If you can stand to look at it and it's mechnically sound, it might not be too far off from a decent price.

the parts are worth more than the car itself, and from the looks of it, it has probably been beat on. If reliability is important I would give it a thorough inspection or have a shop go over it. however, if you are just going for the looks, and it floats your boat, it sounds reasonable. Not my cup of tea, but whatever you like.

Yes... but your opinion doesn't count.
You don't even know what you would get.... hence the other thread.

When a car is riced out like that I tend to think the driver probably pushed it, as in: accelerated hard, took corners fast, braked hard, etc. Typical teen driver. Probably pushed the car to its limits, especially considering it has an "intake". I also tend to think that automatic transmissions don't take kindly to continued beatings. I have no basis for this, it is just my opinion.
Now I am not saying that this is true for all cars like this, some people respect their rides, and that may be true of this car, as the paint looks clean, but you never know what is under a fresh coat of paint.

You also said for sure you wouldn't buy an American car.

"For sure I wouldn't......." should not be in your vocabulary, because you change your "definite opinion" so regularly it's rediculous.

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

Because its built with no taste or style, and those cars are usually driven by 16 year old highschool white boys who smoke pot and street race to fit in with the black kids. Expect the car to be badly abused and when/if you get pulled over, the officer is more than likely to find drugs in the car, even though they arent yours.
