I'm just a car guy. Love anything automotive. Muscle cars, 4wheeling, ratrods, pretty much everything. I've always liked the BMW 2002 and Datsun 510 style. Lightweight and fun to drive. Right now I have a 91 Nissan SE-R fully caged (for sale). It was fun but want to move on. Then I found this ad on craigslist.

What do ya'll think? I was thinking they were priced on the high side but I'm not sure. Any advice? What to look for?

If by "high" you mean huffing industrial solvents, then yes, they're on the high side. If you're looking for 24 Hours of Lemons or Chump Car vehicles, then you might have found some starting points, but you'd be advised to carefully inspect the safety equipment and validate it against the Lemons and/or Chump Car rule books. If you're looking for a daily driver or weekend fun car, you have quite a bit more to look for, including rust in the usual places (frame rails, rockers, floor, fender wells; rotted bushings, seals and rubber lines; signs of previous accidents or abuse. You'd absolutely want to get compression and leak down tests performed under your observation, and you'd want to verify that the car(s) run, shift smoothly, stop straight, and don't smoke on acceleration and/or deceleration.

Unless there are a lot of good spares included in the deal, $6500 is crazy talk.

Thats what I thought. Just wasn't sure on the pricing/rarity of these cars. Its 6500 for both plus extras. I would like one as a daily driver but probably not one of these haha.
