From Avon Street, just south of the rr tracks downtown, head east on Hinton Ave. You'll go up and over a hill. Just at the bottom of the hill, it's on the right as you enter "downtown Belmont."

OK, so it sounds like this isn't an extreme good deal that I "need" to jump on. Probably better to wait until the car's been replaced and then see what i can find.

Thanks for all the advice...
