As you can see these pictures were taken in 2008. The car has only been driven about 400 miles in that time. It has a new Alpine stereo. Located in San Antonio, Texas

Looks great Doc! Wish I had the funds...
That is the exact color in a TB I am looking for.
I just found Richard Lasseters' fair market evaluation of my car back in 2008 when it had 400 less miles than it has now. His opinion was $26,800 to $27,650. Maybe I should raise my asking price?
