no. you would have to change your name.
id tell the guy that he needs to go get it fixed and then you will pay him 1500 for it. Ya didnt give us much information to give ya a good idea on how great of a deal it is. If people want to sell you something that dont run. It prob wont run or they would have fixed it. Unless they have a good excuse. You really need to go look at it and speak to him in person to know.
