By next year, your car will not depreciate $2000...
The fact that it's a ZHP that you found for under $9000 is impressive enough. Assuming it's well maintained, you can easily sell it again to the right person looking for that car.
Before you drive it, I'd consider restoring that thing to the best shape possible. I.e, repairing/replacing mechanical parts, as well as cosmetics such as a good buffing + paint correction etc.
