I feel 'had'* of course, first time I've ever bought anything bigger than a bread box on the net and I got taken.
Ton of money later I'll update this.
ps on the bright side, the interior is like new, the paint decent, the original mats immaculate, came with a fitted SVX cover, which I like, and an SVX bra, which I detest. Giving that away to whoever wants it.
buyer beware eh?
*'had' as in, well you know, taken, fleeced, rogered.
UPDATE 8/6/14
New shocks/struts, O2 sensors, transfer case solenoids/valves, drive shaft and it runs fine, but boy its a bear keeping a black car clean
