To buy or not to buy?

98 trans am, 116,00 miles. Runs and drives good. 5995 at a gmc stealership. What do you think? I might buy it in the morning...

Agreed. I see rust in the first photo and i wouldnt spend over 4k on it. 6k is a bit much considering Age, and amount of owners

IMO= im my opinion
Front bumper has been replaced obviously. Major paint differential. Id pull a carfax and see if its clear. Get under it and check the frame. Plus, those are Camaro rims xD check the VIN and make sure it wasnt a conversion. maybe 4k

Car fax is clean besides 4 owners, I was wondering about the rims also. Frame looked to be in pretty good shape for a Michigan car. How do I tell if it's a conversion and what do you mean by that?

Check the vin. if you see the 8th digit is a K then it was a v6. if not then its OEM v8. and yes camaro rims. they are the mid tear base t top rims.
