In addition to the "garage" sale, hoping to sell the car before we move.

It is a 1990 with all available options for year. 5 speed transmission. Cruise, AC (needs recharged), power steering, power windows, etc. Top is in fair shape with zipper window, factory aluminum rims in fair shape with decent tires. Aftermarket CD player.

It does need the plastic trim that fits between the tail lights as it is busted. Can be found under $100 used. Just bolt on part. As any car that is 22 years old, it has some minor dings.

$2,000 firm.

Forgot to mention that I also have a hardtop to offer to buyer. If it sell with the car, it will $1,000 firm as they easily sell for this much. Makes total purchase price $3,000. It is a matching red factory top, but a later version, as it has factory defrost and a headliner.

Sweet ride. I assume miles are very high? (You didn't indicate...)

what kind of gas mileage does it get?

About 30 Marco, although at this elevation it might be less. My wife had a 99 that we had for a pretty long time. It was a sweet little car...lots of fun, tossable, driftable, great mileage. We sold it in anticipation of kids, and I wished we never had, but I really didn't fit in it. I had to "duck" to see under the windshield visor. I thought about channeling the seat foam to actually be able to sit low enough to see out well. Anyway, my neighbor was a mechanic and had one of these 90's with about 240k on the ticker. Needed some work (and spring shocks badly) but it still ran amazingly well. It lacked all the creatures on the later models, but who cares for a runabout.

The odometer has reportedly been replaced. Currently reads 75,000 but apparently had somewhere around 75k at the change, so somewhere in mid 100k. Everything on the car would reflect that.

These get 30mpg in town, even when driven with a pretty heavy foot. We have had several, and that is typical. Even on the highway expect low 30mpg. They are geared a bit low, so the mpg suffers more at higher speeds, only getting about 30mpg. IF you could cruise at 55-60 then you might see mid 30's.

One of the best thing about the 1.6l cars (90-93) is they have less padding in the seats. They are still comfy but allow me to sit about 1" lower and 1" further back. That is important as I am 6' tall. Also, the 1.6 car the passenger seat goes all the way back. On 94 and newer (1.8L cars) the cpu is behind the passenger seat, which loses an inch or more of leg room. The 90-93 cars were also the lightest, so for me, a good option.
