My "New" 1980 Spirit AMX
« on: February 25, 2012, 12:49:32 PM »
Just got this delivered this week. I haven't had time to play with it yet. Bought it off Craigslist out of Ohio. It has 6700 miles. Yes they are suppose to be original miles. Being an 1980 is is a 6 cylinder car, but it does have a 4 speed so it should be a fun driver. Can't wait for good weather!

WOW! That's insane. Good find. Ridiculously low mileage...how could you own that car for that long and not put more than 6700 miles on it? How much did you pay if you don't mind us(me) asking?

I've seen that movie maybe twice. The quote just seemed appropriate for a change.

the sad part is i've seen all three movies a dozen or so times each that and the fact that i can actually talk like smeagol doesn't help.
