It'll clean up well. You seem passionate enough to get it there.
In regards to the last thread, I looked into that suspension setup you suggested and they end up coming to around $2000 for a brand that has no presence here. My husband has the final say of our finances, and he'd prefer I get something else, even if it costs more. Will see how it goes.
Search "how to buy a used car" on youtube. Scotty Kilmer and Chrisfix made good videos on it. You can spend as little as $3000 for a used beater car that's reliable.
walk around the car. look for mismatched paint, uneven panel gaps, missing trim, big dents, chips in the paint, etc. check the brake pads for wear, check the tires
get in the car. make sure everything works from the mirrors to the radio to the sunroof to the lights to the power seats
start up the car. make sure it starts up immediately. no hesitation, no squealing, no weird vibration, nothing
drive the car. does the clutch engage perfectly, do the brakes feel good, is there minimal hesitation from the throttle, does the gear linkage feel direct. is there wheel shake at 60+ mph, when you brake does the steering wheel shudder, etc.
open the hood. is the air filter clean, is the oil clean, are the belts worn, are the motor mounts fucked, etc.
you can't tell a 'bad' car from a 'good' car without a lot of investigation.
This is all really good advice.
In addition to is the oil clean, just check the level. If it isn't where it should be, the seller is retarded. Someone with some intelligence would top off oil before trying to sell it
Also to get less specific, examine overall car symmetry
But in general follow this post, it's good if you aren't technical.
