Went and looked at some cars this weekend. One stood out. Could be had I am sure for about 2000
Good.
1. Engine Ran well
2. Transmission shifted perfect
3. Body was very straight
4. Was a euro
Bad
1. Front end felt loose
2. Interior needed work
3. One rust spot (in pic)

Looks cool
Expect that rust to be real nasty under the screen rubbers where you cant see if its that bad where you can
At least its a really good point to drive the price down
Make sure you check under doors and in the boot for rust as well if the rear windows that bad the door undersides may be Swiss cheese.. :D
Also look like its had a minor frontal tap ,that bumper is sitting to far in even for a Euro...

I was surprised to only see it there. I looked all over for more and could not spot any. All of the general places and nothing. Just that one spot.

Maybe at one point in its life it was sitting for a while and its arse was hanging out in the weather
Or if it has had a tow bar it may have been pulling boats....

Keep 'em coming DBMB- you are some kind of Euro-magnet.

Now here's a candidate for an SDC...anyone want the motor? One M117 is enough 'round here
