what do u think about this car?

so someone's is selling this car for $2.5k, im kinda interested with it, but let see if dadd say yes to this as my DD. what do u say about this car? i ask him to email me the details of car and this what he said. what do u think of this car?

Quote:
Needs either the seats re-done, or new seats, center console ( current center console is some home made sh*t ), door panels, window guides ( so they dont rattle ), one window roller. Other than that the car has treated me well. Driven it to and from work for a month while my daily driver broke down. Done multiple trips to waco and back with it. The speedometer doesn't work. Other than that it's a fun car. Long tube headers, flow master f-40 exhaust, aggressive sound to it. Passed all texas inspections when registered in texas. Clean title on hand.

I don't know the miles, the gauges for speed and mileage dont work. But temp, oil pressure and volts work. I put royal purple 10-30w, and premium oct in her.
she's never broke down on me once. yea, i put a partial down payment on a car, and the rest is due, hence the low price :-/ sucks but i have to do what i have to do ya know.
here's the picture. oh btw can u guys tell me what year of this car and the generation?

This is a second gen - not so fond of the color and stripes and appears to have been used hard over the years but the body looks solid.

Have a mechanic take a look at it for you especially if it is going to be your DD.

Doesn't look too bad. Stripe is a bit odd, and I'm sure those taillights are illegal painted that dark...But it looks to be a stick? That's a plus! Make sure the body isn't full of bondo, check the frame rails to make sure they aren't rusted out, give it a test drive, and if you like it go ahead and make an offer. Price doesn't seem ridiculous but the car does need some work.

And the car is a 78-81 model, 2nd gen. Can't tell for sure but I would think the owner would know??
