It has 130k miles on it
Silver with Red Leather Interior
no Rust whatsoever
5 Speed

The Problems
Needs new waterpump, needs alternator and steering belt and the idle is very high and the guy says its some type of sensor or something that needs replaced. It has a little oil leak to.

It would be my first SC but he said he would give it to me for 800 Cash and I really do want this car, it has a flawless exterior.

You could buy a new engine for it and it would still be worth it.

Buy the car but replace the parts , belts, hoses , oil pan gasket,O2 senser,and clutch. Give it a tune-up and change and top off all the fluids (supercharger, rear end ,trany,A.C,etc).Get a biger alternater,alum. pump, if you can replace the battery,MAFand idle motor for shure.

just got my '90 SC for 800 -- front seats need to be reupholstered (I think thats the term for new leather on them) but the back seats are fine, there is one small tear in the interior and the carpet is stained. it needs a new alt, has a major PS fuild leak and needs a new starter -- I'm not regreting the 800$ investment :)

go for it.

As long as you're not relying on it for daily transportation, and you're purely looking at it for a project/toy; go for it. But, for $800 expect problems, and you won't get discouraged and/or frustrated. My advise is always to spend more up front, and get a better one. But, like I said, it all depends on your expectations and plans. I guess for the price, what have you got to lose?

Buy the car and spend another $3000.00 in repairs and upgrade and you're all set.
