    I agree, somewhere in the $15k-$20k range.

    Is it a Strawberry or Cherry Jellybean? I only like Strawberry! Or is it one of those special Margarita flavors?

    I’m afraid to try it, looks like cinnamon.

    Looks like bidding ended at $8k. From the previous thread on this with the Hemmings listing, they were hoping for $29k+. I would guess that they would need a few more years of storage before someone is going to pony up that much! If it didn't have the sunroof (I can't recall if you could get them without) I would have picked it up as a commuter ten years ago, if it was between 5k and 9k.
    Of course as others will point out, it needs all of the maintenance anyway most likely, as who wants to drive a car with 25 year old belts and hoses and seals?

    98s and 99s came totally loaded, with only a couple of options, like CA emissions. 98s were $29,550 and 99s were $29,600.

    98 was supposed to be the last year, but they ran off some 99s after the dismal 98 sales.

    Properly stored indoors, there is no issue with seals, belts and hoses. That's an "old mechanics myth" from before the 60s. Modern compounds used for seals, belts and hoses don't have the issues of your 35 Ford with non-synthetic components, made of fabric or horsehair!

    My 10,993 mile SHO finally got leaky a/c seals about 6-8 years ago. And the conversion to R134a at that time still blows cold air. The original tires don't even show any cracks!

    Agreed, I think $15k is a fair price but it is far from $30.

    I looked at the pictures of the interior and the leather looks like it is wrinkled skin. I checked the conversion, 1 human year is the equivalent to 3.64 Bull years. So that is over 87 years old and would need cosmetic surgery. Maybe its time for some Botox injections.
