Default Worth it? Bartering work for a car.

I would like to have a second car, so I can do more work to the Bonnie. So, does this sound like a good deal? This guy has a 1997 GP GTP that needs a waterpump, a 96 Cavalier that needs suspension work and a 96 Intrepid that needs suspension work. For all that work, he is gonna give me a 1994 Cutlass Supreme SL. It is black with black interior and needs a return fuel line (which I can replace with FI hose no problem) and has 115k on it. Fair trade?

He said its the 3100. I do NOT want a 3.4. That engine is a biotch to work on.

Ahh.. that makes me feel better. I really want this Cutlass. Black with black interior, 115k on the 3100, and he said it has been babied. If I get it, that means MAJOR mods for the Bonnie.

I'd do it. Suspension work is fairly easy and the parts are fairly cheap if they're generics, If your paying for them too that is.
