I'll give you $2500 for it and you won't have to worry about doing anything else to it or it breaking down on you down the road.

take the dead hookers out of the back and check it closely for hidden compartments full of drugs!


I take it you did a lein check etc? I'm always cautious when a deal is too good to be true and this sounds too cheap

Does it have an idle air control valve? My mustang was doing that and that's what it was

Make sure the fluids aren't empty. Especially the gas.
