Dude seriously, did you just walk up to this guy.. and hand him cash, and drive off with the car without actually inspecting it first?

Sell it and buy something in better condition! Jeez man! J/K. :)

If your not inclined to do body work, i would take it a body shop.. and have a pro take a look at it. They would be able to give you much better advice.

I think.. and this is just what i think... You should take this experience and learn from it. Sell the car, and find something in better condition. If you have any amount of knowledge, and time to work on the car.. then keep it, because you'll learn even more working on it. But, if you just want a mustang to drive, and get back and forth.. sell this one, and find another one.

Trust me man, mustangs are like women... there are TONS of them out there. This is just another flavor of the week... thats blunt, but you understand. You have to really be honest with yourself, and be realistic. Your only what... 18, 19? You probably dont make a heck of a lot of money.. you'd be much better off finding a car that has little to no problems, and just having fun with the car. Working on a car all the damn time just to keep it up to par is a pain in the ass, especially when your young, and have very little money. This is just my opinion though.

It really depends. First, get some good pictures of the car. Take pictures of everything you can think of. Describe the car to the best of your capability.. and we'll give you an idea.
