Hey. Not to discourage you but it's a 96 and those are a dime a dozen. Rust is always a bad thing to deal with. If its really bad I would pass up on it especially because of the rust. if it were say a second gen then yeah i would jump on it. maybe look for a clean bodied car and if it has a bad engine u can custom build it. thats just my take. not that fourth gens are bad or anything but there are too many out there to stick to one. the rust is always a huge no no for me, its a cancer that always lays dormant if not completely removed.

Aside from a couple spots it looks to be in pretty good shape with minimal rust and the price of $400 seems fair but it has been sitting the last 4-5 years. Just wanted to get some opinions on whether I should buy it for $400 or walk away? Posting some pics below.
