i think at 3000 your doing good, look for the rocker rust thats a high dollar fix but other than that its all relatively cheap to maintain. good luck

That is a good deal for 3k. Check for rust under the chassis at the drain holes,rust is not fun. I have the same car and the color is definitely nice.

That's cool. At least it's a 94+...better engine, brakes, and bracing than the earlier models.
