I spoke to the second owner, who's only had the car a year. He said he's a DIYer, who spent about 100 hours playing around since he got it. The A/C compressor was done, but he doesn't have any service receipts. He bought it from a dealer and tried contacting the original owner but with no luck. The guy sounded for real, but I'm concered about the clutch, trans, and other expensive breakdowns in addition to just the normal high-mileage maintenance like suspension parts.
Is it worth a test drive? Do you think there's a buyer for it next year with 150k miles?
I got terrible beat up on a 92 svx w/ 160k that I paid $5500 for and then put $3k in a trans and fixups, but couldn't sell the car and had to junk it a year later. I don't want the same experience.
Thanks for your input.
