Default Had to pass on this investment today




1990 Integra LS, 5spd, 148k miles. Clear coat was toast. Needs a battery and exhaust work but fires right up, rust was minimal from what I could see. Asking price was $800. Got it down to $200. But ultimately passed. This netted a loss of 3 hours of travel time and approximately $20 worth of gas.

You passed on that for $200?

Another $200 in parts and that’s an easy $2,000 flip

Could have been less than $800 into the car with your repairs and you passed?

Id agree with you, if I could drive it away. The ebrake wouldn't unstick. Pretty sure it's frozen up. I have a rule, if I can't drive it away. I pass. I had gone there with the intent of paying full ask, putting a battery in it, and driving away.

Going from $800 to $200 is pretty impressive. Isn't the melt value higher than that?
