miles, and general condition? I have cash.
Thanks,

HI lewis , it black and white , the milies only 1324 , in very good condition , how much your best offer ? , and where are you located ? , about the payment i only accept wire transfer bank.

thanks

I am located in Northridge California and have a hunch you are located overseas. Am I right? I think the logistics of an overseas deal are too risky. Are you familiar with the African scams?
If you are located in California than I think we can do business.
Regards,
Lewis
