I'll be honest, I am not a fan of how many miles it has but as long as it sounds good and isn't rough then it should be ok. Just keep up with matinence and it should be ok.

I got my 94 5.2l for 6,000 in really good shape (had 86,000 miles on it). With the way gas prices are it shouldn't be to hard to find a good deal on a V8.

swing for under four grand and if you really like it bid a little more

i wouldnt go over 5500 for it even if it has all the goodies

if it doesnt have many options id say dont go over 4500

I agree with fox, I wouldn't go over 4500 if its a base model without the goodies. Also remember that with an older car you have to have a "repairs" budget. The way I figure it, the less you spend on the car, the more you will probably have to spend on repairs and new parts.

Ditto... $45 would be a reasonable price.. $4000 would be better...


If it where a fully loaded limited in perfect shape Maybe 5..

I bought my 97 fully loaded last spring for $3500 and no problems in 10k miles sense then. Probably better then average deal, so $4000 is about right if it runs good, no vibration, tranny shift good.

Just a question, why are you going from a fully loaded 97 all the way back to a 93?

as for the lift budget boost is where they all start but i skipped that step and went to 3.5 took longer to save up but its worth it In my opinion
