Found an SVT in decent shape...

Hey all, I just wanted to know if this was a good deal or not...I think 6K is WAY too much, but what should I realistically try to talk this guy down to?

http://worcester.craigslist.org/ctd/4191499780.html

It has 121K on it...afaik, a lot of the foci start to really choke around 150....

There are a few scratches in the paint, and it looks like there COULD be some rust on the side skirts, or perhaps someone is just lazy...I have not personally checked out the ride yet, but I plan to if others have input and suggestions for it. I will, of course, be changing out the pump/tbelt ASAP, and dumping synthetic into it.

Any ideas/suggestions/haggling I should do with this? I've been trying to hold out for a Screaming Yellow EAP SVT, but that doesn't seem too likely to happen...I'd rather black or liquid grey if I can't have my yellow, as silver is just eh, and red attracts too much attention from the fuzz (as does yellow, but yellow just looks soooooo nice).

In my opinion, that car is over priced, typical for small used car lots. I'd look at these first:

or even this:

Be patient, you will be glad you did.

They look decent...especially http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/ctd/4194187871.html ..the saleen looks a little beat on, though rare, and I would take that but would prefer black/yellow, and the silver ones are something I'd rather avoid (silver is just a cheap, ugly color, and really I've only ever seen it look good on Audis....)
