hell yeah, couldnt pass it up, assuming the rust isnt too terrible, i hope to have it running for SOC, probably not too modified yet, but we will see.

best part is i just talked to the seller, and hes gonna deliver it to my parents house (bout an hour drive) for $55! cant go wrong there. only snag might be the lack of title, but hell, the notchback still has a good title, and so does the 91...

It's exactly like my car. I was seriously considering bidding on this for parts for mine. The interior is in better shape than mine.

I wanted to get mine running for this year's SOC, but alas it was not to be.

rust can certainly be fixed....it just depends on how involved you want to get with the car. My '91 had bad rot in two places, and I have only fixed one of them because I just hate dealing with that shit And I must say, a c900 or 99 would cause a lot bigger headache for fixing rust than a 9000.

Hopefully the rust is just in the usual places like the doors or maybe even the front fenders - PITA to swap , but it can be done with good results.

from the pics, it kinda looks like its the rear fenders, and that seems pretty typical for the 99's...so we'll see.

I'm sure that one near DC would make a good secondary car.
