If the car is mechanically good, that's seems like a smoking deal @ 30k.

Everytime I see deals like this I start thinking: "Jeez I overpaid for my '79."

But then I ask myself: "What are the chances that you buy this car for 30k and it needs nothing." Odds are that this car needs some TLC, even though it looks very clean. The fact that the owner says it has a V-6 and call it the "last of the air cooled models" shows that its not an enthusiast owned car. You've proven that further by inquiring about service history.

Please let us know how it goes...maybe you'll hit the jackpot on this one. I will be jealous though (have to keep telling myself that I like the look of the impact bumper models better).
