I think if the quarters are bowed, its junk. Not sure what you have into it, but I can't imagine it being fixable for cheap. I think the broken rear window alone might be worth more than the car.... no offense.

See if the guy that hit you will pay out of pocket. An insurance company will give you $500 and say the car is totaled.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

God almighty. I haven't chirped in on this forum for a while, but some of you might remember my name.

Anyways dude, i don't know what you're thinking, but both of those were nightmares from the start. I know a fair share about cars (I own a jeep myself, and frequently work on it and make it better), and i wouldn't of bought either of those. Just to let you know the point of a "project car" is to fix it yourself. That doesn't mean bring it to a mechanic and spend 5x what you spent on the car for the engine alone. You need to FIX IT YOURSELF. That's the fun in it, you learn how to rebuild the engine, and you have fun along the way. I'm not "busting on you" in anyway, i'm just simple saying do not spend that much money on that car.

Get a jeep, and work on that. Spare parts are cheap and readily available, and they go just about anywhere.

Decided I'd see if I'd keep my next car for a while before updating.

So, about a week after I bought the rice box, some idiot made a left in front of me when I had no chance to slow down. Everyone is fine. My airbag deployed, but I did not need it. His insurance covered everything, as he was at fault. Have some funny pics. 



Kept the car, sold it for parts. Engine still ran.

So about 2 weeks after the accident, I bought this for $1900.









No tears or rips on the seats.

Reads 184,581 (reads about 197,xxx at this point. sorry for the camera phone pics)

Cargo cover.

No rips/tears and only minor blemishes

Sun roof works perfectly.

B18A1 Bay needs a good cleaning.
