I keep all service history records (including receipts) since the day I bought it. Interior is clean and stainless (no smoking, no food, etc).
Few major services have been completed recently (see service history) which shall keep you from making significant expenses for quite awhile.

Car title is clean and ready to be assigned to a new owner.
The car originally had a protective film installed on the hood, headlamps, and front bumper. Over the years this film deteriorated, so I had to professionally remove it. I re-painted the bumper to fix road chips and scratches - it looks new now.
The car has been in a minor road accident few years ago, when it was hit in the rear at traffic light by Lexus ES sedan. It has been rigorously restored by one of the best body shops in the area: Performance Auto Collision (http://www.bodyshopatl.com/collision-repair-atlanta/). There is NO indication of any damage or repair been done to the car.
I am the third owner and bought it when it was two years old with 24400 odometer reading. As far as I know, it has been in service since November 2004. I am the only driver, and I drive it only occasionally (~6000 per year) to keep fun for a weekend. It has never been raced or tracked.
I accept cash or certified check as payment options. I don't have an urge to sell this car quickly, so please, don't make ridiculous offers. My wish for her is to get into good hands of an automobile enthusiast who could take good care of her, appreciate her beauty, and fully enjoy what she can provide.
The car is sold "as is" without any warranty. All sales are final. I have tried to be as honest and straightforward as possible. If you have any question or concerns, please, ask. You are welcome to examine it with a mechanic and take it for a test drive._a__a2_
