I would get a Carfax on that before I would think about touching that car. Something is very fishy about that one, something tells me the rims were put on the same time as that hood & front end was. Don't be blinded by boost.....Do your homework on this one before you make any moves.

That car looks like bad news to me. In price and condition.

well thanks for all of your opinions guys...
i am going to be going back down next weekend so i will grab the VIN and run a carfax and talk to the guy about the hood/grill. And about the price, he said that he is a wholesale place and he is happy if he makes 2 or 3 hundred dollars on a vehicle he sells so he sells it for cheaper then most used car places would sell... all the vehicles are cheaper that are sitting there. But i guess from all the comments here i will have to look it over w/ a fine tooth comb. Thanks.
