This thread deserves to be locked. This is a question that should not be asked.

$650 for my stock '92 with 92k. It needed a timing belt, tires and a rear window for the soft top. It also had a small dent above the wheel in the right rear quarter panel and flaking paint on the trunk. I got it off my friend's brother.
