Re: [midatlanticretro] Need a car for VCF
- Taking space in my driveway is a Mercury Sable GS sedan from 1994 that is
in (according to Kelly) fair condition and worth $1150. The man who owns
it wants to sell it badly. Cosmetically, the paint job is going but,
mechanically, the only problem is an oil drip.
Note I said drip. That's part of the reason I want this off my driveway.
