Been a Roady wagon on the side of the road next town over for a year or so, ive looked at it twice, frontal damage minor, some rust, other than that not a bad car.
I met the owner today, 230k miles, cosmetic front end damage, and the tranny dumped all its fluid on the ground. He told me his boy hit a car and his insurance co couldn't find parts to fix it so he just parked it. New tires with 800 miles on them, said it runs like a dream.
I asked if hed sell it, he said yes for repair only, won't sell it to anyone for parts. I said well id fix it and either run it or sell it.
Anyway, he wants $1000 for it, way outta my budget, and i'm not sure its worth it. I told him if he wanted to fix it i would be glad to sell him some parts on the cheap from one of my parts cars, and he could find a tranny pretty cheap somewhere. I think he'll take me up on it, sounds like he really loves the car.
Just thought if pass on my bbody for the day story.
