The rust is pretty bad.... but I talked to the guy all it needs is the clutch which he has which he will include for 300, I could knock this out in a day.

Not even, I have the camry.... It would be something fun to just beat the hell out and get good mpg.

I would tentatively say no. Because you can't drive it and the rust. BUT if it has un broken c-pillar trim and a decent interior you could sell parts off of it and get your money back. Check to see if it has a rear sway bar too. Too bad it has those steel wheels those aren't worth shipping.

The chances that the only thing wrong with it is the clutch are pretty low. I bet the suspension is worn out, cooling system is full of rust, engine leaks oil etc etc.

unfortunatly we do, if it is pass its due date it will have to be bondod together so there are no holes in the body and it shall pass.

Luckly where I live there are no emissions... atleast in my county of PA.


ouch on the rust of course, but I could beat the hell out of this car for a couple of months then turn around and sell it... hopefully he still has everything from the tranny being dropped.

Buy it, make it run, and play Dukes of Hazard.

No, cause everything you buy gets sold again or parted out.

You're supposed to play King and take his MR2 away from him after he buys it.
Call it "payment for using the glory that is CelicaTech".

the rust is nastey, granted, but if it runs right with a new clutch...then maybe itd be decent enough. The thing that Id be worried about is the underbody if you plan on beatin it around. If its not just the quarters, then when dogging it that thing could lose its structure and well...bad things.

Its a tough call, that rust that we see is fixable (even if most dont know how to deal with it). But if its getting crunchy underneath and you just want to dog the car I'd take its structure into consideration
