No records. No good. Realize your are buying a car that needs to have been kept in top shape. These cars have needs and they cannot be overlooked if you intend on keeping the car for awhile. Belts are a start... fluids? Cooling system flush? Brake fluid flush and bleeding? Trans oil? and of course how far gone is the clutch? I've had cars in which the previous owner had no clue how to drive a stick and the clutch was toasted. Me, I could make a clutch last in my 911s for 70K miles and more. CA car is good. Not a "rust belt" car. Should be really clean underneath and all electrical connections will probably be in great shape which is a real plus for these cars. I looked at a car in PA that was a mess. Rust on every nut and bolt under the car. I was lucky to find my car in CA with the previous owners in Nevada and Arizona. Big plus for me. Of course you will need to replace 9 year old tires. Unsafe and your traction will me almost nil. Rubber gets old and it gets hard. Buying a "used" car is a series of trade offs. You usually have to choose what you are comfortable accepting. A PPI can be a security blanket, but to be sure it cannot uncover events yet to happen that are not perceptible at the time of the inspection. All the best in your search. Enjoy the hunt.
