As long as it's clean and mechanically sound that's all that matters

thats really cheap imo. Im looking for another XJ and for clean ones around Ohio Im looking at about $6000. They are way up since cash for clunkers and nobody can afford new cars nowadays. I looked at a couple over the weekend in the 3 to 4 range that were not very good.One for 2200 that was shot.

it was so fun. when we first slid in i though we were gonna put it on its side cause we slid down and then hit the side of the rut and i was in the passenger seat and could only open my door like 8 inches.
