I'd be careful a running 98 for that cheap? Tells me it has a lot of issues. I just picked up a 95 a month or so ago for the same thing. I deliver for dominos.

the thing looks like it has a lazy eye on the left picture...must have been hit there. hesitation could be as simple as a vacuum line that is cracked...mine was like that. Lady gave the vehicle to me and said if I can get it running, it was mine.
