You live in CA which has the most SCs out of any other states BY FAR. 99% of the CA cars are completely rust free. I don't understand the logic behind buying one on the other end of the country in arguably the worst state in the rust belt. Pretty much all northeastern cars are rotted to hell after 5 years even if he didn't daily drive it but it saw occasional salt exposure.

Bootyman: If you get the car make a thread about your trip. We all would enjoy it. Include pics. If you have issues there are members on your way that could help.

you guys are making a big deal out of nothing.

this is a **** in the bucket for the amount of cash he won it for.

Book a flight get the car, it's been maintained as it's obvious... Check the oil drive the thing home.

This is 1600$! come on. My turbo was more expensive than the car!

Pending everything is in great shape. I would recommend transport. Since NY to CA is a LONG DRIVE to do by yourself. And being March, it's still basically winter in all the states you will be driving thru.

Default She's hot

Left this morning around 10:00 AM just rolled in. Drove about 1000 miles today, and averaged around 90 mph most the way. There were a few patches where I was opening her up and made some very irresponsible decisions. I'm racing it across the country, yeah I know I should appreciate her a little more. But I got two SC's now and I planned this before I even purchased the car.. There were a few very exhilarating maneuvers I made through the endless chains of semi trucks.

Got caught by a cop going bout 95 and got a warning. A retard driving a stick let his piece of crap van roll backwards into her front end. No dents but the paints got some hairline cracks now.. afraid to take off the licence plate frame, I'm guessing the impact left indentations.

I assume there is some people on here who are skeezin just like me, and if I saw someone posting this first thing I would do is reverse image search the pictures, so I can try to find the ad and make a better offer. So I waited til after I purchased it.
