So, Kendras father just passed a week or so ago from cancer. It sucks, but he did smoke and drink alot. Not to go into a long story here , but we ended up with his car. And guess what we have now........

A fricken Kia spectra!!!!! 2006. Yeah how fitting. There is a good and bad about this car. The good, Its has only 51k miles. Now here is the bad. He never took care of it, or washed it, hell he never drove it. The interior is trashed , i mean trashed. When we picked it up, we had a trash bag on the back of the seat, an old towel , and i wore gloves just to drive it home. There was tobacco every where. The drive seat is black, yes black. The dash was covered in god knows what. So we got it home and stared to clean it the best we could. Got it to a point were you could be in it.

So here are a few pictures of the car. These were taken after we cleaned it. Still needs to go to my detail guy.

Hope you didn't lose your lunch.

So whats the plan with this car? Going to sell it . We really dont have use for a 3rd car or room for it. The car drives nice, and would be a fun track toy. Just dont have the room for it. It needs tires, brakes , and a few other things. I should be able to sell it for a good price. Will keep you updated with the car.

What do you guys think?

Wow... that's some grunge there. An '06 with 51k on it? And a slushbox? Maybe 4k? Or I could just be talking out my...

We looked it up on KBB and if we can get the inside cleaned up well enough private sale is around $3900. It definitely is a work in progress.
