This sounds like a decent prospect.  All the "problems" you mention are 
easily fixable with less than a grand if you do your own work.  If the 
body is solid, and it just needs paint, the car sounds like it would be 
worth 3 - 4 grand here in the USA At the most!  I'd offer him 5K CAN, and 
don't be too upset if he says no.

Sounds nice, but again, way too much $.  I have seen these in the Toronto 
area for 5 - 6 grand.
