Right now i have a friend who knows about a 1968 Charger (said it looks complete) for sale but its been there for a while and he THINKS the guy said about $800 (1.5 years ago) so i want to find out the number and see about it.

A '68 for $800??? Something doesn't sound right. If it is a complete car, snatch it up because you will be very hard pressed to find one cheaper. I've seen rolling shells going for over $1000 and they need A LOT of work.

i have an 88 cougar xr-7 that is a limited edition of 2500, 5.0 250hp(currently w/202000 miles) a.o.d. w/shift kit, posi w/308s, oversized fuel system, fuel pump, injectors, t-body, ram air ,ported heads, premium sound. it seems slow but it can break the rear end loose at 40mph. it is now my project and i hope to put a 460 or 351w

i own a 89 geo spectrum, stock strictly for the 30mpg

i own a 89 f-150 with 300ci inline 6 and t-5, paid for but in the shop having tranny rebuilt with lower gears. im going to lift it and put bigger tires on it, not full off road, but a little more aggressive. i want a 351w or a 460 for it

i drive a 90 olds cutlass supreme, but will be selling it soon and hopefully getting a 95 dodge avenger that is in great condition, it is a tuner and i have never owned one so i figure i can play for a while, then put a 3800 in it

I know, i dont know if i can really believe it but the kids sure it was around $800-1000 and he said it looks complete. I'm hoping to get yhe number and find out cause it does sound cheap but if its right then i'm not gonna think twice. Can only hope lol considering all its doing and has been doing is sitting there rotting more and more everyday.

You can go here:
http://www.dsmtuners.com/model-guide...eclipse2gb.php
for stock specs of the eclipse.

as for my car, I havent completely finished it yet, here is a short list:
-A'pexi S-AFC
-AVC-R @16psi
-3" Downpipe & Cat-Back
-Greddy Type-S BOV, Arospeed Intake
-Autometer Full Pillar with A/F
-Boost & EGT gauges
-Autometer Pro-Shift Lite
-ACT Clutch Kit w/2,600 Pressure Plate
-Magnecor Wires
-NGK BPR7ES

Your question as to if its a good car, I think souly depends on the driver. I absolutely love my eclipse and would never trade it in for any other car in the world. But thats my own opinion. I'm sure others will argue that to the death.

1999 integra GSR- modified enough for amatuer drag racing
1994 chevy s10 blazer- used for towing the integra in a trailer to the track
1969 volkswagon super beetle- new project car that looks like the jesus got beat out of it
1993 Mustang GT- use for a daily driver

But i am sadly selling my loved Integra and Blazer to my friend so i can move on and have enough to work on the beetle that is in storage right now.
