What Do You Think? Is This A Good Deal

IS THIS A GOOD DEAL ?? i am thinking of buying this truck for appx 5000.00

1985 V8 Chevrolet S10 Pickup.This truck is the cleanest S10 you will ever find anywhere. This is an all out strip drag truck. It has a 350 motor, 350 trans, and a ford 9''. It is painted flat black. I have listed the full specs below. It is 100% complete, all parts have been professionally installed, and it is ready to race. This is a turnkey drag truck. It needs absolutely nothing, just gas and an experienced driver. This truck is NOT for someone who does not have any experience racing or driving. It is extremely fast. This truck ran 6.30 in the 1/8 mile the first time out right off the trailer. It needs to be fine tuned to a driver and it will run faster. It runs on 110 octane because it is 12.5-1 compression. It has a 150 shot of nitrous. It will run on 93 octane but will spark knock. I currently have it registered and tagged here in fort myers and drive it on the street. Although it is not very streetable. Cannot be driven in the rain, does not have wipers, horn, turn signals, and probably has other things that you could get pulled over for. So check your local laws first. This has been my project for the past year and all work has been done in that time. Not to mention the large amount of time it took. The frame has been completely stripped and painted. Evey nut or bolt that is not needed has been removed. It has been converted to manual steering and manual brakes. All the body work was done before it was painted. Everything is straight. I am selling because i am moving and cannot afford to bring it with me. I have the title, it is clear and ready to be transfered.
