I got one because it was inexpensive, I got the more >expensive Classic 900 turbo with the SPG package for myself :-) My daughter purchased the car because it was a decent car that she could afford (18 years old). I took her to a used car lot where a friend of mine works. I had worked at a full line dealership where he was in sales. They were asking 6995 USD for it. We brought it home and I went over it pretty closely. There were a number of minor things wrong with it. Before took it back, we talked it over and she told him she could only afford 3300 USD. The usual head scratching and "let me see what I can do" routine and the offer was accepted. I had done some research of the cars and thought it was worth the money and was a fairly safe car for her. I could not afford to buy it.........then again, my wife and I looked at a '95 Jag Vanden Plas last week.......
