after too many problems with the 90 that i recently got (and had to return to the dealer), i purchased a 88 deville w/150k miles.
the car is in great mechanical shape with minor cosmetic stuff that i can fix over the course of the time i own it if i choose to.
it has been mechanic owned for the last 5 years and the car of the mechanics sister.
i paid 1200 and the car has:
no mechanical issues that i can see (nor my brother who is more capable with cars than i am)
hot heat and cold ac
power everything (except mirrors)
tv installed into the rear compartment
no alignment issues that i can see
flaking paint in a few places
hubcaps and bumpers need to be cleaned/polished
leather is worn but not ripped
no rust that i can see at all
was this a fair price? any comments or suggestions? i can post pics when i pick it up on monday if anyone is interested. i wan't able to grab the codes before i left but there is on that shows up since the o2 sensor was replaced.
the car will pass state inspection if needed at a nj inspection station (it is already inspected to september of next year).
