Default Score!

Just scored a 91 BRG with 61,300 miles for $2,980! It needs a rear window, slave cylinder and radio bezel and that's it. Going to make a nice fun driver for the wife. She has been driving my 99 for the last week and a half while I was in Canada and now she wants one. Picking it up in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to getting another NA. No pics yet. Trusting the good 'ol boy from souther Missouri. Bought it sight unseen. At that price, I can put a few dollars into it.

Got the car home this weekend. Paint was worse than I thought, definitely not salvageable, but I talked him down another $400. Body is perfect, three little dings. It runs great, drives tight. Zero rust on any suspension components. It seems that it saw no salt, but a ton of sun. But, a $2600 61K car? I'll take it. Going to the body shop for a new coat in a few days. It's going to get a tan top instead of the black as soon as it is back from paint. I got pics but forgot my camera at home. If I sell off the tan full tonneau to a m.net'er for $450 I'm into this thing cheap.

Great find and great price.
Mileage would have been the key for me regardless of shape.

I'd buy another one at that price.
