Default Almost there! Update, pics w/ Urban Camo.

I bought the 2dr regal today($600), transfered tile/tags, got insurance on it, and i'm about to get it inspected in a couple ours!!
I can't wait.
It'* your quintessential beater but i'm just excited to get back into a car.
Pics will probably follow tomorrow.
But it looks similar to the pic below but it'* blue w/ primer blotches, dull cause it'* prepped for paint, a molding or 2 is off but not missing, i just need the clips.

I don't see that happening with the lowly 140 hp MPFI 3.1l 60degreev6 it came with. :( and there won't be any engine swaps either. It'* just gotta be an A to B thing for a little while.

Talked to the owner of the Maaco I use to work at and he said he would shoot it for $200.. I'm good friends w/ the painter too so we'll see how that goes. Gonna go like navy blue.
My charcoal Ro_Ja rims from the bonneville won't fit over the front calipers I guess from the differences in off set.. I'll fix that w/ a die grinder when I get around to it.
So I'll paint it, get the rims on there and try not to do anything to it after that. Still planning on getting a bonnie after I graduate in december..
Did a tune up today too. plugs, wires, O2, oil change. Had to rock the motor but other than that not hard to work on.
So whattcha think? Worth $600 off someone I know?

If it'* in good condition, then the price ain't bad... does it leak oil?

Those chevy 3.1 motors are pretty strong. Should last you a while. My '93 lumina (a fellow W body and presently my daily driver) has 160K miles on it.... have heard of luminas going outward past 220K miles! I plan to

That baby should look pretty nice with fresh paint and your charcoal rims. I'd say it was a better choice than the Sten!
