Glen, look for an email from me and thanks for your help!
Thank you for the experienced input, I'm getting the impression that everything done to this car seems to be normal. Your statement about damage to the front or rear is a good point. In the carfax report no accidents were reported however the owner did purchase a new grill and chrome surround so I know I need to check the front. This happened at the same time the radiator was changed which makes me think something hit the car. I think I'll have to test drive and see the car to insure no serious accidents have occurred. Anyways I hope you get your problems resolved, I know its tough having this surreal car and not be able to drive it.
