    Heh! I got it for a G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚ Β First good score in a while!!!!! The kid used it as his daily driver for college and then left it at his dads house when he moved to Denver. It’s been hanging out in the trees for a year or so and a couple mice moved in so I need to air it out and clean up a bit, maybe the carpet needs to go!! I need to get the title signed over and get it registered but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna end up with a Β running driving titled Baja!!! CHEAP!!!! Β πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Like a panther always ready to pounce on the right deal.

    You crack me up.

    67 decklid, rear apron, and those sexy fenders are probably worth what you paid.

    The Dad, whose kid I bought the Baja from tried to drop off the title today but I was outta town:( Sounds like the title was never transferred to his sons name and is still on his wife’s name so the title is good to go I just need to pick it up!!!! I’m starting to wonder How this could go so smoothly!!! I think I bought a mouse poop Baja running driving and titled Β for a grand! YEH!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
