powerm - thanks for the info....I'll be sure to look for the wide tires and lowered suspension...*laff*....seriously, appreciate the input, I can tell the diff if I see two side by side, but when its just one its hard for me to tell. Just inexperience.

Silver4evr - thanks for the details, not sure I'll be able to tell the suspension calibration when I'm at the dealer/auction, but I appreciate the details. the link was good for additional background info. I think carfax may be my best bet when I'm there....good to work for a company that gives me an aircard so I can pull up the carfax in front of the dealer/owner to double check what he's tellin me.

I thought after I turned 40 and was successful I'd lose the buyer's remorse, but this is almost as hard as the first car I bought....a lifted '76 Datsun pickup....oh wait, that was a debacle too.....

appreciate the help!
