So I have a few interested folks in the lude... so I'm starting the search for some neons again.

It's HARD to find a non molested 1GN that isn't in TERRIBLE shape.

Only one I have my eye on now is the clean 4 door red 1 on page one. I e-mailed them but got no response.... I doubt I can afford it as I'm selling the lude for around 2k and that's all I'd be able to offer them

I know there are a few members that live in that area. Off the bat I can recall GreeNeons03. Might drop him a PM, if you get to that point. Also try posting in the regional board.

I can't believe he wouldn't take that. I find it very hard to believe that he'll get much more than that, let alone $3K.

Well, if it's as clean as it looks, it's worth the $2700 to me.

I called them back and they are going to give me a ring back and do a walk around it with me on the phone and give me details.

I still wish I knew someone near there to check it out for me. If not, I might just fly there blind and take a look at it...

Sale is pending (more info on the car)... might fly over, have them pick me up at the airport and then take a looksie at the car.

I posted on the "other org" seeing if theres any members in that area... pretty sure theres a few.

Not sure if you've already booked your flight for this one, but theres one identical to the white sedan at the local Chrysler dealer with 106k. It looks just as good, if not better than the one posted above. I figured if you're considering flying out and driving one back I'd give you a heads up on it.

I'm not sure what they're asking for it, but if you're interested I can stop by there on lunch tomorrow and find out.

15 hours, but super clean 1gns are getting hard to find since the newest one is 11 years old at this point, lol. I'll check up on it tomorrow and let you know.
