Why would you spend money on a car like that? If it was spray painted, it might be hiding something. Just wondering...

indeed , chance's are it has had body work done in the past and some night after getting drunk they just decided it was a good idea to spray can the car with no prep work , granted it could be just because that's what they had , but i'd take a close look at the car before buying it , as for removing the paint ..... as far i know of you can use a paint stripper , or sand it off , either way you probably won't beable to save the old paint and have it look decent , just my 2 cents
