Wow, that'* really cheap. It does have quite a bit of miles on it. Make sure that engine is in good shape before you buy it. There could be many reasons why that car is so inexpensive.

I know I'm putting down my own kind here, but GP'* are more problematic than Bonnies are. At 120,000 miles, there is probably a lot of wear and tear on that car. Judging from the price, I can see it having a few problems here and there that might be a serious inconvenience to fix.

Even for that mileage the price is super low. Hopefully, it just needs something simple like a coupler. That scares many away because it sounds worse than it is. I've seen people go and sell their GTPs and SSEis online for dirt cheap because they say their engine is bad because it sounds like " nuts and bolts " at idle. If only they knew the truth.
