Nah she's just too bashful to post in "casual encounters"
I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice....
Fog rolled in pretty thick! :eek1
Is that it...............I thought it might of been from the bong
This is a car, not a motorcycle. I swung by and had a quick look. If you wanted a winter beater or mountain car, you could do a lot worse. Sadly, it would take a lot to make this car 'nice' so I had to pass. A new window is only $90 delivered.
Heck of a lot nicer than most Subarus you can buy for $1k. It's a very good value for the right person.
1990 Audi 200 Turbo Quattro Wagon
Not bad, and I am looking for a car for my daughter (somewhere between $1,000 and $3,000) but that one won't work (must have a AT), plus since her SO wants to get something that he wants her to have (after they get their taxes, he sells her wrecked car and his old truck, bla, bla, bla) I want to get her a car that she can drive now, then sell it when he gets her what he wants her to have (whenever that is).
So post up some cages, there could be a finders fee it for the right deal
Good thing it's a 5 speed. Aren't those the ones that back over your dog and your neighbor's kids on its way to taking a seat on their sofa in the front room?
Driver error, just like almost every case of unintended acceleration (Toyota floormats not withstanding.)
Also, if I had a daughter in need of an inexpensive car, she would be rolling in one of these without a doubt:
(90 and up have driver's air bag. 91, 92, represent all the incremental improvements that Volvo made over the cars run. 1993 was the last and most desirable year. Buy one for $1,500, put 25k on it, and sell it for $1,500.)
If you're lucky....I like Volvo's (as a former '67 1800S, '64 Amazon & '72 142E owner) but the 240 series ain't exactly a maintenance free car for a 25K stretch. However, I do commend you for wanting to protect her in such a tank...with airbags!
For the same $1500 a well purchased 1st Gen Legacy wagon will run circles around the Swedish Brick-mobile.
The boxer layout has won me over..due to the superior handling (no IPD swaybars needed due to perfect weight distribution) and super easy access to everything in the engine bay. For example, it takes 20 minutes to replace the alternator since it's located up high & central. Compare that to a 7 hour dash removal for a Volvo 240 heater core replacement. Not to mention the Subaru was built in Indiana, USA!
If I was going Euro...that Audi 200 wagon is sweet....I've seen it around my neighborhood. Sheeit, that thing is worth $1200 easy as a parts car even if it blew up in the first week of ownership.
I work on, and have owned, multiple Subarus and Volvos. I've also owned and repaired many other types of cars.
I'm not saying I disagree with you. To me, there is no question; Subarus and Volvos are the easiest and most rewarding modern cars to work on for your average home mechanic. They are also two types of cars that happen to be amazingly underwhelming in terms of fuel economy and performance.
But, the same liabilities that come along with some Volvos (Dash dis-assembly for the blower or heater core is a perfect example) are reflected in the liability of AWD complexity and headgaskets in 90s era Subarus. Both cars have unique design features that make specific repairs extremely frustrating. Both have specific parts that are absolutely ridiculous to replace and fail regularly (rear wheel bearings in First-generation-Foresters for example.) Both cars also have features that make other repairs a snap; the huge engine bay of the 240 means an alternator can be changed just as quickly as it can on a Subaru.
For the record, I've replaced a blower motor in a 240 (Same as heater core), and headgaskets in a 97 Outback. I'd rather do three blower motors than do those headgaskets again.
I've helped friends with high mileage Volvos and Subarus keep them on the road, and I've seen an equal number of disasters. For every FI issue in a 240, there is a Subaru with a diff about to let go. They just really aren't that different. I have friends with 300k Foresters, and I've owned a 300k 240.
But, it just depends. To me, It's really hard to categorically say one is better than the other.
$1200 low mile Bandit 600. Probably sold by now. I should be on this, but I just don't have room in my garage:
$1k for an old connie with high miles, cute ad:
Pair of 150 Benlys. Do want.
Thanks, but I don't want to get anything for her with over 200K and unless they are giving it away.
Nice find on the bikes...............but I wanna see more cages
Low Mileage KLX650.
good deal if you want a little bike. Not mine, just saw it while looking around. I am in Issy during the week and looking for a project and came across it.
could be BS but, who knows.
WOW...that's clean!!! ^^^
I've seen this posted more than once, I am not sure if I saw it in Portland as well, or just in Seattle.
I find it *really* hard to believe it is still for sale at that price if the ad and photos are accurate.
I called on the one in Portland a few months back just like this, no title!
