I found a 1998 SVT Cobra Coupe (Black) with 106,000 miles on it and I need some buying advice from people who know this car well. The guy is almost 4 hours away, and I don't want to travel for a car that is overpriced or could be junk. How do I know? Things to know about the car: -Clean carfax, the guy said he worked at a dealership and changed all his oil/fluids etc himself. -Ford clutch kit 3 months ago (new clutch I'm guessing) -New rear tires (Khumo Ecsta AST) but the fronts will need to be replaced soon -Small 3x4 spider/paint crack mark from backing into someone (previous owner did) -3 owner car -Current owner said the transmission does not grind, and the rear end is stock and strong but anyone can SAY that. -I've seen hi-res close ups of the entire car inside and out and it's in very good shape inside and out, engine bay, interior etc. -Has "performance jet chip"... whatever the -Dual Flowmaster straight pipe exhaust -He said it was taken down the 1/8th strip and ran a 9 flat... (it's been raced). He said he's had the car up for sale for a while and needs to move it. He originally wanted $7,500 but reduced it to $6,800 and said his rock bottom was $6,000 on the car. I don't want to travel, buy a car and then have the engine toasty on me, or the rear end blow or the transmission blow... What should I pay for this car MAX! What should I make sure I find out from this guy before I make the trip and what should I do when I get there, listen for, look for etc? I like the car and it sounds good but I don't have the cash to fix anything major, I'm pushing my budget as is for the thing. Do you think I can get him lower? What should I tell him to do so? What should I make SURE of before driving this thing home? I'd like some stuff to pitch to him to get him lower but I don't know enough about the market or the car... Heres a pic of the boo boo... how bad is it? Cost to repair?
