PostSubject: Buy this auction car so I don't have to!   Mon Apr 25, 2011 2:44 pm

Anyone interested in a White 96 RMW with only 71k on the clock?

I want to buy it and fix it myself, but I really shouldn't be blowing my savings on it. I can't bring myself to walk away from the deal unless I know it's going to a good home.

It's at a local auction set to go off this week. The car is very clean and well kept. It belonged to a good friend until the insurance company totaled it. It actually went thru Fred's possession at one point. Smile

It needs a hood, grille, DS headlight and bucket, and the core support pulled back out. And perhaps a bumper cover. I also have all the needed parts on my parts car to fix it (another white RMW).

It does have a salvage title, so it will take some title work to get a plate on it but it is still do-able.

The car can be had for around $1000.

If your genuinely interested, shoot me a PM and I'll send you the auction link and all the details.

Hey Mikey!!!!! We miss you and Jess!!!! You need to come around more often!

And was that one of Mark's cars?

Looks like an easy fix. Wish I needed another project. But I don't. Wink

It looks like the front door gaps have closed up and the RF fender is crinkled at the door. Or am I seeing things that aren't there?

How's the underside of it?

Bill, yeah that was Marks car that he bought at WF09..

Whats that hippie wagon in your avatar? Very Happy

Joel, the DS fender is slid back a bit but not enough to interfere with the door opening. But it is close where the trim is.

I honestly can't speak for the underside, it was pouring down rain when we went to the yard to take a look. If I recall it was a southern car, then it saw 2 Pittsburgh winters.

I may decide to get out there to take another look on a dry day. It's about 45 min from my house.


Mike, I have a white RMW donor car.. Smile <cough cough>

Yeah, the underbelly is pretty clean. The only rust is in the typical places. Along the gas tank "runners" and other little pieces that are spot welded on.

It does need some inner fender work, it's got the typical rust where GM drilled the mounting holes for coolant tank, fuse box, hood release cable, the.

Aside from that it's solid. There was water on the rear pass floor that I've yet to track down it's origins. We shop vacced it out and I have a fan and dehumidifier running in there now.


Mike, I'll have the black car at Carlisle, doubt I'll have this one fixed up yet..
