Quad 442, '94 Silverado 1500 or Cutty Supreme 3.4?
I found a Olds Calais Quad 442 5 speed on craigslist for 300 bucks. It needs work but its in excellent shape. I am aware of the head gasket problems but I am willing to change it if needed, since the Quad 4 is a amazing engine! Am I not mistaken, or does the Quad 442 have the W41 engine?
EDIT: It doesnt sound like it was started or prepared for the long term storage. Along with the known problems as you mentioned, a $300 car is exactly what it is. I wouldnt buy it because before you know it, your going to end up with a $3000 Car by the time repairs are done.
For $300 it'* not bad. And if you find a car that cheap, in most cases you already know it needs $$ and work, so there are not as many surprises.
It is a very good possibility I can buy it, since I can also afford petey'* 92 SSEi. THIS TIME I am going to look it over carefully before deciding to buy it, since it is a Gm and will be cheaper to fix than a BMW.
