I would be concerned about

- location, most buyers are from the US

- shock tower rust. if they are rusted, what else is?

- lack of body pics. More rust?

- questionable mods. Most guys on this board wouldn't put on something like that crappy looking(in my opinion) power window dealie. If the owner puts on stuff like that...what else is there? Not that I noticed anything else, but I would definitely be wondering about other things.

Having said that, if I had the cash and was closer, I would probably at least bid the $1600 on it.

its probably a rusty nightmare under the three-day-old-pea-soup-colored paint. "needs a tune up" in tii parlance could mean easily $1000 in kfish stuff (or not), jc whitless electric windows, etc... if he started bidding at $1 it might be up to $1600 by now, but possibly people are passing it up. mostly id be concerned about a canadian terminal rustbucket issue.

just some thoughts ;)

In very general terms, (not specific as I have not seen this car), virtually all 02s native to Southwestern Ontario (Toronto) are rustbags. Having parted down many many 02s from this area, even the low mileage,stored indoors for years cars are in terrible shape structurally. A couple winters in the salt here and the cars are finished. Shock towers, inner fenders, rear body mounts, front subframes are all consumed. If the car is typical Toronto, it is a parts car only. Just my .02 cents worth.
