I think Repins'* car is still for sale, its already pretty well in beater status.

The no ABS would kinda suck for a winter beater though...

i cant afford that project lol
As much as I know you would not like this idea, I would say drive Red Deer as your Winter Beater........don't know how much it would cost you to buy it back.??
What is the deal with that car? I thought the insurance company owns it?

So what if the floor is warped....cosmetic. Frame is not that bad. Leave the side crumpled....touch it up with a paint roller. It'* going to get dirty and salty and stone chipped.

If not, buy a good used 4WD. You're gonna need it.....and it will give you far more Winter freedom.

Those doors are non funtioning on that side, the mirror is busted off, the REAR trailing axle is damaged, as the control arm back there bent the mounts, and actually broke a few, that strut is also destroyed back there.
The car would never hold heat,
The new trans is damaged, it spews ATF at a good rate.
Its a goner, ive forgotten its even here

OMG, I didn't realize it was that bad......and you want how much for it?

You can get a pretty good Winter Beater for $4000. or less, but treat yourself to 4WD and you will wonder what you did before you had one.

OFF-TOPIC: Sorry to those of you in other parts of the country...but "Winter is on it'* way?".....

Winter time for me means I can work and mod the bonne and good racing weather has finally arrived.

ON-TOPIC

I think an 88-91 Bonne would be a nice addition for you Matt. Only thing missing in your Bonne history would be a 2000+

I am counting the years until I can become a Snow Bird and spend November to March down near where you live Bob.

That would be awesome. If you need to, you can store the Bonne, or one of the Firebirds at my house I promise to take good care of them

Matt, I am assuming you want to purchase soemthing in canadia, but you know I am willing to hunt around here for ya.
