If that car is in the shape you say, has no mechanical defects, and doesn't need anything right away (tires, brakes, etc.) $7900 is not outrageous, but $7400 is better.

While it might be in the BlueBook range, I think it'* a little high for a 1999 N/A 3800. FWIW, my 97 needed the intakes done twice so far: Once around 45K and again around 85K. You really can NOT predict it, and the Dex-Cool coolant appears to make the problem worse in a number of ways, so if you buy it, I'd ask you to seriously consider changing it over to green coolant. (I haven't changed over, yet, but I have no love for the Dex after two intake jobs.)

If it were me, and I were going to spend north of $7000, I'd personally get a 2000+ model, even if I had to spend a little bit more coin to get it. Don't get me wrong, I own and love the 96-99 models, but they're 8 years old now at the newest, and while *far* from being obsolete, I typically keep cars around 12 years, so if it were me, I'd start out with something a little bit newer. In fact, the last two cars I bought; -my `97SE and my wife'* `01 GP GT, were each only 2 years old when I bought them, and I've been very pleased with both cars.
