Default 2003 Dream Cruiser - Parts or repair - LA area

Hi All,

Right or wrong I gave my 2003 Dream Cruiser Series 2 to my son to drive out to California a few years ago. It's been a good car for him, but has run into some problems recently and I'd rather find him an older pickup. I'm only posting this because I'm into restoring old cars and I hate to hear about the car that I could have used but was crushed or used as a lot car, etc. Hoping someone out there could find this useful.

I saw the car back in January and it was still quite solid at that point. As far as the issues it's having; The tires all leak as most of them did. One of the rims had been welded after he hit one of LA's finest potholes. The multifunction lever is broken and causes the fog lights to stay on killing the battery. There is a dent at the lower left corner of the tailgate. There is a dent at the front edge of the hood. I think the grille still looked great. The front bumper cover was damaged and pulled off when it was just towed. The doors still looked great. The glass is all good including the sunroof. As far as I know all the power functions still worked well. The interior still looked quite intact with the only real wear showing on the driver's seat and the carpet. It's that beautiful black and orange interior. I don't know what the issue with the engine is. He said he was getting on the highway and the engine lost power, the check engine light came on and it quit. I'm just going to assume that the motor is cooked. If not, it's a bonus. about 153k.

If the car were here in NY, I would be repairing it and driving it. Not even sure what value someone would see in it, but if interested drop me a line.

Thanks

Ok is it a automatic or stick? Milage? I'm thinking it's the timing bet broke. Value in an area like that. Not that much. Not that many people can fix themselves and cost in a shop high. But if a 5 speed. Chances it will find an a owner is better.
