That's good. Crawl around under it and make sure nothing leaking from the engine/tranny, shocks, etc. Assuming everything is clean/dry, it's a good find for the price.

But...with what's already parked in your garage, will you drive this car enough to make the carrying cost worthwhile? For me the answer would probably be no, regardless of how good a deal it is.
