Yes and especially if it is guards red.

It looks like a nice high mileage driver that is maintained well with a fairly recent rebuild and a couple accidents. Ask around $30k and expect an offer in the upper $20s.

I’d pass but I’m really stuck on manuals. Even with my DD. No manual? I’m not interested. I’ll be happy to buy 5, 10, 15 year old DD cars that are nice, well maintained and have a stick shift.
