Next ride maybe...

Well, I was out looking for a truck for my dad today and ran across this 01 Cobra, 68xxx miles, runs perfect. Problems: 2nd gear synchro is gone, needs front bumper, front grill support, rear bumper, little exhaust work, and alot of tlc. I offered the guy what I'm willing to pay for this car..so we'll see how it works out. If I get this, I'll fix it, drive it until I can't afford insurance anymore (a week or so) and sell it for profit, what ya think guys?

as soon as you get it fixed you wont want to get rid of it unless to get another car with the same power.

Haha...yes I know...but the first month that insurance payment comes in, it'll be sitting in the front of my apt complex with a for sale sign lol. The only, I repeat only, reason I would think about buying this car is to make money, plain and simple.

I believe you that those are your intentions but whether or not that will be the outcome is the question.

Yes yes true, I'm scared bout the synchro though. I've heard horror stories about changing those....and don't want this to turn into a money pit. The body work is no problem at all.

depending on what trannies those have (im not familiar with anything 4.6), you could possibly find a cheap transmission over the net and swap it in, and sell the current one as a core to someone somewhere

the rest of the stuff is easy

if your putting it on liability it wont be as much as you think. liability has nothing to do with the car really...just the driver, where u live,age,etc

my 88 is 200 a month for liabiliy, I asked the insurance guy what goes into factoring that figure. He said its just the driver and the price is would be the same if I had a new one.

remember for liability your basically paying for other people incase you hit them.
