    It doesn't look too bad, the front end looks like it has the most of the damage. Both doors and hatch open and close nicely? Who knows what the bottom looks like too...

    I wouldn't. The money you'll have into the car fixing it will be more than what it's worth and the fact that it has been wrecked like this ruins any chance at all of it being valuable later on, regardless of it being a CETA. I'd also be worried the car wouldn't drive true. You'd have to have the frame checked out.
    It's on jackstands.

    its sad to see a car like this in this condition,its at the auction do you guys think $1500 is too much to spend on it? it would probably be best to part it out,would you guys think someone would be less interested in buying the engine if i swapped the ls6 intake to my car and put the ls1 intake on the 02 engine?

    the big dent in the left rear quarter is a deal breaker for me.

    new hood, bumper, right front, left rear and drivers door. thats a lot of money and praying.

    if youve got good funding and determination i think its doable, as long as the body stayed straight enough

    If your doing it as an investment..... no.

    If your doing it to drive and can do most the work yourself ...yes

    You should be able to get it back to nice driver status for less than $6,000.00 to $7000.00

    $500.00 for a VFN hood,$400.00 for used fender/bumper, $200.00 for the door,$1000.00 for wheels and tires,$500.00 for brakes.

    $1500.00 for miscillanious shit,headlights washer tank,battery ect.

    Paint if you do the body work yourself $1000.00 to $1500.00.

    At a $1500.00 puchase price you could part it out and make money if its too far gone.

    Don't see any labor cost here, which would be astronomical...

    Id pass as well unless you were looking to part it out and could deal with it taking some time to see a return on your 1500. between seats, intake, a/c, unharmed body parts and misc interior/exterior components you could get you money back and maybe some pocket cash. But like i said. you'd need the space and time for it not to become an issue down the road.

    Thats because I said if he could do the work himself

    If you farmed that out you might as well buy a good one off Ebay for the money.

    Lots of good parts on there. Sell the drivetrain, and you made your money back. The rest is gravy.

    I agree with this.....Lots of parts to be sold off.

    Not just the drive train alone. You have convertible top and motor, rear lid and bumper, all of the interior (worth several hundred parted out), wire harness and PCM, hell tail lights alone will get you $80 a piece.


    I'd start out at $1000 but no more then $1300. After that you're losing any potential for money.
