Very awesome! did they know what they had? I bought a very rough 94 1LE. They had no clue what they had. There were invoices in the glove box asking why the AC wasn't cooling down. lol

FYI...I pulled the spare tire and on almost empty is was 3270.

The guy had NO clue of what he had. His mother bought it brand new in Round Rock Texas in Jan of 96.. She passed away in Nov of 18.
. The oil change sticker was dated 2002 to be changed at 30K miles.. Bought the car w 28,370 miles.. Yes, it has sat for 13 yrs only being started, driven short distances. The car was literally in a barn and the guy needed space for his tractor. 96/97 1LE's were equipped with AC... Mine is not blowing cold as I am sure the refrigerant needs replacing, re filling. You would not believe what I paid for this car... I'll keep that to myself.
