Default I know I shouldnt do this....... but

A friend of mine found (while carpooling home from work) a very clean 03 GT, with all the toys. It says it has "motor issues". 1200 OBO!
Why do things show up in the winter.
Too curious not to call.

Most people don't respond to problem cars. So deal aggressively on price.

plus "motor issues" could be anything from a bad spark plug to a cracked block.

Buy assuming the worse case. And you won't go wrong. If it's not then you get to celebrate your assume find.

I just bought me a nice 2003 BMW 325xi for $650 because it had a "blown motor".

Turns out it had 4 cracked plugs and a severely clogged converter.

$50 junkyard cat, and a new set of plugs and she purrs like a kitten :-D

I love rich people.....they have no idea what theyre doing and just throw away their stuff for bananas ;-)

It may just be worth a look at!

Yeah I figure, it ain't gonna hurt to look.

Seeing as the one I drive now "had a hole in #3 piston" and all it was, was a cracked head.

I sent HER an email, so I'll wait and see.
