IMO pictures are definitely the key. Ask the seller for photos of everything. It helps to have a Photobucket, or some other photo hosting) account. It's a lot easier than emailing them.

It may also help to let the seller know that you need to a long way to inspect that car, and that you expect him or her to give you an accurate and honest description. If you travel all that way to inspect the car and it's not what you expected you may more than a little upset.

Here are two questions I like to ask:
- Will the car make a 2000 mile trip to (wherever)? It doesn't need to be to where you live, just a long way from the seller's home.
- If you were to keep the car what would you do to it?

I'm sure the other members of this site have questions they like to ask.
