Part that baby out. $150 for the supercharger, $50 for the LIM, $100 for the heads, $45 for the starter, $35 for the alt. And that'* just getting started. Headlights, tail lights, body panels, seats, wheels and tires, dash, HUD, air bags, sun roof, glass. Then scrap what ever is left. You'll get your money back and then some. Or fix the engine and flip if for $3000 or $4000.

Wish I would have seen this earlier. Just paid $525 for a rear bumper cover (painted and installed)- this is the same color as my Bonny.... and only 160 miles away.

Think I am going to buy it if still available. Any tips on a towing rig? I have a 2007 F-350 single wheel base- would have to rent a trailer....

I say offer $500 and go from there, might get it for $800. The car is to heavy for a dolly, so you will need a full trailer.
