Not a typo just well maintained and regular maintenance on rubber and plastic parts. The block has never overheated and the head has never needed to be removed. The car has never been flogged, its only been babied, literally "granny shifted" by a little old lady who bought it new in 1998.

I know because I watched as she always shifted below 3000 rpms. Always! Most of her driving was highway in central california coast.

Her mechanic always used 10-w30 castrol. I changed out the valve cover seals after she stopped driving it and was so impressed with lack of oil/deposit/sludge that I switched all my cars to castrol. I now add some risolone with zinc based on oil reformulation.

The clutch feels great, no slipping at all, but I don't know the remaining life. Occasionally I hear a faint sound of the slave pushout bearing with clutch engaged but in neutral. I have a very good ear.

The driveshaft is fine. Bearing is silent, the guibo is showing some age but not critical.

I can't remember the window tint percent. The installer had three levels, I chose the middle. Its not "limo"

If I were keeping this car, the next thing I'd do would be to change out the timing chain guides. Fairly inexpensive parts, but would take some labor time that I can't spare right now.
