That is a killer deal. And for someone who can source parts and do some labor, it should be quite an easy turn around.

Beaten up, you say? It's all kinds of fucked. Nice find, though; good project ahead of you but exactly why you'd do this, I'm confused.

mine is a 5 speed manual with LSD and it is not a sport design. From the pics so far it doesn't look like a SD but either way thats not a bad deal for an IS. I also like projects, this looks like fun.

I guess if your plans are to rice it out, it's a good deal. If you were fixing it to OEM specs, you paid about $2500 too much.
rice how so? im at the track like 2 - 3 times a month....
Oh i just read your posts and i see your just like the super negative type and im not the first person you called rice/ricer..its cool im going to have tons of fun with it..besides im sure you would say my other car is rice as well..
