I have a push lawn mower with a B&S engine 123K02-0185-E1. It is 13 years old but I maintain it very well. Starts right up when cold. And it runs fine. However I have an awful time starting it again when it's hot. Sometimes takes 5 or 10 minutes

I might be inclined to pay that if it hasn't been messed with. Body kits and matte paint weren't necessary to make this car a stunner. Kinda hurts my heart a little to see one modified like this.

If you can handle fixing things yourself, it's a fun little car. Plus it's something you can toy around with for a few years and get back what you paid for it.
