Hemi? Forged internals? Suzuki engine? I don't think so.

Unless it's had the engine rebuilt, or it's all easy highway miles, it's about done.

You're already getting equal to or better gas mileage than it's rated...so unless you are looking to modify it in to an extreme MPG machine, I say pass...

OTOH...I love these things, easy to work on, fun to drive...if insurance for a second vehicle is cheap, and you want a toy, then by all means.

If you get it and need hard to find parts, let me know ASAP.
