Re: Is this a good deal?
Doug, is the car in MI? I am from MI and would look at it with you if you wanted.
Here's the deal. We know it's not a numbers matching car. Is the body solid? Was the work done on suspension and engine bay look professional? Does it drive well? You never know what you're going to get with an engine but there are things to look for. How about the interior? Good shape.
It comes down to this, if you like the car and it's in your budget, buy it. I can't believe the naysayers that pounce on posts like this. It's your money, if the car is structurally sound, runs well, and looks good, buy it and don't look back.
