Bought my 97 SOHC for $100 with a bad alternator. No rust anywhere, good paint except for 3 spots and the motor runs great.

My 95 NYG ACR Coupe cost me $800. It just needed an intake manifold. I've put lots more in it since, of course, hehe.

And my 96 Black SOHC ATX Coupe was $100. Needed nothing. I got a smoking deal. Kid I bought it from said it needed a HG......but as far as I know, its fine. I've put like 500 miles on it, and all the fluids are at the proper levels, and colors. Oh well.

I bought mine from a friend for €1000,- with 199k km on the counter.

leaking head gasket
worn out brakes front + back
Strut bobbles worn out
shocks worn out
pealing of paint
etc etc...

I spended like €3000,- / €4000,- in the past 2 years to repair everything that was fucked at that point..
And now it is in pretty good condition.. except for the fuel pump issue...
