorer in your garage, a boattailed Civic hatchback will fit.
