A good friend of mine had his car stolen recently and currently rides his bike 5+ miles a day back and forth to to work. He's an ex-marine and has had a tough go of it since he got back a few years ago. I'm looking for a cheap, somewhat reliable car to help get him through the winter. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

my dad's selling his 92 F150 for about $1K. I think it needs a line from the tranny to the cooler, but other than that it works quite well. He's the original owner and its reg'ed and on the road. I think its got somewhere near 150k on it. He uses it to plow his driveway and go to the dump.

Thanks for getting back so fast. What do you mean by "a line from the tranny to the cooler"? Also, where is the car located?

its a hose from the tranny to the tranny cooler behind the radiator. I think it has a small leak. I believe he was still driving it so its not dead. I can double check of you want.
Its up in Merimack, NH. Its got some old Apine stereo stuff in it. whoever buys it, I get one of the amps as a finders fee

Thanks again. I am looking for something a bit closer to home. My friend lives on the Cape and I'm on the South Shore. But, let me know if it's still alive.

You can bypass the trans. cooler (just tie the two trans. lines together before the leak). Especially if he is just going to drive it in the winter. Cut both lines, install rubber hose to connect the two lines, hose claps. Do it to the lines, and on the trans. cooler side (to keep crap out of the cooler).

or

Just cut the leaky section of the metal line out, and install a rubber hose to connect things back up. Then cooler is still part of the system.

Pretty quick fix, and cheap.

i have a 89 isuzu trooper, 4cyl, stick, 4x4. it has around 50k miles.. i bought it wholesale from my work (dealership) it has some rust around the rear quarter, and the underside is pretty rusty but its all there. i drove it last winter, 4 wheel drive works mint. interior is pretty much mint. everything works

last winter the clutch pedal went to the floor. i know the clutch still has life in it, theres just no pressure in the line. possibly a bad slave cylinder or maybe a leak in the line (rusty). there is also a hole in the rubber gas line located right next to the tank, so once the pumps on it leaks a good ammount of gas. if your friend is interested, just throw me like 500 bucks or something. the truck starts right up and its actually driveable, prolly needs a couple hours and a $200 to make it right.. im in raynham, 20 min from the cape, 30 min from south shore..

well since he plows with it, he wants the line repaired. I'm sure for normal driving you can get away with a quick fix like that though.

Oh well. I don't have access to a tow and he doesn't have the money to fix that.

rjp: What about this GTI?

He's been trying to sell it. Send him a PM or something. I'll tell him about this thread when I talk to him next.

The small used dealer I contract for has a 1989 Audi 90 Quattro 5speed, I think 120-150k miles (can't remember exactly), gray leather, sunroof, pearl white that he wants to get rid of for $1000. Very little cosmetic issues, missing one headlight squirter. Only issue is brakes. May possibly need a brake cylinder or has a leak in a line. I plan on taking pictures of it for the Audi boards this Saturday if you're interested. PM me if so.
