    My eyes are too tired tonight to read much, but it looks a nice one, do not forget to check for rust in the rear wheel arches

    Looks like a clean ride, but the most important thing is the history of the vehicle considering its age. This car's generation is prone to rust and this portends that onerous repair bills will ensue if the car is not carefully inspected before purchase. Some sellers, I say some sellers get rid of derelict cars under a guise whereby they spend too much time/money making the exterior of the car so attractive that the main operative system that makes the car function is almost forgotten.

    Most people fall under this trap because they buy cars for the looks and get carried away with excitement, in the process they forget to look at every corner of the vehicle to spot potential money pitfalls. I would advice he goes with his eyes wide open or if possible go with a qualified professional technician to check out the car and I strongly believe that if he does his research properly, it will lead inexorably to a beautiful car ownership experience in the long term. :)
