    Not sure if this is the best place in the forum to ask, but I couldn't find anywhere else. I'm looking at possibly purchasing this 86: https://annapolis.craigslist.org/cto/5977796998.html He wants 7k, but I'd try and get it for 5.5-6k. It's the cleanest 86 I've ever seen for sale around me. Is it worth it? Why or why not? Also, any major red flags or anything of the sort?

    Don-t be fooled by a respray and some brand new cheapie mags, it could be someones pride and joy, or it could be a right shitter with pretty paint. Take it for a long drive, and go by a body shop and ask about the work on the body. Take it by a mechanic and ask about the engine.

    Blows my mind if he knew about samq why he cut the firewall and didnt use the right sam q kit. Could be an illegal mod, in my state your car is a throw away if you cut the firewall.

    Looks pretty cool and if it was in Australia, be looking at a fair higher asking price.
    On another note, I have never seen an early model trueno run free bumper until now.
