Looks like a good deal to me.
$250 for a starter? Seems high, is that right?

I'd hit that. Only difference is I'd stick some money in it and drive it tell the wheels fall off.

42k old 2000 L67 starter sitting in here on the shelf if you find you need one. I might even throw in a free new Magnflow HF 2.5" Cat for $250.
For $2000, go check it out, check for fender and door prices on www.car-part.com (about $200-400 apiece in color if you can find between Brainerd/Fergus Falls -I'll pick up if you want me to -if I have day off work within the next 2 months- and as far south/east/west as you want to drive).
Go over the lows of the car, mention a couple high points to not sound like a jerk, and then offer them $1500 in green-backs.

I have 2000 cash in hand.. going to check it out in 2 hours (probably purchase unless there is something MAJOR wrong)

I think I'm gonna offer 1750 and see if he bites.

I am picturing a 30-35yr old business man that had a mechanic tell him a lot of stuff wrong with his car and he doesnt want to go thru that, so he sells it cheap to get rid of it.
