Default HEY HEY HEY....look at what I found....SHOULD I BUY IT???

yes yes.....














It has a good transmission.....

It starts but makes A LOUD CLAPPING KNOCKING NOISE. REALLY REALLY LOUD THAT CAPITAL LETTERS AND BOLD CANNOT SAY HOW LOUD IT IS.

I think it is a lower noise from the bottom of the engine.


Should I buy it they want $150. It has good headlights and a smashed driver side taillight.

I am REALLY pissed off I sold my 87 olds since it had a PERFECT RUNNING engine. Is there $150 of parts there (online of course) in that car??? the headlights look like they are brand new.


To buy or not to buy????

Lucky bastard. I would buy it for $150. You can probably make more then that parting it out if it isn't road worthy anymore. For me personally, I would buy it as a learning car and to test stuff on it before I try on my good Bonne.

Sounds like rod knock.





It'll be a bit of a significant untertaking to get at it, you may be looking at a new engine or a rebuild.
