Thanks for the input, but I don;t think that car is correct. At least not for me. If it actually had 37K, then it was a HARD 38K. I wouldn't expect a car with that mileage to have torn leather seats, worn out steering wheel covering, sun-faded signal lever, pass airbag cover curled up. The guy flipped thru the carfax kinda quick, and it's a PA car, which probably means some salt, but cooler temps. the paint was in fairly foul shape. The trunk lid apparently held tap dance classes or parades from the multitude of scuff marks. the side trim was faded/blackened. It just did not convince me that 37K was the correct mileage. Did have good tires on it.
It idled poorly also. I didn't even drive it. It didn't feel right, so I left it at that. It might be a great car for someone, but not for me. The search continues. Am considering doing a blog on the saga of the $2k car hunt, just to let people know how that goes. Might help someone someday. I think it can be done and get a fairly nice car. I've seen several nicer cars for $2k that I would have more faith in, I think.
Thanks again for all your help. Will probably lurk around for a while at any rate - ya'll have some great looking cars.
