The V8's take a lot of attention when the milage gets up there. For $1000, I would buy it, fix it, and sell it......

Dont worry about the mileage, V8's are bullet proof so to speak 140,000 just run in !!

You european fellas didn't have the nikasil issues....so if it's a UK 540, its a good buy....if it's US spec, be aware of gremlins.

coolvegase34 is an unknown quantity at this point
any car that runs is worth a thousand, It doesn't matter what it is. If it doesn't have the service records and a clean carfax, forget about it.
