1994 Cougar XR7 DOHC/5-Speed
I can’t imagine either of those fit budget targets. S2000s especially, those are on a tall pedestal for import fans
Because people want money for those things. I don’t want to spend more than $1500-$2000 tops on the whole project, including purchasing the vehicle, so I want some busted junker that nobody wants that I can pick up for under $1000.Why not an early Honda s2000 or a Mazda RX-8? Both are near your weight targets and with enough "weight loss" will make that 2,500lb target.
I had to google that Malaise era car. 2.1M cars might have been sold but I doubt any "drivers" (vs collectibles) survived the past 50 yearsI haven't been watching the market because I don't really care for them much, but how about a Maverick? Weren't many of those 4cyl cars? Maybe fine one of those on the cheap?
as long as he uses zipties and hose clamps for motor mounts, and spills all the fluids whatever parking lot he installs it in ?Is this Roadkill???
I'm currently still "playing house" with my remodel but for you buddy, I would have taken a look. only problem is I just clicked now and post has been DELETED. Sorry man..The black 70 would just constantly remind me of the 70 Torino that I sold because I was never going to get around to it. Plus that doesn’t run, so it would have to be shipped, which is a can of worms I don’t want to open.
I’ve always wanted to do a cross country road-trip, and have never had an opportunity or reason to do so. I really don’t have time to do one right now, but that car is just calling to me for some reason.
Gunn, how far is that from you? Might you be willing to take a look at it in person for me?
