Sounds too good. I'd buy it, after taking a good look at it and driving it if it didn't have too terribly high miles.

i'd never ever EVERRRRR buy someone else's project car, ESPECIALLY if it was turbo'd! you have no idea if/what corners were cut, what's been ghetto-rigged, if they did some homemade electrical work, etc etc.

^I second that.

You don't really know. Ask why they're selling the car?
