Some questionable HXes

There is one that looked clean except for the cheap aftermarket headlight, springs, and who knows what else. $2,400. Oh yeah, it needs a [$400] primary oxygen sensory. https://offerup.com/item/detail/649954610/

Wrong wheels, too.

This one seems like a parts car for $350. The ad is in Spanish and I am fluent in Spanish, but I am simply not sure what this lady is saying. Her car randomly died, they replaced some parts, the mechanic said "Bomb"--no, "Pump!" It is the same word!

It sounds like she cannot figure out what is wrong, but she kept mentioning the carburetor on a car that is definitely fuel-injected. There are not many pictures and I can only wonder why she shared what she did. A picture of it hosed off in the shade. A picture of most of the back. A picture of most of the dash with hanging wires, broken vents, and oh. A shifter.

A picture of the edge of the door. Why?!

It shows more hanging wires from the other end of the dash.

Maybe it would have some useful parts. The description starts seeming to say that it randomly died, but ends with "It runs."

$350 for a parts car? https://offerup.com/item/detail/656092216/

One picture of this garage-kept beauty for $1,100:


Manual with 125,000 miles, but they say it needs a new Crankshaft Position Sensor: https://offerup.com/item/detail/653806532/

Repair Pal says it would cost up to $411. I could buy a Civic for that much!

Buy both and hope the Spanish one has a good CPS?

The more expensive one has the right wheels.
