In the cold light of day it didn't look so awesome. Now that I could see the interior well, I could see the cigarette burns on the seat, damaged steering wheel rubber, mirror controls pushed into the door where they couldn't be reached, and the interior was an unattractive sandstone color which seemed out of place on a black car. The engine was throwing a P0300 Random Misfire code even though the Check Engine Light wasn't on, and the harness to the radiator fan assemble had been cut through, soldered, and the solder broken through, all without insulation. Tires had nails and screws in them and little tread. It drove well enough but my 3.2 felt more powerful and responsive than the 3.5HO in it.
The pawn shop guy had it there "for a friend" who apparently lost his little lot because he couldn't pay the bills and indicated he might take 2000 for it, but I passed on it. Too bad, it looks so great on the outside (except for a cracked headlight).
Parked right next to it was a 2002 LHS with 120,000 miles. If I don't find anything good elsewhere maybe I'll look at that.
