What can I say, that’d be a great blocker car.


#5131

i mean, i’d take it to a demolition derby


#5132

#5133

Found a van:


#5134

i’m saying i want to intentinally destroy it not just kinda rough it up.

Look at it, it needs put out of its misery via a blown radiator and a siezed engine.


#5135

+


#5136

Allot of cheap stuff on craiglist.


#5137

Ye, 4.3 buddies.

I was thinking about this one, but it need work. $300 though.

Oh, it’s kinda far away from you though.


#5138

LOL that’s not actually that far.

Only about an hour away.

(I’m in northern part of SD)


#5139

Well it’s the right van for an A-Team van.

Hop to. Lol


#5140

ugh, I’ve got a feeling it needs a lot of work to get running.


#5141

Probably just a tune-up, and maybe a carb. Those things are dead simple, and the turbo 350/400 autos are bullet proof with stock power. Not even running them out of trans fluid kills them.

However it’s a 91 so it might have EFI. I don’t know anything about those systems because none of the old Chevy EFIs I’ve been around have given us any issues.


#5142

There is the lemons series

But like you said used car prices are insanely inflated in cali


#5143

HOL UP HOL UP

Is that a ROCK IN THE DASHBOARD?!


#5144

Could always find a shop willing to take a bribe lol, thats what i did with my jeep


#5145

that’s what I meant

I’ve got a friend with a 500hp GTI, a friend with a V8 E30, and a friend with a volvo s60 making too much power.


#5146

What does it run you? I paid $250 for a guy to throw the sniffer in a little acura


#5147

$120, all in on an OBD2 car. Friends and family discount.


#5148

I was going to sell my impreza as is (in need of repair) but looking at the market that’s a dumb idea. I see them still going for $6-8k, would probably value mine around 5 if i fixed it up which isn’t fucking bad.

I don’t know why i checked kbb but it valued mine at like 2.5k private party


#5149

KBB isn’t accurate for enthusiast cars. It’s got my miata at 2.5k, but going rate is about 3500-4500.
