Hey Ray, been awhile *laughs* My brother had a sweet Silvia in gold with lots of carbon, but he moved on.

My wife is good considering the wreck and impact, tore me up when I saw the pillar into the seat and daylight through seams in the trunk.

She just gave me a bigger ballpark to play in moneywise, up to $6500. Low mileage is a biggie as is an auto since she can't drive a stick and the car will end up being her mother's as well later on.

The person who hit her, blew a stop sign talking on her headset at over 30 mph. We have witnesses who saw the whole thing and heard my wife laying on her horn, she said the focus's torque helped her when she realised she was getting hit and moved just enough not to be nailed in her door.
