If TRULY in great shape with documented maintenance history I would not be afraid to pay in that price range. It is a little high for that mileage but where can you find SOM Firehawks?? especially in great shape?? Just make sure it is though. You don't want to sink thousands into it. You will never get your money back. Having said that, if you love it, buy it! You will probably keep it for years and years and even if you sell it for $8,000 some day, that is a lot of fun driving for very little average yearly cost. If I love a ride and it costs me $2,000 a year in the long haul, that is nothing in the grand scheme of things. A new car purchase sets you back a lot more than that. Good luck!
