tell him youll pay $2400 for it (max) & hell yea as long as it doesnt have any problems (these cars are good to 400-600k miles if taken proper care of, even if ran hard semi regularly).
oh and this "its 11 years old & has so many miles" crap is coming from pampered people that think only new cars run good, & assume cars just automatically fall apart.
ive got news for you, how many late 80's toyota camrys/acura integras/honda civics/nissan trucks&cars/subarus do you see on the road driving great every single day?
"OMG 25 years old!?! its going to light itself on fire & blow up catastrophically!!!!"
people like this are why car companys can make lineups that are 80% crap & still sell tons of cars every year, because people think you need new cars every 90-100k miles LOL.
my 94 accord EX with 2.2 vtec & auto tranny got a header & cold air intake, & i ran the dog crap clear out of it to redline with 340k miles on it when i got it, & drove it like that to 440k before i got rid of it, & the trans/engine were PERFECT, had GOBS of power.
also 90-94 luminas/87-94 s10's, just pay attention to how many of those bad boys you see on the road in a day & most have over 240 (and those arent built half as well as a honda as far as engines & trans go!!)
