Hey guys, looking at a couple of cars and wondering which one to go with. Hope I can get some good help.

1. Black on black GT Ltd manual tranny, high performance clutch, All Maintenance Recorded. new water pump, timing, belts, all fluids changed (diffs, tranny, coolant) during 120K mile maintenance. Minor paint chips and scuffs. Has a full suspension kit hes throwing in the deal (not installed) and 2 sets of tires w/ 90% tread left on them, summer and winter. Has 137k miles asking $8900. Clean title 2 owner car.
I test drove it and loved it. I just dont know if I can justify paying $8900 for it. Dent in a fender and scrapes on a rocker panel. Would this be worth $8900? I have links for both cars btw.

2. Silver w/ black interior GT Ltd manual tranny. Stock clutch also replaced, and all the maintenance done right at about 94k miles. All maintenance also recorded. has 100k miles on it, guy is asking $11k.
The difference w/ this one is that it is in near perfect condition. The guy is the most meticulous OCD guy I have ever met about keeping records, even down to GAS receipts. It was truly amazing. Also a 2 owner car no accidents/clean title.
Both cars on the test drive ran strong, everything felt tight, etc. Tires have about 5k miles on them for this one.

What I am trying to decide is if I should buy the silver one w/ 37k less miles, or get the black one for less and put $ into making it look as clean and perfect as the silver one. BB on the black on is about 8k as it stands, and $11k on the silver one.
The guy w/ the black one isnt willing to go lower than $8900 b/c he owes $9700 on it.

I'll stop blabbering. What do you all think? Which would be the better option? Lets hear some opinions....
