Default Good Deal?

94 SSEi With 85K spotless from the trunk forwrad (got rearended at 50 MPH) Still drives perfectly fine. Friends mom only wants $500 for the car to disappear no strings attached. Good deal or no? I think so?

Anyone gonna want some shipable body parts? Don't know what I'm gonna keep out of it yet?

Sounds good. However, you're engine runs strong. It idles like crap but runs strong. Don't just swap because it has lower mileage. My grandma'* 87 Bonney had 39 K on it when she bought it for $5400 in 1999. That car ran like crap from day 1. I'd just swap everything BUT the engine and tranny. Especially the tranny since its new. Definatly swap out the suspention since thats giving you the trouble.

Ya that'* about the idea I was having....I just got off the horn with Martin (OlBlueEyesBonne) and he'* got first dibs on front body parts. But I'm taking the whole suspension off this car and swapping it into mine. More or less gonna just unbolt everything from the car, and try and do it as one whole assembly and drop the struts and all down and then bolt it up into my car. The car is still driveable so I will put her through her paces and see how strong she runs. Doubt that I'll keep the tranny that'* with the car now because mine has about 60K less on it. From the sounds of it though I don't think I can really go wrong on this deal?

Yup, you definily can't go wrong. I'd like to find a wreaked Ser 2 */C so I can get the 4T65E- HD tranny off it but we all know that ain't gonna happen. A 4T65- E HD with 50 K or less would rule.

ha ha that is the best part of this whole post and YES 500 IS A STEAL. I sold off the supercharger from my old 95 LSS for near 200 on ebay, but hell if the trans is good that is worth 500 right there.
