Do you have pictures that you could share. A lot of value goes into how it looks.

He said he will. Circumstances are preventing it at the moment.

It looks like I need to post 5 posts before the site will allow me to post links, but maybe this will work:

Put the http: in front of this line to see if I can trick the forum police //s1031.photobucket.com/user/sinsky1/library/1994%20Geo%20Metro

Ok, I took pics. I probably will put the car on craigslist and ask for people to send me offers of what they want to pay for it. I'm not strapped for cash, but I do want to sell it pretty quickly as I have a friend holding another car for me to buy.

The only "damage" it has is there is a little dent on the driver's door, and the rubber side window seals have been eaten up the UV at this altitude, and probably needs to be replaced. That is it.

Let me know what you think. I will probably put it on Craigslist tomorrow and want to sell it by Wednesday next week.

I like the box you built to replace the rear seat, looks pretty legit.

Hope you don't mind if I copy it for my Festiva. I was going to pull out the rear seat anyway, but didn't have a master plan on finishing it out . . .until now!

The link worked fine btw

Yeah, the rear seat was a worthless gesture. The box is working fine, the car is now like a mini pickup. I eventually took out the passenger seat, as my wife is embarrassed to drive in it. She only used the car to take the dogs to the river (her car is a 1203 VW Toureag Diesel). So with the front passenger seat gone, there is a ton of room in the car, and anything I put in there is very easy to get to.

In an probable effort to save every oz of weight in building the car, there was a lot of metal surface under the seats. So to the point of adding a couple of pounds of weight to the car, I added a bunch of sound insulation, and surprisingly, the car runs a lot quieter. I am sure the insulation underneath, and the carpeting on top helps a lot.

I think I will put a (somewhat arbitrary) value of $3000 for the car to see if anyone wants to make an offer. I will post it on Craigslist today and I will let it go to the highest offer this coming Wednesday as I have my eye on another car, and my wife won't let me buy the new one until I sell the old one (she mentioned something about the house looking like a used car lot). Something I didn't disclose earlier as it didn't make a difference to me when I bought it (because it drives so well), is it has a salvage title. When I bought it the right fender was new and the hood was a little crunched on the right side. There is no evidence that the accident caused any permanent damage as the car drives like a dream. Everything is tight and no slop anywhere. The old tires were worn evenly when I replaced them, and with my experience of driving it, there are no issues at all. I am assuming that the person who got in the accident, took it to a body shop and the insurance company noted that the car was only worth $1000 and the repair was probably worth that too, so they totaled it. That is the only thing that makes sense.
