The key to finding the right one is patience. I was on the same search 9 months ago and was tempted to buy one out of state many times. In the end I found one right here in Houston which was driven by an elderly lady, impeccably maintained (by my own mechanic no less), did not have ASR, and had covered only 75k miles. They had already replaced the wiring harnesses, evaporator, rebuilt the transmission, rebuilt the front end, replaced the cam oilers, resealed the power steering pump, and lots of smaller items before I bought the car.
Wait for the right one; you'll be glad you did. Buy the best condition example you can. The joy of driving a low mileage well maintained car is exponentially greater than that of a neglected one.
