    I aim to get a nice, satisfying specimen with low miles for less than $20k.

    I see more on the West Coast, but that’s too far for me.

    Even if I saw what looked like a perfect car, there’s no way I’d travel out just to inspect, so there’d be no way to confirm it as such.

    Do I detect a bit of buyer’s remorse? ; )

    It’s funny how everybody thinks the prices of the things we’re buying are too high, but the price for what we’re selling (typically, our labor) is too low. With the government giving away trillions, just wait...

    How about talking on the phone to the seller, getting a measure of his honesty, and having him take it to a mechanic you chose for a PPI before committing to buy it, contingent upon you flying out and seeing it? I've purchase 5-6 cars in this exact way and then drove them back, all without incidents beyond what one should expect from older and/or high mileage cars. And I've enjoyed each experience immensely.

    Agree, been monitoring CL LA and Surrounding areas for years and zhp's are not as abundant as before. And the ones in CL now are all beat up and abused.

    It's a shame to see people neglect and abuse these cars even if they are on the most part high mileage cars these days. These cars deserve better in my opinion...

    Maybe, the right car would induce me to do such a thing, but you’re a braver man than I.
