Good Great or No?

Okay I'm going to go look at this on Wednesday he is wanting $800 for it. It's a 96 h23a1 5 speed. He has the bumper its just inside the car. He says it was knocking and he took it out but the engine and everything comes with it including title. I was wanting to use it for a parts car and depending on the condition it is I might end up using that one and have mine as a parts car and just drop my engine into it instead of converting mine into a 5speed and just put my dash and everything into that one except for my console and get it painted later. I would like your guys 2 cents on the matter.

Re: Good Great or No?

If I go that way I'm going to take the steering wheel and just use the rest as a parts. What you think about the rear kit?

Yeah I was already going try to haggle him Ill probably build that motor while its out so I can still drive mine while I'm building that one. The 5 speed swap should be pretty easy, my car use to be a 5 speed and someone swapped it before I got it

I know right when I found out I was pissed that it had been swapped. I agree about the bumper lol but I'll get to see it more this Wednesday so I'll have a better understanding of what it looks like.

Re: Good Great or No?

If you decide to offer in the 400-500 range, bring cash in $20's. It sounds dumb, but when somebody sees a fat stack of 20's, they normally make rash decisions.

Not dumb at all, sounds like a very convincing approach actually.
