But what are you going to spend, humm, lets see. If you pick up a "In Great Condition" lets say same year 1990 with about what 115k miles on it you are going to pay (at least here in Rust free California) about 14k, yes about 14k this is true. Now after you spend about 14k you will need to put in about $3500 if you do not then you should just drive the car off a cliff cause it will blow up soon either way (am I getting to dramatic about this) on belts hoses radiators, timing chains, plugs, plug wires, Tires, fluids, air filters, gaskets, bushings, shocks and other tid bits, and if you are not doing it yourself, well then there is labor. Also what about the exterior, is that paint going to be flawless, no? It will have the paint of 115k miles and ten years on it, mine does not. I know my car is worth alot, alot more then 14k it has only 45996 miles on it and the paint is perfect and the seats look like they have never been sat in and it has had no Accidents and runs perfect. So there you have my 00.2 (and rambling skills) on why I am asking what I am asking for my car, I could be wrong.
