Hi! I'm a nurse and native Californian who now works in the emergency dept. at one of the world's greatest hospitals here in Baltimore. I ride my bike everywhere around town so my car is sitting unused almost all the time. I have driven her up to Alaska and back and all around the western US and across the country. She has never broken down once and she is zippy as heck. I love her. She has some dents and scratches but she will treat you well, promise!
