    you can get some great deals at the tow yard auctions! My buddy works for a tow yard here and the cars start out at $50 I believe. Some there is nothing wrong with and others will have slight damage, usually body, but for $50-$200 WHO CARES!!!
    I've thought about getting one and just taking it to the riverbed and just jumping the crap out of it until it breaks, then take it to the scrap yard and get most of my $$ back /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Like you said...cheap fun!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My husband works at this tow yard and has personally towed in most of them. These start out at $10 and go up from there. A few run and have no body damage and would be great little cars for someone, some of them are wrecked and I doubt if they run but would be good parts cars then scrap.

    Last auction they had a late 90's Taurus that was wrecked go for $250 but it had some great parts on it.

    So did anyone buy anything? Jeff and me both missed it, I was stuck at work and he got detained towing for work. I wanted the Rx7 but it didn't happen since I couldn't be there, went for $450 and ran like a champ and looked good too /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
