Default Should I buy it?

I was offered a second chance offer on this '97 40th SSEi on ebay near me -

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=330097483647

Should I do it? It'* one HELL of a deal, only $1575 with 110k.

If the carfax is clean and you will not be put in the poor house buying it, I say go for it. Will they let you test drive it?

On a side note, I never noticed how little legroom rear occupants have in the 92-99s

Wow, that is a very low price for a very capable and rare car.

After looking at all the pictures I noticed the trunk has a huge dent, but the owners ad says "In Great Condition. Never Wrecked. VERY FAST, and rides great" That raises a flag

If they were careless enough to put a dent in the car, they could have been careless with maintenance of the car which could be a reason it is so cheap. If it sounds too good to be true...It probably is

Well, anyone that wants it, let me know, I'll contact her and discuss the sale. Interested buyer can paypal me the money for the car plus $100 for me doing the service for you, and I'll buy it for the interested buyer, and get the title, and you can come pick it up from me.
