I'm not a fan of the color combo nor the automatic tranny....but for $11k.

While it has the sport wheel and 7 spoke Spring wheels, the ride height 
looks tall for a sport package car...but maybe the pics don't do it justice.
The wheels could have been added, and the sport wheel was a standalone 
option..I'm sure you know.

Looks like it has the trip computer...an option in 99.
Certainly a lot of car for $11500.

I'd keep it regardless..clean it...fix what it needs and try to sell it for 
$15k or something...make a few bucks.
Or just drive it!  IF you can stand the color combo and automatic tranny.
