    Left to right, my car(we call it "A"), car "B" that I put together mostly out of spare part for my GF to drive & the latest addition to the fleet is car "C" which I just bought today to replace B. B is going to get stripped apart down to a shell because the slimeball I bought it from didn't include the detail that it has a salvage title. In Alberta, that requires it to go through a intense inspection including a laser frame check & any deviation from factory specs will cause it to fail. Once it fails, it can never be registered in the province for street use.
    So..... Everything is getting stripped off it & it's getting transplanted to C. When I bough C included was a set of new 1/4 panels that it desperately needs & a brand new set of front fenders. The underside is in great shape with no rust on the floors or frame rails, just the 1/4's rotted off.

    I have no idea what those wheels are but yes, they will be for sale as well as any other leftover parts when I'm done stripping B. C is going to get the Prostars that are on B now.

    They are all 15X7's I think, I'll let you know tomorrow when I go back to my shop & continue the stripping.

    Car C is a black on black model while mine was midnight blue with a blue interior. I changed everything in mine to be black a few years ago.
    Since I'll be using the same Pro Star mags, at night it will be tough to tell them apart especially if C get the same style stripes.

    C is actually a fully loaded car, power windows, locks, power antenna, air, t-tops, ect. I'm going to leave all the luxury stuff in it except for the air. It's far too crowded under the hood with all that crap still hooked up.
    I got B about 1/2 stripped today, engine & tranny are all unbolted & ready to lift, frame connectors are out, fuel pump & 1/2 braided lines are out. Tomorrow I'll yank the driveline, gut the interior & hopefully be able to kick it out & get C into the shop.

    That sucks about the title on car B. I ran into some title trouble on one I bought too and had to make a parts car out of it. Its amazing how very important details about a "clear title" dont seem to surface untill you already have car paid for and in your posession.
