    In search on a SC...

    I'll post this in the wanted section as well but I'm asking a favor to all the local guys.

    I'm looking for another SC. I'd prefer it to be a 92, a 5-speed, with no sun-roof. I'd like the exterior to be black too, but it's not a must. I don't care what the interior looks like, it can be stained, faded, ripped, doesn't matter. I'd like low miles, around 80k or so if possible.

    SO...if you see one, anywhere within a 200 mile drive, let me know. Or if you have more than one or 5 in your collection, and want to sell one, let me know. Thanks for the help!!!

    You should fly in and drive it back. I am sure the cops are not going to know the difference in your plates. Have a member check it out for you and take extra pics of it.

    looks like my car's unmolested brother.... I sent an email, we'll see what happens. That other car in PA fell through.. This would be a 16 hour drive....

    Which SC chapter is located in this region?

    I would be pretty sweet if you are able to grab that. The drive is not too bad, ive done it 3 times to ohio. From there is just a couple of miles more
    If you are able to get it it will allow you to pick the best parts out of both yours and his. And sell the remaining parts. You could make a pretty good penny. I Know Tweed seats go for a premium since they wear so well.

    yea it would. Stinks it needs paint, but maybe I can hold off on paint for a year or so, and pick it up for $2000. I might fly out to look at it, then ship it. We shipped a car to CA for my sister and it was $950. I bet shipping a car to NH from that location would be cheaper. Well, at least comparible to driving and paying for gas.

    i still say fly in and drive it back. Dont let the guy know you coming from out of state untill you pay for it. I love driving road trips.
    The fact that it has original paint allows you to see what you are getting into and creates a great base to work up to. Or just paint the faded areas for now. Looks like that guy took care of it too lots of replacement parts.

    I already told him I was from NH. Because I don't know how I'm going to get there, from the airport, ect. I may even bring a truck and trailer out there. Its about 1000 miles, figuring 15mpg... at around 2.50 a gal, thats about $170 each way. I don't think I could find a plan ticket for that cheap and drive it back. Or, I can fly out to see it, and ship it back. I've got a few quotes around $400 to ship it. Either way....I'm getting a little ahead of myself here. We'll have to wait and see if he even responds.

    Which SC chapter deals with Indiana?

    Well I got an email back from the guy. Turns out that both rocker panels are rotted out and the car was in an accident before where the bumper, both fenders, lights and the hood were replaced. The clearcoat is peeling on the roof, trunk, and quarters.

    I think I'll let this one pass. If it was involved in an accident where front end parts were replaced, you can almost garentee that the radiator support is messed up. If the rockers are rotted out, chances are that the damage goes pretty far.

    Dang, I thought I found my car....oh well. We'll keep looking I guess.

    Sorry to hear. Only had 80k I didnt think it would have rocker rust unless it had a sunroof.

    Damn road salt.

    I think you might have to expand your search to southern cars. Ill keep an eye out.

    White's not my color, but I may change my mind. Car collectors would kill me because I'd put a 5-speed in, swap the interior to black and put in an 8-point cage
