        With the full disclosure of the owner indicating substantial rust and a trashed interior, I doubt it is a deal. You are looking at a significant investment to get this car into truly good condition. Not to crap in the thread but reality is, you could easily spend another $15k to get it truly right if rust is major.

          it's worth checking out if it's surface rust. It is california and it's not as easy to have something fully rust through.

          does make me wonder how it was treated if the exterior and interior are just thrashed for only 80K.

            Hey Guys,

            Yes, this car is ONLY for those who are looking for a track car OR plan to do a full restoration like Alvin.

            A full resto will be pretty pricy unless someone owns a body shop which would be ideal. Funny as an owner of a local body shop actually approached me on the street as to whether it's for sale so that may work out.

            I would not recommend anyone buy this unless they are very handy and/or has a body shop "hookup" .

            I was initially inspired by Alvin's cars and always wanting a fresh new paintjob in Jet black. Bought this car w/ those plans, then ran into a very clean stock one, for more $ obviously and bought that one too. Just dont think I'll have the time to devote to such a large project.

            Have had a lot of interest already so I hope it goes to the right home!

              Just to be clear, I am not inferring that the car is not worth the asking price, it most certainly is. Good luck with the sale Andy!
              Cheers,

                I think you were right on and brought up a good point Jed. This car would be a VERY pricy undertaking to get up to Alvin's standards especially if one were to pay someone else to do all the work.

                But, it would be a great car for a do it yourselfer who has some skills, time and an extra garage space and take their time. I'd love to do that myself honestly but with a 20 month old daughter at home, I think I need to be realistic about what I do w/ my free time.

                  Just curious I was looking at a car almost exactly like this a few months back in Florida, is this by chance the same car?

                    Yup same car. Douglas, previious owner, was a great guy to work with. Sad part is it cost me $1100 to just ship the darn thing to CA so I'm sure I'll be taking a hit on it monetarily...

                      Oh man I was gonna buy that car from Douglus, but he never called back to finalize, he said the engine was very strong because he was getting it ready to be a race car if thats true then maybe I might consider this one again.

                        How come it has British plates in the pic?
                        "H" registration means a 90 or 91 model too.. Was it imported?

                              Just trying to decide if I want to learn how to do body work. 8-) Makes me sad to see one with low mileage go unrestored.
