Chance to get '75 2002 for $1500....should i do it?

Car runs, isnt rusted out or anything, never been restored, though the guy does have a decent amount of money invested into it. I don't need it, but figure it could be good project to shine up and sell or keep.... Is this the steal that I think it is?

assuming blowing 1500 on a car you dont need wont hurt you financially in any way, buy it. not only is that car legendary it also looks like a fun car just to drive around in.

Buy it and restore it!

I mean I'm all for preserving originality, but damn, that's supposedly one of the most fun cars to drive. I heard that a recommended mod is upgrading the brakes.

It is a steal if it is drivable and not rusted out. If it is a USA model then replace the bumpers with the '73 or earlier version. I miss my '73 2002.

$1,500? Really...hmmm...maybe I should get one. Jeez....

EDIT: Keep in mind our perspective...most of us guys on these forums spend that much money on rims alone...let alone a car...

I would say yes, but I couldn't while knowing I could have done the same to an e30.
