Looking at a 56 oval here in Indiana , can't make up my mind to buy the car or not.
The car is $3,200.00 but has incorrect fenders, and Eng. cover, no door glass no motor and in seats are ok at best. Most of the other parts are there. The pan and body match the title and pans and channels are clean,
I'm not looking for a keeper but something to do over the winter and then sell later to make a few bucks. Been looking at ads here and it seems like most cars are over priced and have looked on Craigslist but not much there.
Found a off the grid bug in town but can't make up my mind,
Thoughts?
PS. No pics , Didn't want them to think I was to interested

So what you are telling us is that you are a car whore in it only for the money and you can't figure out the value of the car.

It should be a simple equation. Look at what it's missing, figure a cost to finding those parts, look at the time and effort and other expenses involved in doing the car, and then figure out the going rate is for an oval in the condition you hope to make it.

If you can make money on that do the deal. If not look for the next john.

Car Whore?
Well I like cars and I like to make money so I can buy more cars.
So I guess you are correct
Maybe I'll change my account name to car who're, or maybe Bug Whore!

It's the only type of whoring that's not illegal. More power to ya.
