A "light roll" - is that like being "a little bit pregnant"?

I'll just bet it has fresh paint, too. Why? Well it is to hide the bondo
and and the body seams that don't line up any more because the whole body
is twisted slightly.

If it is a '92, it will be a non-turbo V-6, and it is my understanding that
the early V-6 engines have expensive oil leakage and head gasket problems.

If you can buy this car for $1,000 or less, it might be marginally
worthwhile, but it really sounds like this one is going to be major trouble

Hate to say it, but this sounds like a barely ambulant parts car. Or worse.
