Um yeh was it an EX taxi?

Ive seen a few for 9 - 10 grand at the auctions. Most cheap 98 Fortes are going for anything around 12-15 grand.

750 000, gee! That's 10 times what mine has on the clock, if mines still running like clockwork then. . . . Well I don't want to have it for that long anyway.

I reckon 500,000 kms is an excellent run out of any car
