    This car is my garage queen... Trying to buy a house, so this has to go, as it never gets driven.


    This car was built and EXTREMELY maintained by James Huber, aka St Louis SHO. He built it for a show car/daily driver for his wife, but at the time, for personal reasons, needed to sell the car. I just sold my White g8 and was looking for a new daily driver. It was WAY too nice to daily drive, so i put it in my garage. Being that I have two other cars, this one gets driven the least. I think I only put on 3,000 miles since I bought it 17 months ago.

    This car is a cruiser... its a couch on wheels. The seats are SUPER comfy. I averaged 26.5 mpg on the way home from St. Louis when I purchased it. You can turn the knobs on the suspension from SUPER FIRM, to SOFT, and it shows.

    $5500 .. but open to reasonable offers
