First question is there still many on the road? Answer is No. Every time I look on Craigslist I see a few ads with 2-3 of these for sell together, they can not seem to make one good ride from them so they sell them or should I say try to sell them, they try everything to get them sold by adding more parts cars to the mix. I would steer clear unless your fine with burning your money.
