Sure is, did you ask him if he bought it new? If he did it was a great investment.

They're great investments. My uncle has two of them. He bought them when they were less than 2-3 years old and they've done nothing but appreciate.

They're a blast to drive too

Edit: Here's a couple pics

I use to see them quite often. With all the Ford exec's living around here, this is probably the most you'll see in one place, even with our downright terrible roads. :/

Very nice - You'll have to post a photo. Whilst not my cup of tea to live in full time, I can really appreciate those old log and mortar homes.
