For a 2002 that doesn't seem to be a bad price...

There was one here, 2000 for that price... Had 30,000 miles on it tho...

There may be others... Lower miles, better price maybe..

It never hurts to look tho..

There is no disadvantage in a supercharged car for miles. That SC will outlast the entire drivetrain. You might have to do a SC coupler (30 bucks) or a trans, but that'* a risk with any car.

Live for today, for tomorrow you may die.



Edit.....offer him 11,500. And don't act that interested. Tell him your concerns about the trans, and see if there'* coupler noise at idle. Use all that to lowball him from an already low price. Tell him the SC coupler and trans are both about due for an SSEi.

i didnt get the car because i Found out that it beat like a redheadded stepchild at the track....there were stickers for the dragstrip, and it was demodded.....it had 8.8 Taylors and a brand new SC nose, it had a stock pulley but had a gatorback on the accessory drive.....and too many miles for too much money
