You should be cautious of the sitting for 2 years part. Have a mechanic go over the car top to bottom and get a list of things to address right away before you start driving it full time. Price is fair, but talk them down, once you know what the car will need, such as brakes or tires, hoses, etc.

Thanks for the info. We ended up buying it. It is solid as a rock, the gentleman took very good care of everything!
