I am looking for a low milage, built FJ80 / FZJ80 / LX450 of similar value / build quality.
This car has been in my life for a long long time. 15 years to be exact. She was my 1st car.
I already know Im probably going to regret this for the rest of my life but I think Im ready to take the plunge and let her go...
I've moved to the high desert, everything here is off-road related... The Nova just sits in the garage and other than the occasional Starbucks run (1 mile away) every couple weeks, she just sits there. So literally for the last 2 years it been driven 2-4 miles a month max (really, with the occasional cruise around town or to the track, it wasn't much different before the move up here either)
I entered the Nova in 1 car show and came home with a 2nd place trophy out of 400 cars, Im sure if I would have been more active with the shows, she would have won many many more

One of the things I love about this car is its solidness. Doors shut super smooth (smoother than my new FJ), the ride is awesome, no rattles even on speed bumps. Best way to describe it is that it feels like it was just built.
-Trans is bad but not enough to stop me from going to the coffee shop. Regardless, the trans will be swapped when the car is purchased.
-Once the reality of someone purchasing this thing sets in, you might have to deal with a grown man crying during the purchase...
