Oh and I didn't realize I didn't mention this... car was definitely in an accident. Guy who owned it before was somewhat accident prone, actually. That's how he lost his license in the first place, and that's why the car sat for the past 3 years or so. Oh well, car still looks good, goes down the road straight, seems to have been repaired pretty well. Carfax revealed one accident, but not the severity of it.
And another thing, the BFGoodrich Traction T/As on this thing SUCK ASS. They are in almost new shape (car had them on it when we got it). I realized I didn't like them the first time I drove the car in the snow and had absolutely no traction what so ever. I didn't like them but whatever, because of my job I'm somewhat of a tire snob. Now my dad who normally just puts the cheapest piles of shit tires he can find on his car (read: not too picky) hates them too, says they don't hold the road very well even in the dry.
