how about the toyota.. $800 with the chrome wheels $600 without, and it's yours!

Pros:
1983 toyota cressida
2.8 litre twin cam strait six (aprox 150 hp)
two tone chocolate brown
250,000 km's runs like gold (never let me down all winter)
takes a lickin and keeps on ticking
Interior is mint for it's age
NO DRIVE CLEAN ..it's a classic car now
TRD racing machine.. top speed is over 220 km/h

Cons:
needs suspension for a smoother ride
needs diff replaced (i can supply the diff)
need a valve cover seal if you don't want it to drip
it ain't pretty but it'll get you from A to B

Thank you very much for the response, I'm going to show her this thread today and see what she says, I don't think she really cares TOO much. She just needs wheels.... Anyone else have a beater?

I'll PM you slowered

Lennon, I have a 1990 Accord 2 door EX-R , with no rust at my work. It has high mileage, but the car is great ! Come see it. It;s automatic, white color. I think we want like $3000 as is.

lennon i got a 1990 chevy celebrity wagon, 250km, some rust, blue paint, grey cloth, ac works, its a wagon so u can stuff whoever you beat up in the back, while keeping them comfortable..

if u want pics let me know, the car has been regularly maintained and still no problems, i actually like how GM USED to build their cars, very very reliable, starts up with no problems throughout all seasons, unlike the malibu we have now hesitates for like 10sec in SUMMER!!!!!!!!!

asking $1200obo
