Well, I've had it for a week, and put some miles on it. Starts, runs and drives really well - it's nice a quiet, rides good, everything is nice and tight minus one strut bushing out back. The tires are really good - I'll have to check the date code but they are a non-issue at this point. The hail damage is like invisible in the pictures, but it's pretty obvious when you walk up to it - not a big detractor, but it's definitely gonna hurt resale value.

I think if I can get it for like $3,000 I think it's worth that. The A/C probably will take a recharge fine, the bushing in the rear is not a big deal at this point, and the check engine light for oil pressure is either a bad sensor or wiring - that'll be the most expensive diagnosis/repair. If I can get 75k out of it over the next 3-4 years, which I think is totally plausible, then I'd be pretty happy with having only laid out $3k to start with. I agree it's more trouble than it's worth to buy, fix, and resell - the condition just isn't there to make any bank. Thanks for looking guys - anybody else with an opinion lets hear it!
