Anyone looking for a project?

Ignoring all the mods it might be salvageable and the price is right.

They're paying me $750 to take the car right?

Yeah, I'm out on that one. It's possible to pay 10x as much for a 100x better car.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

When I first toyed with the idea of getting a vintage project (about 4 years ago) my son wanted a Chevelle.
It wasn't a big problem at the time as I had seen plenty on CL.
He then changed his mind after we saw a 70 sportsroof at a local show.
Ok....still doable.
I saw a few, but nothing really intact.
Fast forward to now and I haven't really seen any sportsroof reasonably priced, just hollowed out rust buckets from about $2000.
Seems to me like the potential projects around my area are drying up.
Maybe $750 is probably a better deal than most.

I Find it hard to believe there would be 2 mustangs that look so similarly ****ty but that one is dam close to one I checked out in the NorCal area a year or so ago. Even the way the flare on the driver side is unfinished looks the same. crap, now I have to dig through 30pages of Photobucket to ease my mind.

It looks twice as good as a rust-bucket coupe on one of the FB forums that the guy thinks is worth $8K

Finally old enough to drive the car I want instead of the one I need.

What in the He** does this sentence mean? Some kind of Klingon secret code words or something?

..."..car was originally a stick/man steering/man brakes..."

WTH is "Man steering" Or "Man brakes"? Dear Lord, some days I have absolutely given up on the human race.

Try looking for a 68-70 charger project once. Maybe in different parts of the country they're around, but here the things are scarce, and just stupid money. I briefly thought about one as a project.

Closest thing around here that is comparative to a Charger and reasonable in price is a Sattelite in need of much work.
For a Charger....you might as well be the king of Siam.
(When I was young and dumb I had a Dart, Fury III, and a Charger, they were all in bad shape. I didn't know crap about cars around that time and really didn't care about them, just drove them till they broke down and sold them. Come and go)

Around here in the Northeast if it's not a complete rust bucket I'd jump on that. So it needs new quarters and fenders. What project car doesn't?

I'm not sure what the guy was trying to create but somewhere along the line he lost his vision. The "tail fins" were apparently added for stability.
