You know your car's seen better days when its best feature is that "the seats adjust smoothly".
"Well sir, it's true 2nd gear doesn't work, but boy look at those seats move back and forth. Poetry in motion. Oh don't worry about the odometer not working - that'll increase the resale value. Do you want to buy the extra paint treatment with that sir?"
I was just complimenting Nikos F on his sense of humor!! Also, I recommended that people purchasing a car from Ebay, should make the effort to physically inspect the car. I think it's important in the interest of avoiding surprises.
