Default Where's the best place to look for an older STI body for a project?

Ok so I have a new STI that I have done a bit of work to but don't want to get too crazy (build the motor) on a brand new car.

I have always wanted to have a project car and am finally at a place in my life where I can do one but I don't know where to go to look for the body to start with. Is there a site or something that specalizes in that or do I just need to look at the normal used car sites and look for a low ball that more than likely has engine problems.

I always kind off wanted a hawk eye but I was also thinking of trying to find a RS coupe to build but those are rather hard to find so I think I might be better off with the STI.

Any thoughts would be highly appreciated.

How about the whole car classifieds here?

EDIT: I see you're already cruising threads there. Nothing peaks your interest there?

The first problem is that you're in Florida. So for every 10,000 STi's sold in snow states, there's 1 in Florida. The next is that all us in the snow states have to deal with rust. Third is that specialty places that you'd be able to find what you're looking for will NOT be selling cheaply. So you probably have to simply take your time and look through general for sale ads in your local area.

wait for guys selling dog old crappy STI's for 50% of new prices.
Let them realize month after month that they aren't worth that.
And then once you sense they are getting a grip on reality make a realistic offer.
