Take some pics when you go. Remember that every little issue, no matter how minor, is a bargaining point.

I got 500 bucks off Jseaberts 93 SSE for him because it had a check engine light. I'd already jumpered for codes when the seller wasn't looking and realized the IAT was disconnected.

yeah i will try to negociate fairest deals. I believe you are able to negociate a fair price when its from an owner as is the '92.
when its a dealer ship, you usually dont get to negociate as much, but financing really helps out.

either way, i believe this is the best chance i have seen since the silver '00 well into 200,000kms i checked out during the summer, and i dont want to wait any longer.
i want to join the double bonnie owner club.

I own a white 96 SSEi. I've had it for two years, and couldn't be happier. I bought it with 180K on it and now we're at 152 and still mopping the floor with Mustangs. It'* been all I can do to keep up with the maintenance on it and the TC light stays on most of the time now. The CVs have 50K on them but aren't clicking yet. Had the whole front end rebuilt 18 months ago (140mph encounter with a mud puddle).
I replaced both front ball joints and hubs myself...successfully, as well as the water pump and A/C air compressor, drier, etc. with the help of a friend. Darned HUD adjustment doesn't work which is annoying I love the thing. It'* tune-up time and I need to change the trans fluid and filter. Any suggestions? I've been running w/o the supercharger belt, the boost guage jumps up and down when it is engaged and it is bad for my driving record. I get my belt back when my last fine is paid off next month.

LOL!
