It will end up costing you around 1500-2000 to replace. I'd pass 130K is a lot of miles. For about 5,000 you can find an '00 with less miles.

I'd say check it out, if u like it nab it! You can always make a project car outta it. I have 4500 for mine with 166 k on it... The only things that were wrong with it was all the rigged crap that people have done to it over the years... Pretty much have gotten it restored, and am very pleased with the car over all. Oh yah and it's five speed and still shifts good...

Re: 3000$$

I paid $5500 for an '00 with only 55,000 miles. The car was in perfect condition! Came with cobra wheels and new tires. I'd pass. You will have more in it than its worth

That's a sweet deal! Was it a dealer or private party?
