I love these cars and I have a chance to buy one from a guy who is
asking $4000 for a red one.
It has 120000 miles and the interior is a bit beat up - seams in seats
are open thus exposing foam underneath and the rear deck area is not

work done to the rear quarter panels (has receipts). The exterior looks
really good except...
It has been in a recent accident and the rear bumper had been ripped off
as a result. It doesn't look like that much of a fix to me. The guy has
an estimate from a bod shop of $1500 to fix that problem. He says he is
asking $4000 because the car could easily be repaired and is very
desirable as an aftermarket project. Indeed some of these cars do sell
for quite a bit of coin after modifying.
I drove it and it has a bit of a valve knocking but I think that's not a
difficult fix either. The air conditioning does not work either but
