Default Pick up another car yesterday

Since I found out my frame was tweaked the other day I went on the hunt to find another one and found a 72 Olds Cutlass I was gonna pick up for a donor fame on Craigslist a guy was selling for $950 (frame shop wanted $300 to fix mine) and it didn't have any pictures but It gave a address so I went and checked it out after work and turns out it's actually a pretty decent ride with only about 80k miles. It came from down south two years ago and I couldn't hardly find any rust on it at but it was a little beat up from the current owner. I offered him $750 and we had deal! Now that I've got the car home, cleaned it up a bit, and checked out a few pictures of what this car look like all fixed up I'm not sure I want to strip it for the frame, bucket seat, and the console.

It was a steal. I would probably do some work to it and flip it. I would still look for another donor car for your frame.

Well the frame on my chevelle isn't so bad it can't be used. The guy I got it from said he didn't even know it was like that and drove it the whole time he had it. So, I'm thinking bout getting the frame straightened, swapping the frame, and bucket seats, then fixing a few things and flipping it since I don't have the room for both cars.

Probably make some money on the Olds to pay for getting your Chevelle frame straighten.

Those bucket seats are worth 1/2 of what you paid for the car or maybe more .

If you really need/want bucket seats you can buy mine. I would leave that car alone. Fix it up some and flip it. I am getting after market seats for my chevelle and my seats are out of a gran prix.
