    haha thanks. it could be better. there are some minor flaws that need to be fixed and a small rust spot in the trunk. smaller then a dollar bill.

    Im with Jaison. Id rather have 15 project cars in decent shape than 1 good car in perfect shape. Should be getting a black 79 here in a few weeks.

    Just picked up the 91 the other day. I love having something small to do. Im at the point right now where I have to spent over 400 bucks to do ANYTHING on mine..

    Man just get it cleaned up and save every penny for an ls1. They are so so cheap when modified nowadays. Most bolt on ls1 cars are going for 7-8k now.

    yea thats what i was thinking but as of rigth now i have 3 cars, and dont need 3. i have my first car, 02 sunfire, an 09 Cobalt SS turbo (DD), and the 79 T/A. the sunfire is for sale, just no luck. i would much rather have only 2 cars then 3. considering my age i should only have one car.

    well i bought this one for 8500, and to me and many others, is worth at least 13000. how good a shape was it in?

    I have 4 now that are in my name... lol. Sold off two other projects as well.

    Even though the 79 will sell a helleva lot faster then the rest it will haunt you for the rest of your days

    Ebay that bitch.

    As I bought my other bird my GF asked why do I have more than 1 car... then I reminded her.. that if it wasnt for her living 1/2 a mile from work, she would be screwed after a f-250 t-boned her ass.

    it is good to have a back up car... without worrying about a rental.
    theres no more room for any more cars at my house. there are those 3 cars... my mom has a C6 and a Scion XD as her DD. haha the garage and driveway is pretty much full.

    yeah I know the feeling. You have to move cars to drive another car.

    Driveway looks like a used car lot.

    its sounds like he should have sold it if it could drive, instead of giving it away...
    who knows.
