I say do it. I'm sure the interior could be updated somehow.

whooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!

i was hoping someone would say something bad to give me an excuse not to buy it and save some money :P


TODDSTER as for tuning it was done by the owner, which been playing with 3800'* for a while.. i still didnt see the car because its 450km away.. i still didnt get the chance to go see it.. but been talking to him for over a month now and im going hopefullly monday to see it... or whenever the weather gets a little better... its -28*f as we speak :(


but thanks everyone.. it looks like a very very nice car.. it was painted this summer.. and everything is still fresh... stored in a garage at the moment... all it needs to have the intercooler FMHE mounted in the front.. IC is still not installed.. but he said its tuned damn well...

i also gotta find a place in edmonton to rent for few months to hide it..

yes.. parents dont know about it lol

Where in the world may I ask do you get the $$???

I'm just barely able to afford some mods because of the 40hr work weeks I've had for the last 2 months. I'm also getting laid off in 2 weeks.

Probably not much you'd be able to tell about the tranny without taking it apart. I'd ask the guy to take it for a drive. You could at least feel if it had any major problems. I have no experience whatsoever with mid-engines though so I'm sure someone else can throw in some more advice on this one.

Other things to look at:
  • Check every surface for rust (a no-brainer)
  • Look to see if factory stickers are missing (Ex: my dad'* tarsus doesn't have any stickers in the front of the engine bay, but has them everywhere else. The car had been in a front-end wreck).
  • Check lights, turn signals, brakes and really anything you can that'* powered
  • Look over the interior, if it is beat up and wasn't taken care of, chances are the rest of the car wasn't either
