That guy is selling it way too hard. He's playing the innocent card x100 and just telling buyers what they want to hear. "I never shift above 7500 rpms" if you're the kind of person who doesn't do that, then you aren't the kind of person who brags about not doing it. IMO.
But yeah buy it, gut it, and put a roll cage in. Wheels, tires, brakes, suspension, wing and aero... Drool. Weekend cars are the best!!
