OMG im so in love lol. really though. i seen this car on craiglslist a few times before but i thought it was a scam so i didnt even to bother calling, even when i had the whole amount . but once i was looking to sell my car and seen the ad pop back up i decided to give them a call. i fought like a mother to get them to even answer the phone. lol they only answered it like 4 times out of 40 calls, they were getting a real high call volume lol. so im glad i got their address the 1st time they answered an went to their house a few times. its a 95 imp i checked when i went to go see it. i snapped a pic of the vin an combined it and it came up wx3. i paid 1500 for a pretty good imp. the 5 things wrong with the car at the time.
1. the trans fuse was blown
2. the door lock fuse was blown
3. the coolant T needed to be replaced as it broke in my hand lol.
4. need a water pump now
5. salvage title but i dont plan on selling it soooooo
i changed the fuses and it shifted perfect from then on. and the coolant T. THERE WAS A BRAND NEW ONE SITTING IN THE CENTER CONSOLE!!!!! literally brand new i opened the plastic, so the car cost me NOTHING to get going. there is really no body damage all seats are ok sept the driver sear and door panel. no cracked windows but the 2 front windows need rollers, engine has 163k but its still on 5w-30 oil. so not really any wear in bearings. runs quiet and all electronics and mechanics work. i thought i was going to be into at least 900 bucks to get it going as i bought it without even seeing it drive an inch or run for more then 2 minutes. shes sitting in my driveway sleeping because i dont have any more money i literally spent all i had but its all good. anybody wana donate a water pump lol. heres some pics of the old gal an my old gal
