When you get pics, get a good pic of the rear seat where the seatbelt nearly attaches to the back deck. Look for a tab that sticks out.. you want fold down rear seat...trust me.

FWIW I got my 00 with 161K on it for $1400. It needed brakes, struts and a serious cleaning. $3700 is pretty close to KBB full value.

Could you elaborate on the tab where the seatbelt attaches to the back deck? What am I looking for? I need to tell him what to take pictures of since at this time he'* just going to send me whatever he has available already taken from before.

Nevermind. Reading your huge thread on Bonnevillepro made me realize what you were talking about.

Funny that with the exception of the interior color and the rear spoiler, these cars are nearly identical.

Alright, the more I've thought about it, the more I've decided I want this car.

I called him and left him a voicemail saying I have some more questions about the car.

I was going to ask generic things such as does he have maintenance records, were the LIM gaskets done, was the supercharger oil changed, any sunroof leaks, any leaks at all when it rains, A/C, were the shocks ever changed, brakes, etc. Anything else in particular I should ask him?

Nevermind, the search continues. I hate dishonest people. The guy said he couldn't get me more pictures till Monday since he was out of town, and he texted me to tell me the car sold today, after I called him and left him a voicemail last night. I don't know why I even trust people anymore.
