Look Outside
Automatic + Sports car = no way

But seems like a decent deal.

Do you know anything about the previous owner? The automatic + intake + aftermarket exhaust (that tip can't be stock!) just screams "driven hard by a 16 y.o." The headlights appear to be aftermarket too (lack of yellow in the corner reflector), which isn't always bad but many of the ebay types have a horrible illumination pattern.

Auto and 3.8L will be a dog. If you do buy it, put some 4.10's in it with a locker.

My brother bought the same, exact one last year with 10k miles more than the one you're considering. Still drives it.

It has a lot of power for a small V6.

Ok, as long as you know its history it's a bit safer. When buying blind you have to assume the worst! It should be fine - the engine and trans are damn near bullet proof. I assume you're not looking for max performance or you would have been looking at v8 models; the v6 is plenty peppy for regular driving.

Oh thats not bad, that part is very cheap......................... :P

I have the same thing on my older camaro, not worth the cost to fix for how much it leaks(very little)
