Default Should I buy this?

Hey,

I just checked a miata on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...tab%3DWatching

Now Rick send me the carfax report and it's said that the car was involved in two accident (one minor, the other unknown)

12/26/1996
North Carolina
Police Report
Cary, NC
Accident reported
Involving a rear impact
or collision
-------------------
02/16/2001
North Carolina
Police Report
Accident reported
in Iredell County
Involving a right rear impact
with another motor vehicle
Very minor damage reported
---------------------------------

Should I pass over this and try to bid on it or it could be unsafe? I imagine that the car isn't VGA so it must be very little accident no?

Right now, the car is 1000$ or so but there is 4 days left. And if I buy it, I have to think about the importation to Canada....

Please help!

personally i would never purchase a car off of ebay, unless i went to actually see it. I had a bad experience and almost lost my money on a 69 camaro. So watch it and see if its a scam or not.

172K, are you smoking crack?
there is nothing appealing on that car if you ask me, what would it cost to import it?
that car is not worth more than 1500 total IMO

Oh I did not check the miles....

I think I should just check some cars on craiglist and it should be better. But there's almost nothing near Vermont or Maine. Is there people in those states or near? I think the New Hampshire would be the very far I would like to go to see the car.

Thanks for your input guys!

ditto on an '83 bronco 4x4. I asked specifically if it was drivable and safe... started driving it off the lot and it had NO brakes... Almost died on that one.
