Default Question not sure where it belongs

This car is for sale down the street from me with this info????
Think its worth it?

1994 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI
153,000 miles. Air bags, abs, ps, lthr, p/seats, p/windows, stereo, sunroof, supercharger.
Many mechanical upgrades in last 3 years: Complete rebuild of transmission (cost $1900), new radiator, struts, water pump, rotors & pads, front wheel bearings, spindle (ABS) assemblies, pcv valve & spark plugs, and crankshaft pulley. White GM paint is beginning to flake. Currently needs oil pump primed for it to run. (Took it to a mechanic to fix crankshaft pulley. He put on a new one, but either overtightened the part or put it on wrong, causing it to crack. Drove it away and less than 20 miles later the car wouldn't start up. Didn't realize the crankshaft pulley was cracked because that part was just fixed. Trying to start the car a couple of times with the part cracked caused the oil pump to lose its prime. We have since replaced the crankshaft pulley again, but the oil pump still needs priming. Perfect project for someone who likes working on cars and wants to get it running again. Or can be bought for parts).

$650, cash only.

I would put that in the For Sale section.

And as this sounds WAY TO FAMILIAR.. follow my advice from last time. Stay away from this car.

Harmonic balancers don't just "crack"
Oil pumps don't lose prime like this

20 miles on a broken part could have killed anything.

RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not moving to the for sale section since you are really asking about this car and not showing us where it is for sale.

You'd put this trans in?

I wouldn't suggest that.

For parts, it might be ok for that price, but don't use the engine.

Yea, your gonna have fun with that white curse paint too. As soon as you fix one spot, another area will start peeling.
