It's a good deal if you think it's a good deal.

It doesn't matter what anyone thinks if you end up with a car you like.

Maybe these questions will help you decide:

- how much do you have to spend to buy an 85 190E with good engine and working AC in your area?

- how much can you sell your car for when you're done working on it?

If the answer to either question is less than $4000, then it appears as though you didn't get the best deal. But again, if you like the car, who cares?

I like you Sixto.

If you like the car, you got a good deal and if you got it for nothing and you donít like it, you have been taken.

Other than impending repairs from such an old car, how is the appearance?

After all, you could purchase a used Ford Escort for more money, but which would you rather be driving?

I think it was a good deal!
