    With the Pajero DOA, my wife and I needed something to get us back and forth to work for the next year or so. Enter a friend, that had this sitting on her front lawn for the last 4 months or so

    The dirty:
    2008 Ford Fusion SEL
    268,000 very hard KM on it
    Looks like it's done 268,000KM in 10 years...I don't think there is a square inch of the body that doesn't have a dent, scratch or swirl on it, the interior being the same, but with dog hair...

    It's not what I would have picked, but the price and timing was right, and if we can get a year out of it, we'll be more than happy.

    Only major plans are cleaning the poor thing to get her some respect back!

    Wow, that interior needs a month of weekends spent detoxing! I'm looking forward to the after pics, I'm sure it can be made livable once again.
