Should I or or shouldnt I?

Saw this ad on Craigslist, I should have extra tomorrow as Im supposed to be getting a bonus from my previous employer because they sold the apartment community I work at. Originally wanted to get an SVT to go crazy on with mods but for the price and hoping its a simple fix to get running, will be calling and looking at it tomorrow. Figured what the hell I could then have one for DD and other to do whatever I liked with.
Found other ads from same person same car

http://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/cto/3348489163.html

http://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/cto/3347136540.html

Any thoughts?

Not much of an ad to base any kind of decision on.

Hatchbacks in the U.S. never had the SOHC SPI, it will have the Zetec, or if 03 and above, it could have the Duratec.

If they dont have the resources to take and post pics theyre not getting money from me.

As to yah o nah its to to you. It can be a pandoras box. Can u pull engines and fix them? Are you skilled? Do you have extra cash on the side to get them running? Are u skilled car wise? If so go for it

I'd say wait for something to come along that's running. It will probably end up being cheaper in the long run, and then you don't have something in your garage torn apart, you have something that you can wheel around in!
