I got a mustang like that one time. It was an 02 model with a V6. The girl I purchased it from said the shop told her it would cost like 1.5k to fix and she did not want to full with it and got another car. Well I went and check it out and purchased it. I replaced 2 wheel bearings, brake pads, Coil Pack, wires, plugs and had to weld up the exhaust manifolds. In total I had 2.8k tied up in the car. I drove it for 1 year and traded it even to a person for a full size GMC Pickup.
I have never been able to score a motorcycle like that but I have had some luck with vehicles.
