Iron Duke

Found a 4cylinder Camaro for sale within spitting distance of the house.

Really thinking about pulling the trigger on this- its a solid car, just no horsepower.

unless it's an economical DD, looks to be a just another money pit.

Looked at it again; Its a money pit at 1100 bucks. Just couldn't pull the trigger.

I see it as probably a 500 buck paperweight,now sitting in a public parking lot with an expired 30 day tag. You need rubber gloves to go into the interior- its that filthy.
I have an attached garage- I would need roach motels and mouse traps set if I dragged it home.

Probably pissed the owner off when he asked my honest opinion of the car.
I wasn't as brutal as my above comments , but.......
..... did say that the 4 banger was probably toast , and that the car was at best a project.
I think he had just bought it a month earlier,expecting it to run- and it died.

Rolled by it tonight after dinner.

Somebody was looking at it. Hopefully it'll get a good home before it gets impounded , crushed , and melted into a dozen Honda lawnmowers.

I can't imagine how slow that car would be. Would have to motor swap it!

Guy said the car wouldn't do over 40 when it ran. I told him on top of everything else, it may have a plugged cat converter.

Definetely a candidate for a small block.

I've passed on it for now, and apparently the guy looking at it the other day did too.

I'm thinking the owner is in too deep to let it go cheap.

I remember a 3rd gen Firebird when I was a kid that was stripped down with a sheet metal dash 4cyl turbo and a on the squeeze . That thing would spank a lot of cars on the street.
