Possibly buying a 93 YJ

I found a 93 with 100k miles on it. Looks really good. No rust, top is in good shape, ac works etc. The guy said it has always ran strong but now it won't start. He's asking $1500. Would you buy it? Or stay away from it?

Oh yeah...its a 4cyl 5sp

Sounds like a fair deal. I have one real similar that I paid $200 for but it sat for six years. I got it running but the motor had serious blow by. I got sick of all that so now I am in the process of changing the motor. I will have well under a grand into the whole thing, including the cost of the Jeep but I have quite a bit of time into it. As long as the motor doesn't need to be replaced I'd say it's a really good deal based on the crap I see for sale around here.

It sold before I was able to go check it out. So the search continues!
