    This week on Money Pit, we take a look at answering the age-old question: Is buying someone else’s project car a good idea? It seems like a good way to save some money on aftermarket parts that you would end up buying anyway, but it can definitely be a huge can of worms. Come along as we inspect James’ new project car to see if he made a good move or just flushed his cash down the ol’ money pit!
    We have a new channel!

I gave $1800 for a GT-S converted SR-5 '86 Corolla Coupe with a blown headgasket; tld;r have since pulled the motor (in the process of rebuilding...having a hard time deciding on cams and pistons, but have a Weber intake set up with DCOE-45's and a throttle linkage already to go in with the engine once it's all back together) the wiring has been stripped, so has the interior, and she's about 30% done on the body going all the way down and coming all the way back (did I mention the windshield was busted too...and the hood was munched and I grabbed the last replacement hood that pick-a-part had all the way up in Laci, Washington; I'm based in central Oregon)

Unless your a mechanic who can diagnose all the issues before hand I would say screw buying a project car, just build one yourself, less worries about what the dude before you messed up

Throw out bearings are durable on these cars, more than likely, clutch out "whirring" noise is the transmission input shaft bearing. Would love for you guys to stop by: the premier AE86 facility on the West Coast. CM Autohaus / Battle Garage RS Fremont, CA.

IMO buying someone else's p.o.s. project car is pretty sweet. I just got a 94 s10 and it was someone's project and it's pretty badass. I definitely suggest it, just make sure you bring someone along with that knows a thing or two about cars. Lol.

Huh, except for the oil leak sounds like he bought my car. I'm gonna go check if it's still in my driveway. It's rumbly, squeaky, a bit loose in the steering but otherwise a solid, reliable vehicle. Oh, but my upholstery is all new so I guess he didn't steal my car.

I got a 86 Fiero that I’m working on honestly doesn’t seem that bad getting it repainted, a/c compressor fixed among some other small stuff plus buying it I think I have around $3,700 into it, plus it’s given me a bit of a opportunity to learn more about cars and something to talk with my dad about.
