That Pacifica I Got, Yeah It's Garbage

Couldn’t even use it for a demo derby. It was free because it had an overheating problem (wiring to the fans was shot), so I never looked under it when I took it.

The front subframe/engine cradle has rotted through, and the passenger side has separated from the rest of it. The body and rest of the floors are fairly rust free.

Oh well, guess we’ll hoon it at the abandoned quarry and scrap it when it dies.
