Default another craigslist money making project?

think I would have to drop to much money into this one to make anything??

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/car/466741299.html

Quote:
Year/Make/Model: 1996 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE SSEI
Body Style: SEDAN 4 DR
Engine Type: 3.8L V6 FI OHV
Miles: 158,000
Manufactured In: UNITED STATES
VIN: 1G2HZ5219TH205998

Here is the deal we had too many calls asking whats wrong with it, so: 1. Trasmition skips a little we think at 3rd gear.
2. And the car needs to be started from underneath the car. Two things needs to be touched together in order for it to start. Firestone said that its the battery but we changed it and still didnt help so we have a free visit to Firestone to find out the source but we think that its the starter which is real cheap to fix.
3. Body is in perfect condition as you can see from the pictures and the car is worthed $4500 on kelley blue book. Any mechanic can make a lot of cash out of it. Or if someone want to fix it for themselves it will be very happy. It drives real fast and nice. It has a clear title too, and tabs have been just renewed. Its a good deal, do a little research and you can find for yourself. Look at kelley blue book look at car soup. Cant beat that price and can make money out of it..

Try to call 507-440-6434 - Josh if he dont answer send an email with your offer. We want to sell it by the end of the week. So first one to match the 1090$ can have it right away else best offer. Give good offers and I will give it away. Just want to sell it I need fast cash.
Thanks for your time.



I emailed them in a blind offer of $700

exactly why it is so cheap. I can deal with un-maintained. I can't deal with non-running rusted peice of crap.

it is not even forsale yet, the title is not here for probably another month.

I think I could work around having 3 vehicles.

In MI you can't sell more than 5 vehicles in one year without having a dealer'* license. Granted you can sell more than 5, but you'll be lieved some fines if you can't show evidence of a license.

You might want to check that out before you proceed....or just wait until next year to resell it. But, that would cut into your resaleability for next year. Just food for thought.
