The car went for REAL cheap to an independent dealer who was asked to
puchase it by someone in L.A..  A lister???  The dealer thinks he had a
blown engine in his car, but neglected to get his name, although he had
authorized him up to a dollar amount.

He thinks the water in the car made it up to the cigarette lighter, but not
into the instruments.  I'm interested in some pieces IF the buyer only wants
the motor and other parts.  I'll let the list know if any of it becomes

We kinda blew it, I think.  The pics of the car had an 11/01/02 date on
them, so it's been sitting there a good while.  We're all too freakin' busy.
