Out here in NS, Lower Sackville is know as the used car capitol of the world.
On the main street, every other business is a used car dealership... honestly... it'* kinda scary.
They often use places like Maco to repaint the cars for like $150-$200, that way they look awesome on the lot, but after 2 months the rust starts to show again.
Of course the shady ones will do lots of other things.... :P
Always be sure to look under the car and in the trunk under the lining when buying a used car.
Too bad about your find Merlin..... just keep looking. And $9,000 is a bit much for a 94... I paid $10,800 Cdn for my 97SSEi in September.
Have you tried AutoTrader.ca ? or 1992 trofeo... hehe (he found my car)
