I seem to remember it's been "spruced up" under the hood, with some items changed out. I get it, but that sorta kills part of the appeal of a 3,600 mile car.

Did a search before I posted as totally assumed not new to this forum but came up empty. Have a link to the previous discussion?

Although amazing that basically unused cars survive normally the end result is an art piece that will never see pavement again without major work to replace dried up seals etc.

Always the odd owner that uncovers their prize one a year and puts 50-100 miles on it then have it fully serviced only to cover it up again and repeat the process year after year. But most are a sad story of someone buying a new car then dying only to have the car sit.

So what is the story on this one?
