Default Buying a 1993 Buick Lesabre tomorrow.

So i am lookin online and i see an ad on a forum fora 1993 buick lesabre so im like hmmm.. I go there and the guy says he just wants it outta his driveway and it has some rear end damage. The bumper is smashed on the right and the lights are messed and the trunk wont close. I offer him $200 and he said "that'll take it. To my amazement i went and test drove it and it drove really nice and the tranny was smoothe. It had power everything and that weird manual sunroof. Fully loaded. 160xxx miles. Old lady previous owner. So im buying it. This was smart?

Pretty sure i can. If anything i could just get a bumper, trunk, and lights at a yard. Hope the chassis isn't bent.

Anyone got any benchmarks for this car? 0-60? I know it cant be impressive but i still wanna know.

LeSabres are nice cars! Sounds like the one I had before I got the Bonne.

Sounds like you got a helluva deal to me!

My current car outperforms it then motorwise. The 88'* 0-60 is pretty much 10 and the quarter is 17.05 . Not that i care. This one has like no rust and buttons and adjustments out the wazoo. Just the messed rear end that i think i can fix. Ganna pick it up tomorrow. Pretty exited.
