If it were to happen, i think a good starting point would be body work and paint. That seems to be in a higher demand than stuff speed related, then once the foundation of the business is set then it could be expanded to the more "fun" stuff.

Idk man body work is a ***** and im really not that goood at it if we were to start i think we should start by buying a fixer upper pre smog. And get it all mechanically running and then sell it. There is actually a lot of money to be made in there and then when we have money after that then get a car and do a bit more onto that car and so fourth and do little side jobs to get funds for the current car

Well i've got $4k in a savings account and will probably get another $3k next summer from a 3 week job... I wouldn't mind putting it toward something like that if we are sure we can get good turn around on it. Hell i've heard of people buying a cheap car, giving it a cheap paint job and selling it for even more.

I actually am a decent detailer, and i was going to see if i could get a machine polisher for either christmas or my birthday (in feb). You don't know how many videos i've watched on detailing. Plus i've done quite a few cars myself.

What would some good cars be? They need to be ones that maintain value when kept nice, but can quickly drop value when they start to fall apart. I don't know much about flipping cars, but what do you think about the titles of the car? Should it be clean or will a salvaged work? I usually would never buy a car (for myself) that has a salvage title.

Well it depends really i mean tbh hondas are the best to make money one but with a salvage title they can be a ***** to sell. And the other problem is smog that can be a pain in the *** (fing California) so for me i think a pre 75 (thats the year that smog stops) would be the best ones with a good rust free body and decent paint and that maybe needs some engine or transmission work because i have to tools and know how to fix that

This could be promising... Simple paint job, and it could probably make over $1k profit.

You guys need to watch a few seasons of Wheeler Dealers.

If it's a car you wouldn't buy (salvage title, serious repairs needed, etc) odds are you're going to have problems selling it too. Personally I think you will have the best luck with fixing something cosmetic like dents, body work and a respray. That's the first thing people see, and nobody spends a ton of $ on a car with bad body work or crappy paint, but a car with straight lines and nice paint can get good money.

Hows your painting? I actually know a decent amount of people that would be interested in a cheap (priced) paint job. And thats easy money since the paint itself itsn't terribly expensive, its mostly labor.
