"Recently rebuilt" could mean almost anything.  I'd get details.

Primer can hide a lot.  And Houston is next to the salty Gulf.  Not sure they don't have rust problems too.

Yeah no doubt. There's only so much you can get from pictures and talking to the owner, which is why I was wondering if a forum member had seen it in person, and if so, what their opinion is.

In the first pic you can see what looks to be body filler near the front of the passenger door. Looks like it is also missing the chrome around the little mini window on the passenger side. But for what I'm looking for, those aren't huge issues.

It does have a viper alarm, that's nice. Getting a Z that already has one is a good find, cuz iirc they're about 1k to install.
I don't want my car getting stolen, so I don't mind spending 1k on a viper alarm. Sure helps if it's already there.

I think he's priced high. Looks like there's a fair amount of surface rust (and probably more) on the hatch and door jams, who knows where else. Real sloppy looking job on the primer; even sprayed over the door handle, lock and mirror. Who does that and why? If you're gonna take on a big project (which this looks like), you could probably find something cheaper.
