He was excited for a project though, and it turned out to be one! It was well kept in its first home and then sold to a guy that used it as a construction/work vehicle, I believe to haul guys to and from work sites. It was really dirty on the inside with a large paint spill in the back seat. It took hours and hours (and hours) of scrubbing, vacuuming and detailing to make it nice again. Luckily leather cleans pretty well.
He fixed the suspension and got it running well and now has a great commuter vehicle. It's very comfortable! I'm happy he's happy. I'm also happy he's been taking the kids to school each morning, it's so nice!
