One Owner 76 2002 Completely Original So Cal Time Capsule

Recommended Posts

Available for sale is likely one of the most original and best preserved original condition one owner daily driven 2002's in existence. This very special 2002 was a first wedding anniversary present from her husband, after celebrating her 41st wedding anniversary she has decided to sell the car. It has been garaged all its life in San Diego CA, recently it was displaced from the garage and she does not have the heart to let it sit on her street under a cover as she is no longer driving it enough.

She has asked for me to post the car here in an attempt to find another enthusiast owner to pass the car along to so it may be loved and preserved for another 4 decades. The owner is not computer savvy and wishes to reach the right audience, thus the reason for my participation. The light patina on this car makes it feel like such a special car, average people cannot believe the car has not been restored, enthusiasts are amazed by its originality. A car is only original once, there is a certain essence lost by completely restoring a car even at great expense.

The car has been maintained by a couple different mechanics over the years and is brought in to the world famous La Jolla Independent for most major work. Carl completed the new window seal and windshield replacement at the end of August.
