Best post yet. Car looks good for 10k. If I were in fl I’d offer him 8k and part it if it turns out to be a rotten candy appleGood god. Talk about being picky in the comments.... This is starting to look like Facebook. Except there, the car is worth $100,000 (and nobody's whipping out the money).
Assess the exact car and decide what that exact car is worth TO YOU in the exact condition that it's in. If you can buy the car for less than that, buy it.
Then start looking for a used console in good shape and start tinkering with it to make it yours and put it back 'right'. There's nothing on that car that can't be fixed.
If, by some chance, you have to have a 100% factory original concours car in perfect condition never touched by human hands, then keep looking (and don't forget to swing by the bank for that HELOC).
As of know, a GN is still a car. They haven't yet moved into Cobra, Pantera, 250GTO territory.
