Default Should I consider it?

There is a white 1993 SSEi here with grey interior. Basically my car just no sunroof. 160k on it. Passenger fender has a hole and a little rust on the driver'* door. i am going to go look at it. Said the interior is dirty and the driver'* seat has a hole in it. Asking $800/BO. What should I offer? It still books on KBB for $2100 in fair condition. And should I go for it? (winter car)

Geoff...You don't need our input on this one. You are already more fluent at wheeling and dealing cars than the majority of us.

I say...look it over..if'n it'* in your price range and there'* a little jingle in your pocket....pick it up.
