I would buy it to part it and have spare parts for what your driving now. It looks like it has been beaten and abused.

Re: thinking of buying another lude..what do ya think?

Lotta work to do it seems. Clutch, alignment, windshield, sounds like a blown head gasket, new fender which will probably include paint.

If you have the time, do it! Otherwise I would pass...

Re: thinking of buying another lude..what do ya think?

consider the miles too if you plan on keeping it for awhile. yes it is a honda but they still need maintenance at the higher mileage

Re: thinking of buying another lude..what do ya think?

Go for it. He lowered (was it for you or lowered for everyone?) If he lowered for everyone and you're not real desperate wait ONE day and call him, and give him a lower price than that 850. Sounds like he's desperate.

Desperate indeed. The SiR came with the H22. You could probably make some money parting it out. But having a project car is just oh-so-fun. Buy it dood.
