    According to recent ads, at least $15k

    Tell us more about it, condition (non-runner I assume) interior color, transmission, mileage, State and of course VIN


    And how you ended up in a situation where you were flipping for a car

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Everything looks original, has 30000 miles. Gray interior, auto, they said everything function when it was parked in 1989 or 1990. The body is perfect except for a little dent in the front quarter where the molding it missing. You can hardly tell it's there. I had to look at it closely to make sure it was not suppose to be there. I'll post some pictures soon. The owners took the door panels off looking for the key code. I found it in 5 seconds so I need to put them back on. I did remove the steering lock to get it home. But can reuse the bolts.

    Suggestions on where to begin? I plan to start on the fuel system. Replace plugs, wires, all hoses if needed and belts of course.

    Also I was going to replace the struts as nothing stays up.

    Also I was going to pay 5000.00. I think he joked about flipping and I said ok, tails. He looked at me, pulled out a quarter and tossed it in the air. You know the rest.

    I used vice grips to hold the doors open when I first had mine...quickly ordered new ones from dmcnw cause its a pain to hold the door while trying to lock the grips on the strut.

    Sitting that long, fuel system is a good place to start..get that all flushed..then you know you wont be pushing bad stuff through the system when you try to get it running.

    Good question; oddly enough my car had the exact same floor mats when I got it. I have since replaced them but this is the first time I've ever seen another owner with them. I always assumed they were just some aftermarket that my previous owner put in but now it makes me wonder.
