Close to owning a SSR again
Hi everyone. Had a2005Silver SSR 5 yrs ago. Had it for a year and loved it but got the itch when I saw a Audi TTRS. Traded the SSR and my Camaro SS for it then 1 yr later sold the Audi. Been wanting to get back into an SSR again. The chap who bought it from me says he will sell it back to me for $38000CDN($7000 more)It has 18000 kms on it and in perfect condition.Through research and some car buddies I was guided to a 70 yr old Lady who has 2006 Redline Red. It has the full chrome package, automatic,carpeted bed with the wood slats and solid Red floorboards. Strangely enough I knew of this lady when she bought it new 13 yrs ago. She is a very private individual and is having a friend sell it for her .She has always kept nice cars. This Redline SSR only has 2400kms ,that's less than 1500 miles!!. I have only seen pictures of it. I am told she started and drove the car down the street regularly and changed oil yearly. It is nearly new and she is asking$50000 CDN(roughly $37200US). I played hardball and played on the fact that I grew up in the same community and that I used to pump gas in her cars when I was in Highschool.I offered $42000 CDN($31200 US). No word for 3 days then last night received a text she will accept the $42000. Its a lot of money but it is supposedly almost perfect.I would think I would have to flush/drain all the fluids and replace the 13yr old tires. I am going to see it Tuesday nite. Any comments/suggestions. Hoping to have that permagrin on my face again soon.
