I have seen a few. And they are legit. Not too easy to come by though and they usually have cosmetic issues which is okay with me.

In that price range your lookin at high miles, ~150,000.
Most likely whoever has or had the car drove it hard and with alot of miles it really needs to be checked over thoroughly. If you find one at or below 120,000miles I think you would make out for 5k, assuming the interior isn't thrashed and paint is okay. the longer you wait the better your odds.

Not super far away. But is there a difference between 96-97 & 98? I heard 98 were significantly better
