Default NB sub $3k?

Maybe it's a typo, but here you go. Not affiliated...

I'm pretty sure its a scam as it was posted in a few other area craigslist including NJ with the exact same ad/pics.

the same ad has now been posted on portland, Oregon craigslist. I emailed the guy and flagged the post.

I guess this is a good of place as any to make a first post.

There actually was a local SE (mohagony mica) in the Baltimore area about a year ago for $4K with a bad motor. I snoozed on it and lost though. Pics and all looked good and the number seemed legit when I called the guy.

Perhaps I'm lucky but I found my 99 for all of $900 with a blown engine. Hopefully the bastard will be up and running this weekend.

Yep, all of the panels are attached but it's far from perfect. The interior is dirty, the paint is faded, and it has some rust near the drain tubes. But still for $900........

The stars were aligned that day. I just happened to take a day off from work, and then happened to look on Craigslist 5 min after it was posted, and then the guy I bought it from happened to be an idiot that didn't take care of his things.

The best part is that I finally got it running yesterday so next up is cleaning and then booooost!

Wow I wish I could find a deal like that. Or an NB for under 5k. I want a 1.8 so I'm looking at 94-95s, and they all seem to be 4k-6k, with some needing work at 3k. Where do you see NBs going for 5k? Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places...also is an NB a better car than an NA?
