No one is far from anything in Maryland. If you drive 45 minutes in any direction in that state you're either in another state or in the Atlantic.

luckily for you, I actually live in Alexandria VA. Lanham, MD 20706 is just on the other side of DC... I could probably swing by this week.

Around Baltimore and DC beltways on a weekday in the morning or early evening, 45 minutes is about 10 miles.

Im not too fond of the mileage, but its hard to find a silver/black 99 SC300.
I found a PERFECT one here in houston, 60k miles. paperwork was all done, I came in the next day with the money and he had sold to someone else. I think I cried on the inside for a week.
I will never trust a dealership again.

I dont want to be offtopic, but yea, MiaTurbo, if you could actually look at this car for me, I would like to know if its worth it, It would help me out alot if youcould.
The only thing I dont like is its 20k miles over what I would have wanted, and then I wonder if its been in snow, or has rust, and then how the interior looks

actually..take pics for me, LOL

It only takes that long because of the draconian speed limits.
