what did it go for new? i'm not sure what it would have been then, and what that would be in australian dollars

most likely about half the original price, though

well actually he bought it 2nd hand for about $1200 Australian

he sort of hinted at wanting $1000 for it but i don't want to get ripped off, and i don't really wanna rip him off
oh and would not having the original PUPs lower the price?

I played a 97 explorer once, they play and feel amazing. They were selling it for $1500 and I thought that was a good deal >.>
