    Honestly, the abused ones around me seem to be about that price, the nice ones are 20k+. Just have to see what all it needs

    I wouldn't pay more than 9K for that car. You already have to replace the hood, fender, bumper, headlights, and possibly fogs. Don't forget the cost of paint. The double din looks broken as all hell and he rates the interior at a 5. Muffler delete is another way of saying he cheaped out on exhaust. Bullit wheels on a cobra is just a facepalm. Honestly even if that car was $5k I still wouldn't buy it because it seriously looks like a piece of crap that the owner didn't take care of.

    I'd stay away. Sounds like el cheapo owns it, and probably cheaped out on maintenance too. I'd pay 9k. Look at all the body panels that need fixing/replacing, plus paint, plus interior stuff, God knows what else

    I'd stay away from this one..I know it's tempting because its a terminator but I bought a stock one minus the exhaust with 59k miles for 16k. If you're serious about buying one then look around for the right one. I'm from Des moines and traveled to Chicago for it. You should be willing to travel for it. This one looks like it been abused.

    Mine was hit in the same spot and didnt do half the damage you see and it ended up being $2300 worth of damage. I see this being upwards of $3500 worth of damage. Id say $10k, I've seen rebuilt titled ones going for more.

    No more than 10k. The beat interior is enough to keep me away.

    I'd like to save the car, but no way I'd pay more than 10k. I bet he owes more than that.

    Maybe I'm old school, paranoid or both, but a broken car is a worthless car IMO. I'd gladly pay the premium for a running, driving, intact car than something that needs to be restored. Who knows what else is wrong with that thing...

    If you can get it cheap say 8-10k then it is worth it IMO because of the low miles if the damage is only cosmetic.

    There are so many 99-04's out there that you can find and change broken interior parts easily and I see these cars parted out everywhere if you want OEM body parts.

    As long as the big $$$$ pieces are in good working order I would not be afraid to pull the trigger ie: engine/trans/irs.

    Clean title?

    I would not pay his price under 10k for sure! Best thing to do is if your into that car bring a someone from a body shop who you have a good friend relationship with to give you general idea what your going to be spending. The miles on the clock are worth it for a car that is almost 10-11 years old now, but that doesn't mean you have to pay out the butt for it. I would also do a compression test on these engines too because I heard horror stories of people putting everything back to stock with hurt motor selling it to the unsuspecting buyer. Another thing is how the heck you damage a double din screen like that? Did he punch it?

    If i were to get it, I would probably put on a different hood, People want 400-500 for a cracked 03-04 hood. Not sure on the hood i would choose. But the other items, front bumper, headlights, header panel, and fender shouldnt be to hard to get. The other thing i am afraid of, how far back the fender was pushed, and how much of the intercooler and other items underneath the front bumper were wrecked.

    But if i could get the panels installed and nothing else was messed up, I would just end up plasti-dipping the car like metallic blue...
    We always need a project to work on lol.

    The ad says it has a lien on it, so im guessing that it does.


    Well i would offer him 8k max on the car. There are interior pieces missing on the car as well as a damaged stereo. He hasnt responded to my email so i think it may just be a ruse... Who know.

    It was just a dream..
