    Default Should I buy?

    Hey guys I found a 1994 Civic that looks to be a Si, you can never know now days. Anyway it's for sale for $ 2500 With some issues, like cracked windshield and buckling around the sunroof, no cat, and the vin number looks like it was installed backwards, should the vin number under the windshild be readable from the outside upsidedown?
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    The key questions are why is the windshield cracked, the roof buckled and why was the VIN plate removed and reinstalled incorrectly?

    Sometimes cars get hit on a corner so hard they buckle the roof, which also might explain the windshield. Usually it's a front corner. Is it a salvage title? If it was hit hard enough and not repaired properly, the suspension pickup points could be way off, which is something you don't want in a street car or track car.

    The VIN plate is supposed to be oriented to be read right side up, left-to-right standing outside the car looking through the windshield. Does the VIN match the one stamped on the firewall?

    Seems to me you could find a virgin 1994 Civic Si for $2500 elsewhere, if you look hard enough.
