    I'm trying NOT to be a scrapper, as there is no money in it BUT

    guy at work has a 78 I think Ford Faimont, with a title...FREE just get it out of there

    then today the guy I got my current 96 Cherokee parts car from has a neighbor with a 94 Ford Crown Vic, 4.6 runs & drives but rusty for $100

    he mentioned I have dibs until the end of the week

    I don't have time for these but free is my favorite color

    The Fairmont....you won't get much in parts money I don't think BUT if it's in any way workable, you could sell it for good money. They ride on the Fox platform...same as the Mustang of that era. Guys look for those cars because you can do a lot of easy bolt-ons. It'll even accept the 5.0 and 351W.

    Get the Fairmont. If it's a 2 door it's really just a square Mustang.
    They make good bracket cars.
    Steal the $100 crown vic motor for the fairmont
    Sellit all as a Project for $1000

    Do it man, strip the crown vic and scrap it, then get the Fairmont in primer and sell it as a sleeper project. Spend a couple hundo in sandpaper and primer, ask $900, take $750 cash.
    That's what I would (try to) do at least, they're freeeee after all!

    You can sell the Crown Vic for $500 to a Demo Derby guy. The higher classes mod those up pretty thoroughly to run. A guy I used to work with was buying old Taxi cabs to do this. He would transplant his 350 sbc and whole drive train keeper setup from car to car.

    the problem with trying to flip is titles

    it's $100 to transfer a title in PA right now

    I only have room for two cars at a time so these need to be VERY quickly moved

    I usually get the sellers to do a power of attorney at a local notary office. Its free. Gives you 90 days to sell or get rid of a vehicle. And you pay nothing to transfer. You own the car and can do anything you want. If it expires get it renewed.

    Seems like a lot of work for a demo derby car.

    No way in hell I'd do that if I was the seller.
