If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Looking at buying a beater

Just getting ready to leave to take a look at this. It’s a 1999 Hyundai Accent with 290k miles, a stick, a clear title, and a new battery. The price is $300.

If I buy it the plan is to ice race it (it’s like LeMons but it’s on a lake and some of the drivers have been drinking). It will be made into the General Park, with a South Korean flag on the roof and repainted orange.


The list of issues, as stated by the seller:

  • 290,000 miles on it
  • Crack in windshield
  • Driver window off track
  • Driver door doesn’t unlock from outside
  • Passenger door missing lock on outside
  • Sunroof leaks
  • Needs new transmission soon
  • Burns oil
  • Needs new clutch (cradle? Carriage?)
  • Needs new brakes
  • Parking brake light stuck on
  • Passenger break light out
  • Stereo wonky(but working)
  • Interior pretty dirty
  • Exterior rusty
  • New clutch August 2014

I’m going to try to get it for $200 if it’s not horribly rusted.
