    Looking to buy a 91 STS with 55k Mi

    Just looked at a mint condition 91 STS with 55k mi. This seems to be the little old lady story. Any suggestions to help me make sure its a deal?
    I will be driving the car tomorrow but looked it all over today and I was impressed. The car was garaged and it shows. The body / paint is mint. the underside looks less than 5 years old. The engine is clean as is the interior, no stains or tears in the leather. The radio doesn't work well but the cd sounds good (Bose system).
    If I had some idea of what to look for I think that the on board computer may be my best indicator of an issue.
    The only repair that i can see is that the windshield will need to be replaced to get a sticker and that I believe will be around $250-300. The owner and I use the same mechanic so I will talk to him first.
    They are asking $2600, my dad says buy it and my girlfriend says it wont bring me down in her eyes so tis almost a go.
    If I do buy it I will post pics soon.

    From what I've heard, the '91 STS is an extremely rare car. I believe there are only 1800 or so made before the introduction of the '92. If so, I'd go for it. That isn't a bad price at all for the car. I've seen a few of that generation still going for $3500-$4000.

    I don't know much about the 4.9, but from what I've read they are much more reliable engines than the Northstar. They also require premium fuel, but thats a small price to pay for such a nice car. Please post pics if you get it. Good luck.

    Oh, and to the forums!

    91 STS is one of the few cars I'd think about getting to replace my cash-sucking 99.

    They are very nice cars, I owned one before I foolishly let it slip away. Mine was pearl white with tan interior, then I replaced the factory wheels with the chrome wheels from a 99 STS. It was sharp. I always wondered why there weren't many of them, I just thought they were not a popular car, but from what I have read, it was a limited production model. I wish I had know about this site when I owned it. When I find a pic of it I will post it.
