If you are in search of a donor car, add your name to this thread. Include the year range and model vehicle you are looking for and your zip code. This will allow others to tip you off when they come across a viable donor in your area.

Looking for a Viper, any year, good condition, under $1000. I'm in Lexington, KY, but will meet you half-way if you're within 100 miles or so. I'm in a hurry, so I'm willing to get half the cash together within a month or two.

I might be able to help you. My sister-in-law is getting rid of a 86 toyota pick up. runs fine, just rusty. She cannot locate the title so she is working on (suposedly) getting a new one.

She wants $500 for it.

The truck is in indy.

Non-running XR4ti for sale in Dallas. Everything looks good, red paint, grey interior, euro grill and headlights. Something happened to the engine and it lost oil pressure.

$800.

I can show it the weekend of Feb 13-15.

I may have already pointed this website out but apparently, I need to again.
http://www.jaxed.com/cgi-bin/mash.cgi?cat=cp
It searches craigslists and ebay and a couple other random sites too. I ignore the ebay listings and use it more for searching multiple craigslists at one time. It might not catch everything though.

i don't even know what donor to think about?
a miata?
a s10 Like the Stalker builds?
a SVO mustang? Pinto? Volvo?
I think the miata is most complete as i can take the whole thing and it has discs and a world of aftermarket support.

a Solstice GXP might be nice but $$$$

i am in SoCal
