I've been losing radiator fluid for a week or two and I just found out where it went! I've got an extra 2 quarts of green oil in my engine.....The station wagon is dead!!! I've got about $1200 right now and I should have $1600 by wednesday. By the weekend I'll have $2400.

I thought I'd ask around here to see if anyone has a dependable vehicle to sell or knows anyone who does...I need to get to school every day so I'm ready to get going on a new ride right away. I'm in eugene/springfield. Thanks for looking..

I've got $1000 worth of stereo equipment in there at least. It will definitely be coming out. There's a guy on CL buying clunkers...I'm waiting for a reply from him.

I personaly think station wagons have better sound with a subwoofer then normal cars do :D

A guy I work with is selling a 1990 lincoln continential with 90k. It is in excelent condition. I think he said it only had one previous owner, and that was his wifes dad before he passed away. Anyway he is asking 2000.00, but may be willing to work on that. After speaking with him you could probably pick it up for 16-1700.00. Shoot me a pm with your # if your interested.

If it has an airbag take that out as well. Those are worth money too.

Yeah get 100 for them taking it but little do they know you took anything of value of it it and start selling the parts youself. even some of the bodt like fenders. rims/tires. leave them with nothing but them taking it away and handy you a 100 dollar bill.

OK everyone,
I think I found a rig. It's a 89 nissan 4x4. The sellers are an older couple and they use the truck for dump runs and hauling stuff. It's only got 83k original miles on it and I think they are the original owners. I'll be checking it out tonight..Wish me luck!!!$1200


I want to try to scrap the wagon myself....Anybody know if that's possible? Those guys who offered me $100 all just sell the wrecks for scrap and they've got to be making some money on them.......I put an ad up to sell parts but so far nobody has replied..

Yep, I bought it tonight. Needs an exhaust system...I found one at a junk yard....I'll be working on that tomorrow. Needs paint but the body is pretty straight..That'll be a summer project. It has the Z24 motor in it..I had the same motor before in an 85 and I loved it..
