yep, pretty much matched what they told me, no accidents own since 96. some old lady drove it so it was in good shape. so always took it to the dealer for service and at 120K the shocks aren't even blown.

So, I am guessing you went over it with a fine toothed comb then to check for prior damage? Owner told you that it was resprayed or you had to tell him?

If the car was in an accident, carfax wont tell you unless it was reported to insurance.

I am not trying to rain on your fun, I am just looking out for your best interest.

she knew it was resprayed, she had it done about 3 years ago. she said it was showing its age and she wanted to pretty it up again, she had to replace the top because someone cut it and wanted to redo the paint at the same time. I couldn't find evidence to debate it. You can see older door dings and imperfections were sprayed right over.

Are you going to take the ps rack from your other car nad put it on? At least keep the ps ratio... the non-ps ratio sucks!
