Description (revised)

This car is in great shape inside and out.

Has wear on the drivers seat back left side from getting in and out the rest of interior is great.

There is one very small ding above handle on driver door the rest of the exterior is great.

The car however does not run it is a timing problem with the cams ( If you know SHO's you know what I am talking about ).

The car had been perfect up to this point you can see in the picture it was registered in March of this year.

I have removed the valve covers to check if this was the problem and have all the parts in the car.

It has keyless entry with code on door or either of the 2 remotes ( they also open the trunk ).

This has a 6 CD changer, sunroof, leather, power everything and I just installed a new power antenna not long before it quit.

If you have an SHO or want one this is the car for you.

Only serious bidders please there will be people who want this car and they should have to mess with bidders who don't thank you.

I take Paypal but could be willing to accept other payment types E-mail before bidding please.

Shipping I will deliver for $1 per mile or you can make your own arrangements.

Thank you for looking and happy bidding.

    Guys, I got home an hour ago with this one. It is not a cam failure. Pryed and tapped on sprockets. They are solidly in place. Also, there is no shiney wear ring at the sprocket/shaft interface.
