my friend has a 91. Its a great car!

Go for it! Especially with the low miles! Your milage to age ratio will stomp all over mine! (Mine was one of if not THE lowest round these parts for a while)

Just remember low miles on a 16 year old car ain't always a good thing.

Hey, i held my own for a while (I bought it with 38,000 just two years ago)
But then i realized i put more miles on my car in the 6 months that i had my temps than many people put on their car in a year so the miles are gonna rack up quickly. (My best friends house is a 60 mile drive from here)


Yes, just make sure to have the mechanic do a thorough check on the engine.
Then change all the fluids, break her in for a while.. then i found out that a good ole italian break in is necessary to get her to start performing at her best (a few quarter-mile /0-60 type runs) My car felt like it had new life after a few of those.

*sniff* threads like this bring back memories of one RLD.

Be aware of the cam sprocket problem on the 89s, water pumps tend to go as well make sure the fuel and brake lines are in good condition otherwise I cant recall any other issues with the LN3. I'd love one for a winter car.
