Wha???? Barls, all okay? Its your first baby?

barls - February 28th, 2022 at 09:38 PM

yeah i wish it wasn't so but things change and it need to go to someone that will look after it like i did. i did rough numbers and ive spent over 50K on it in the time i owned it. so its a bargain at this price.

here's some interior pics
