    Plus no pictures of the engine bay. - What legit person spends so much time on the article and semi-pro pictures without showing the engine bay. Very suspect.

    The ad also states that the engine's almost had a complete rebuild recently so why no photos showing it off? I can understand the hesitance of letting someone test drive if you think they're just a tire kicker, but if someone was dead serious and could prove they had the cash then you've got to give them the opportunity to test it on the road first. It almost seems like there might be engine issues that the seller doesn't want the potential buyer to pick up on.

    That's crazy. You never buy a car, especially a used one, without driving it first. Even if the car looks mechanically sound, there is so much more you can tell about the car by driving it, throttle response, brakes, gear shifts, any irregularities in the way the engine sounds. Driving is a car's purpose, therefore not being able to drive it first is like a sales assistant in a clothing store saying you can't try on anything before you buy it. I can understand that it's an NSX and not your everyday, run-of-the-mill Honda/Acura but to flat out deny a test drive just raises alarm bells.

    Not so sure this would be my choice if buying an NSX. However, I'm glad to see the 90's Japanese cars starting to be considered as classics. This was Japan's greatest era in my opinion.

    No test driving, but, for some reason, it's no problem to hire the car.

    Pay for a test drive? I'll pass. This car is not that rare...

    Where's the standard airbag steering wheel? Was it in a front end collision?
