Looks like I'm buying it! said friend bought a newer Honda because over the past 5 years she spent less then $500 on upkeep!

My thought now is, do I replace the $50 axle that has gone bad and weld some more of the exhaust so I can drive it as a winter beater or do I use it for parts?

My brother, parents and I all have VX's now, my parents have a VX for parts too, mine is in the best shape by far, with just a hint of rust on the rear.

I'll most likely end up paying either $200 or $250 for it.

My current daily driver has a broken glove box and the drivers seat is in poor shape, this parts car also has the optional clock.
I'm tempted to install a new drive axle and drive it in the winter, maybe glue on metal patches over the rust and truck bed liner the whole thing?
My other vx is from 1993, so I could even get collector plates to help offset the cost of ownership.
