New car??

Post by battmann » Mon May 11, 2015 11:04 pm

here's the ad = http://buffalo.craigslist.org/cto/5013004032.html

i'm a sucker for 82-84 Trans Ams and this thing looks in amazing shape. needs a little work, but i think i have enough spare parts laying around to fix it up. gotta buy it right so i don't dip into my other car's project funds though. i know i could make a killing parting it out, but it's really in too good of shape to do that. maybe i'll drive it for awhile and sell it. i don't know.
what do you guys think??

Looks like a good deal from what I saw in the ad and seems like a good price.If you already have what it needs ,like you said,drive it then flip it and make money.

Clint, Maybe drive it for the summer and try selling it before winter. Then you would at least have a cruiser for the summer.

no dice on the trans am. car actually looked worse in person. couldn't get the guy to go lower than $2000. the car just isn't worth what he's asking with all the issues it has. eventually he'll have to move on the price or it will just sit there. oh well. i don't really need any other projects right now so maybe it's for the best.

Sorry Clint. It would have been cool but it just wasn't meant to be. There's a better deal out there.

Sometimes it's better to just walk away. I'm sure with everything you saw, there probably was still some hidden problems too.
