About “bumble bee”

pick the car up for $425 runs and drive cant ask more for that
i got this car after a lady hit my other winter beater and her ins wouldnt cover it. i drove and drove it hard until spring when the steering rack broke and they wanted $400 to fix it so i scraped it

About “My First Car”

This is my first car. I was looking forever on craigslist for a cheap car. i didn't care what or if it ran. i found this under hyundai and saw it was located not even 3 miles away. I paid $250 for the car in August/September. it didnt run and it does need lots of work. I got it running the first time for $10.39. that was for spark plugs. As far as history goes. i know the guy was doing custom work and simple repair/rebuilds. the car is from north carolina. only rust is located in the spare tire compartment which leaks in from under the rear side window and a small bubble under tailgate. the cars biggest problem is the previous owner snapped one of the bolts that secures the fuel rail. i have rigged it to work but i want to repair it.
