    Default New Car + old car = Better car

    so a year ago i wrecked a pristine 89 Peugeot 405 into a curb.

    its sat in my driveway since october 03.

    a few weeks ago i found a replacement

    driving home from Miami, about 325 Miles, without a tag, insurance, etc. lol


    New on the Left, old on the right

    new, left; old, right

    *note: the hood on the "pristine" 405 is actually the New cars hood, since its been swapped already.

    paid 1000 for the new one with minor body damage and 1700 for the pristine one.
    that makes 2700 for a perfectly running ugly car and a busted beautiful parts car..
    i say good deal, eh?

    Brett,

    Nice to see peugeots still being found in the states! How hard is it to get parts over there? Why don't you kept both I don't see any damage on the old one? Keep us informed

    yeah, im keeping the old one for parts for now, rented out a storage bay and ill be keeping it in there.

    i havent looked at the old one in AGES and i come to find out that there is an infestation of Wasps in my engine bay!.

    ugh. i hate wasps.

    anyway. it is pretty hard to get parts. but its really easy when you have a parts car
