You never know what you can find for $2000 I paid that for mine, the guy needed cash. He paid $4500 for it less than two months ago. New paint job new floors no rust/rot anywhere runs great. Just saying they are out there if you are patient and look long enough you can find some good deals. Not to sound like a vulture but with this economy you can find some desparate people that need money.
I would take an unpleasant truth over a comfortable false hood. You learn nothing from lies, whether someone else is telling them to you, or you are telling them to yourself.
