    I don't know what the hell it means either. That's why I left it out - it adds nothing to the ad. LOL

        Clearly, but is it a regionalism, or maybe just one screwball?

                  That is the Craigslist we know and love..

                  So amazingly nuts, yet you know we've all thought about it.

                    well, about 12 years ago, i used to live in this island community south east of houston. it was kind of like being in key west, but on a much smaller scale.

                    one day, i was walking through the local Habitat Restore and came across a heavy duty electric wheel chair that didn't work and a pretty darn nice brown leather recliner. i paid about 150 bucks for both and set to work making a mobile reclining chair. i used to get liquored up and drive it around the neighborhood. top speed was probably about 8 mph. unfortunately, we had hurricane Ike pass through in 2008. my beloved wheelchair went under about 3 feet of salt water and that was the end of it.

                                - differential could use a rebuild (or replace w/ stock 3.73)

                                I'm a vintage car mechanic and have owned and worked on numerous E30s. This is one of the most solid cars I've gone through, regardless of mileage. I have thoroughly inspected this car and corrected many of the typical E30 issues, as well as performing a full service. Once you have looked at other E30s in this price range, you will especially appreciate this car's originality. This is a healthy E30 that is ready for daily driver duty right away!
