    Bought this bad boy for 80 bucks. The dude had had it sitting in his driveway for about a year and half because the clutch slave started leaking and it leaked all the fluid out of it, so no clutch. then it wouldn't start when he went to sell it (dead battery). so i gave him the 80 bucks, refilled the brake fluid, gave it a jump, and drove it 30 miles home with no clutch (just rev matching to shift, and no stoping). so today i bleed the slave, and now i can drive it, just need to watch the fluid level until i replace it (55 bucks). the door damage is purely cosmetic as well. oh, btw, his dad was the orginal owner and took european delivery of it. not too bad for 80 bucks. heres some pics:

    That's sweet! I love cheap cars!

    You could easily sell it for at least a grand right now!

    If you want cheap parts go to zygmunt.com - they have the cheapest prices I have seen online. Good luck!
