I have a very decent SD1 near Philly that I need to dispose of. It has 
engine problems that I don't have the time or energy to correct. 
Excellent interior and goof 5-speed trans. If there is anyone reading 
this who is within driving distance who has an interest, please contact 
me at glenwilson at ixpres.com or at 610-872-2109. This is something you 
need to see and evaluate. Please don't respond at this time if you are 
at a great distance and can't come see the car. It may end up being 
crushed before long since I currently have a severe storage problem. If 
you're close enough to visit, I'll fill you in on the details.
