How come I can't sell this thing? Price is now down to $4000, seems fair to me...
I didn't think it would take this long.

I did.
I think the "problem" is, there are still many cheap Beetles in Portland. People don't seem to know or care what's lurking under the paint, however.

Yep, a couple. Sheesh. Most likely user error on my part. You mentioned a set of cylinders/pistons? Talk to me.

Bug is sold to a nice young guy from Tacoma, his first car. He seems very mellow and attentive.
Tomorrow he is bringing me cash, and off she goes. It will be nice to pass on the karma and move on. Carma.
And now I can plan a couple camp trips, geez it was gettin down to the wire here!
