    Yup, been thinking about the DMV option, but also thinking about the scary factor with these folks.

    Id walk away, thats a lot of miles on an 88 when the title is in question.

    Well just go to your department of motor vehicles with the vin and have them check it, im sure they would do it for free. I think I wouldn't pay anymore than 400 for it, just because of going through all the hassle of getting a new title for it.

    I've had an opportunity to speak with the "owners" of the car again, and it's starting to sound like it may be a bad idea. It appears that they are...not members of normal society...to put it nicely. Let's just say they don't work 9 to 5, but money's not a problem. They don't have a key for the car, they don't have registration for it, and as they tell me, they're selling it for a "friend."

    It seems to me that it might be the kind of deal where you buy the car, and at some point when you get pulled over for a burnt out tail light you find out the car was either sold to you illegally, or used in a crime, and in either case gets seized by the courts as evidence or as stolen property.

    Oh well, one down. There are plenty of Festivas in the sea.

    Don't forget that it will most likely be a 4 speed

    Found a car, need your thoughts on it.

    I spotted this car a few houses down from my parents place in a backyard. It's an 88 Festiva L, carburated. The thing about this car that I find amazing is that is has virtually no rust. For a 20 year old Festiva to have no rust in Calgary is friggin' amazing. The headlights are broken, the interior is shot, but the body is fantastic, and I honestly don't mind working with a carb. but I'd prefer fuel injection. They're asking $800 for it, but I'm pretty sure I could get it for $500. Any thoughts?

    Heres a few pics.
