Hi, all. Just bought a beautiful '05 S197 convertible this morning. Silver w/ black leather interior, chrome wheels, 60,650 miles. Always a WNY car since new. Body is perfect except for a small paint chip in the plastic above the front license plate. The engine compartment is so clean I could have a picnic on it. Attached is one pic I took today. It will look better after they wash and detail it before I pick it up Monday.
I'm a Ford guy from way back: '78 Pinto wagon, '86 Escort GT, '01 and '12 Escapes, '07 F150 (my current daily driver) and a 1948 Ford 8N tractor that I use on my hobby farm.
This is my 4th 'vert altogether - '69 A-H Sprite, '76 MGB, and an '82 MB 380SL all spent time in my garage over the years. My wife is currently on her 3rd New Beetle convertible.
