I have the title to the Olds...
I don't think any Escort is worth $200 just to get a title to. Besides the tranny is toast in it. Not worth the time or effort to me to fix it. It has been stripped of about all the decent parts and will be junked within the next few days. I used the wheels and speakers on my Civic daily driver, and pulled the elctric slider sunroof and buckets seats along with some other odds/ends parts.
The Olds on the other hand will be driven quite a bit. I will do work to it as I drive it. First thing that will be done will be fixing the rust on the driverside. I would like to find some decent wheels and tires to slap on it. If anyone knows anything about these cars, I am curious to see how wide of a tire/rim I can squeeze in the back and front.
This is what started the whole thing about me buying the car from ny wifes grandfather.
I saw it at Goodguys last year and absolutely loved it, so i started asking her Grandfather about his. Turns out he did want to sell it.
Also this is the current stage of my truck.
I am pushing to have it driveable within the next month or so.
Later,
WEIMER
