    Looks recently tuned?
    New EGR valve
    A/C is 134a converted
    Belt looks old to me
    Charcoal canister purge line was bypassed.
    Looks fairly well used, but also fairly cared for.

    Well, it's got the 3.8 V6, which in my opinion, is THE engine to have in these......

    Relatively rare gauge cluster. I'd drive it.

    A little late to the party, but for 200k on the odometer that looks like a really well-cared-for car. Someone actually had some pride of ownership with that thing.

    Used to see these everywhere. Now this would be a rare sight. Looks like it is in really good condition. I agree that it looks like something someone really cared about. And I think you're right Marshall, the 3800 is the engine to have.

    I have a 89 Cruiser, so I was drawn to this. Looks to be super clean. Especially with the mention of snow tires, it’s clearly driven in the winter. Wonder what the bottom looks like.

    If it has been in CO most of its life then it is probably pretty clean. They don't use salt like they do here in the pit of hell.
