Most techs here would be like me and say Run don't walk away, and a performance car would make it even more so.

I once purchased a Fiero GT that had a rebuilt title. Great car and better deal. I think it just depends on the quality of the rebuild. If it checks out by a mechanic you trust...go for it.
