Yea, for an east coaster! Shipping of a hard top would suck, but for $500 it might be worth the risk.

Not bad, but I'm still not a fan of those who can't take time to write properly. All caps is so 90s.

This is the only one worth the money, and only under one condtion, the regular maintenance items are up to date, as in, all suspension bushings and coolin system done in the last 20k miles. If it hasn't been, you might wanna watch out.
Otherwise, it looks very nice. I love the color.

Yeah, I probably will if I find a super clean shell for cheap. There's some rust underneath and around my black coupe, and it would be much easier to swap everything over than to have new jack spots welded back in. Plus my paint is pretty crappy.
