Not to mention the hatchback version looks quite a lot better. Pass.

The coupe is far more rigid, not to mention lighter. It's actually the better car.

I'll try to remember to check in six months for a similar listing for a G35 that was planted into the highway divider.

I wonder if deals ever come out of car trade ads like that one, or worse, the ones that list nothing BUT trade suggestions without an asking price. I mean, I've never known anyone who traded a car for another car, and the sellers are really limiting their audience.

I'd much rather trade my car for money, then trade someone else money for their car.

My brother does the trade thing but he does it without looking for anything in particular. He has owned everything from an Explorer with 38" tires to a late model Jaguar all by trading even up or trade plus less than $500 cash. He has had at least 20 cars in the last two years.

No, he isn't that ambitious by a long shot. He just sees stuff that people are willing to trade and calls them up if he's interested. The worse they can say is no so it's no big deal. He has a reliable driver and a company vehicle so it's not like he's taking a big chance. A guy that works for me does something similar but he will put out cash if he sees something he can flip.

Some bodywork? Yeah well it doesn't work that way. That car is at best an interior part-out and an engine/driveline donor.

I'm thinking about buying this as a winter beater to save my miata from the midwest's salty roads as its rust free. Good idea or no? I can do most maintenance myself and other random things on cars like replacing drivetrain and suspension bits if needed.

I have had 2 rabbits and a fox, so I would totally do it. They are really easy to work on for the most part.
They are so much fun to drive. Make sure you get a locking gas cap though.

OK so just why in the hell would you swap in a Ford motor when the AMC motor of the same displacement would just drop in?
