the only thing this will be hauling is *****. Man this little car gets up and goes. This is a Gray Market vehicle that was purchased in germany new and shipped to the US later in life. Belonged to my best friend who's father bought it new in Germany. I am the third owner after my friend and his father. Only 78K miles on it. My wife is itching to drive it this weekend, I am stopping by the courthouse after work to transfer the title. Thaks again everyone!

Thank you it is truly a classic and I got it for next to nothing from a friend of 30 years for $1000.00. I stopped by the courthouse today on the way home from work adn transfered the title to my name for another $98.00. So far I have $1098.00 in it. It is indeed a Merry Christmas this year! Only 77K miles on it, barley broken in!
