new guy, new to mini

Hi all, name is zak. I actually dont own a mini yet. Test driven a few. I have found a early 2000 mini (I think, dont know what year yet) that they claim has either a blown head gasket or a warped head. They want 1200 dollars for it. Did not know if that is a decent price for a mini that needs motor work. Body looks straight and interior is good.

Hey Zak My name Is Zakk, It would be a very decent buy. IF its warped head some serious tuning would be needed. Under $2000 i would imagine, If its only a head gasket you can snag a full gasket kit for about $250-$300. Which would make it a steal. Any leads on how many miles on the clock or other issues it may have?
