Good news, everyone!
I managed to work out a deal for this car. If everything goes according to plan, I'm going to pick it up on Saturday.
Here's the pictures from the ad (we had a snowstorm Friday, I had to dig the car out to take a good look at it and didn't snap any pictures):

He still has the original fenders, which apparently started to rot at the bottom. The rocker panels come with the car and will have to be installed later. The rockers rotted, predictably, under the plastic trim in front of the rear wheels. Everything is still there in the car, the interior is mint. He has the 4WS centrecaps for it. The only options this car doesn't have are the digital cluster (which I have) and the AAS (which I'm not too worried about).
Now for the important bit:
He told me that the 4WS system never worked since he's owned the car. It started leaking and supposedly the PS line for the rear rack was disconnected. He told me the car was originally from Alberta, and judging by the plate on it it was first registered here in NB in 94-95 (my 95 EGT's plate is only a few numbers off).
Here's hoping the 4WS system is an easy fix!
