Default Looking for a beater

Looking for a work beater and ran across a Nissan 200sx with SR20DET swap... Car *HAS* to be reliable, start every time with no questions asked. Will likely have 3000-5000 miles / month put on it. Would you buy it? Body is perfect, guy wants 3500 bux for it...

No.

If you want reliable get a Corolla.

If it has to be reliable, I'd avoid anything with "swap" listed.
