Thanks you for getting back to me, can you assure me that I will not be disappointed if I buy this car as a Birthday gift for my Dad? as in couple of months, the contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. but i\'m able to access my mail. I\'m ready to pay your asking price but no in cash in person because I\'m an Oceanographer and I am presently on a contract which will end. if you dont have a paypal its prety easy to open one just log on to www.paypal.com and sign up. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? as my Dad\'s birthday is fast approaching. I am sure he will love the care he\'s a mechanic and a handy man so if there is anything that need to be fixed in it just let me know he will handle it.
