Smile 84 euro

i am looking at a euro gray market there parts support and if everything checked out then what would be the consesus opinion??

84 500 8cyl 186,000 smogged and tagged currently....kept in california.

car is dual chained and runs perfect and the owner is tweaking the imperfections and having the tranny serviced and the inside heat fixed...

wants 2400.00 for that too good of a deal to pass up? or is it a money pit?

if it is a good solid car without too many issues it sounds ok. the euro 500s are pretty quick.

$2400 is a good deal and finding parts will be easy. If the car looks good overall, then it was probably well-cared for and should last another 100k.
