    painted wheels, headlights, and side markers are all "aftermarket" but none of those hurt anything. How many miles? Price?

    miles are pretty high, i would get it looked at for sure. Compression, leakdown, overall look etc

    Make a deal that if it passes a compression test you'll buy it and pay for the compression test or whatnot.

    so it turns out that its not all stock because i found an ad in a Philadelphia craigslist listing with the same car and a list of things done to the car.

    http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/cto/1786851644.html

    it says something about a ticking when its in reverse obviously its not good but does anyone know what it could be or how much it could cost?
