Default 2001 Subaru RS

Hey, I'm looking at a 2001 Subaru RS, has about ~85,000 miles on it. Great interior, clean engine, it's got some body defects, but the seller said it would be covered upon purchase. The downfall is, he keeps telling me he won't go lower than 10,000 for it, and NADA value for this car never appears more than 8,500. So technically it's rediculous...however it's the cleanest one in anchorage, so I'd like to pick it up. Does anyone have any ideas for how I can talk this schmuck from trying to rip me off of a car because they got ripped buying it?

2001 Subaru 2.5L RS
Alloy wheels
Stock ( Even stereo )
85,000 miles
2 owners
5-speed manual

VIN: JF1GM67521G400518

He printed a NADA value using the vin, but refused to let me see the computer screen, or where he got the printout from. But his quote said "9,250" or so, so when I checked it myself at my residence, it showed the paper probably was a handmade printout and not an official NADA estimate. I'd appreciate if anyone has a NADA subscription to please check that 2x and see if this guy tried to scam me, otherwise I'm going to report his company to the BBB =\

I don't know if anything else helps, but I want to pick this up before someone else comes along and rips themselves off and gets it before me. I'd appreciate any help.

10k was a good price about 2 years ago.

I say you let this one go and find something priced more reasonably. If I was looking, I'd try to find something lower 48 and ship/drive it up. Somewhere in the south without salted roads.

I was thinking that as well, and I found a few in Anchorage. I want to know if Knik Tow and Wreck has a few junked ones cause there's a guy selling a red RS in Anchorage for 4,500, and his just needs 2 new fenders, a bumper, fog lights, and the spoiler replaced + painted. I figured by the time it was all repaired and painted, it would have exceeded the price I was aiming for originally anyway. Plus the clutch is, "odd"...

Actually it's at United Auto Sales. The reputation there is terrible, but I don't care for the dealer, I just want the car =\
