TIDBITS
* Original owner never drove car in winter, driving about 42K miles in 23 years
* Car did not come with a radio...original owner had AM-radio installed, opting to have the antenna put on the fender instead of replacing the windshield (course, in the last 10 years or so, she wished she had ordered an AM-FM radio!)
* Original owner "had" to sell the car because it would not fit in her new townhouse garage
* Cannot see them, but the mudflaps have the script "Monte Carlo" in white
