    I would have to say no.  That's just my opinion.  You can pick up a
fairly good condition car like this for a grand more certified if you look
hard enough.

    Don't feel to bad.  My 72 GT6 proves that I'm a cheap masocist.

'87 Audi 4000 Quattro Sedan
'72 Triumph GT6
'83 Toyota Tercel (yoda)     Possible future Sandrail donor...  Maybe
