Yep, I'm at it again. Yes, I had just recently gotten a 2002 RL. Video link here.

Technically I didn't actually own that car. It just passed through my shop as the owners changed. I explain that a little better in the video.

That said, I got this car for $200. Considering it was a running and driving car, I think I did pretty good. It's not without it's issues as you can see in the video, but it does have some working parts that I can use for the 2002 in the previous video. Namely, the steering wheel adjustment motors. I can probably make my money back on those alone.

This will be a nice car to make videos with. Just don't expect them to come out anytime soon. I've parked this car for the moment while I work on the #FairmontProject and a few other things. Keep an eye on my monthly news letters for info.
