opinions wanted on 86 560 SEL

    long time lurker here. i have the oppurtunity to get a pretty decent 86 560sel for 1500 bucks. no visible rust, 170k Miles, and a
couple small dings from hurricane damage. (i'm in charlotte county Florida) the interior is very nice not excelent. the problem is that i can't really test drive it. it was driven to where it is now but it has been sitting a few months. it will start but then the fuel pumps start howling and it quits, might restart for a moment or might not. it will always start a few hours later or the next morning. i know i'll need fuel pump, a filter, and maybe a relay just to be safe. it'll be the dailey driver for my wife. i know it's a lot of miles but she's currenly driving an 89 mercury colony park with 151K so it's gotta be a step up. definately looks better. anything i should look at in particular or watch out for? is that WAYYYYY too many miles or just a lot? thanks in advance for any quick replies, i might have to make a decision tomorow. doug

You've recognized the car for what it is and understand what it needs to get back on the road.
Buy it.
After you fix the fuel problem and go through it she'll love it.
If not, its parts are worth $1,500.

No, not too much mileage. I really suggest you have the car checked out before you buy it... the most expensive replacement part on that car would be the hydropneumatic suspension... everything else is reasonable.

that "might come into its possession during * the course of its foreign intelligence activities". * * As a result, the NSA provided the FBI summaries * of six overseas conversations of Mr. Jabara. * * In earlier court proceedings, the FBI acknowledged that it then * disseminated the information to 17 other law-enforcement or intelligence * agencies and three foreign governments. * [snip] * * John Shattuck, Washington director of the ACLU, who represented Mr. Jabara * said "It is difficult to imagine a more sweeping judicial approval of * government action in violation of constitutional rights than the decision * of the panel is this case. Taken to its logical conclusion, the decision * authorizes the Federal Government to restructure its surveillance * activities so that any Federal law-enforcement or intelligence * investigation requiring the interception of private communications could * be conducted WITHOUT A JUDICIAL WARRANT simply by turning to the NSA." * * Under current laws, if the FBI wants to eavesdrop legally on the conversation * of a criminal it must obtain a warrant from a Federal judge. In those cases * where the FBI wants to eavesdrop on a specific individual who it believes * is an agent of a foreign government, it can apply for a warrant from a * special SECRET PANEL of Federal judges established just for that purpose. * * The special missions and advanced technology of the NSA however, make its * operations more difficult to control within the restrictions of the Federal * wiretapping and surveillance laws. * * According to the 1975 report of the Special Senate Intelligence Committee, * the agency has equipment that "sweeps up enormous numbers of communications, * not all of which can be reviewed by intelligence analysts." * * Using "watch lists" --- lists of words and phrases designed to identify * commun

have invested $392 million so far in such a Center, about a four * hour drive from Washington, D.C., and we hope to have it completed * and equipped in about two years... We hope all states will be in the * system by 1998 and will supply information on a continuing basis... * * Meanwhile, we will continue to establish the National Identification * Center for this AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT PURPOSES. * * It should be noted that, since my revelations in 1994, Congressman Neal * Smith and his office refuse to answer inquiries about the National * Identification Center. * * However, in a recent article in Federal Computer Week, a Washington, D.C. * magazine for federal employees, basically admitted the existence of this * Center and its activities. * * In his article, "Federal Agencies Link, Share Databases," John Monroe said: * * Law enforcement agencies across the federal government have poured * money into information technology programs. According to the Government * Market Services Division, federal agencies will spend 5.5 billion * dollars on law enforcement technology between 1995 and 1999... * * The common link between in these programs is to build an information * substructure: A WEB OF CONNECTED DATABASES AND HIGH SPEED NETWORKS * THAT WILL MAKE DATA INSTANTLY AVAILABLE TO FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL * LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS. * * The federal government's goal is to BRING RANDOM PIECES OF DATA * TOGETHER TO GET A MORE COMPLETE PICTURE---WHAT SOME CALL INTELLIGENCE.
Wow. All federal agencies will be linked together in a vast intelligence network. Handheld fingerprint devices will be
