    i bought my 97 in January with 38k miles and i love it. i honestly think that with 63 k miles you should be fine but i would work on the price a little if he will come down. my buddy has a 96 and he has run it extrememly hard and it now has 180k miles on it and he has only done basic maintenance. never had any transmission problems or anything.

    I would say 10 for that car is reasonable from a dealer, it looks to be in good shape.
    (personally would lose the stripes) Its all about what you want, and 68 thousand miles for a 97 isn't too bad either. Now i bought my car with 68 thousand, and had to change the clutch, plugs, wires, ball joints *and all the normal stuff* only paid 8 for mine here in flrorida and not from a dealer. But as stated 100 times above, you could go all day hearing stories of people finding good deals etc, but i say as long as you feel good about it it don't matter.
