Deb is a waste of time and $$ in my opinion. Sell for what you can get. Save money, and buy a nice car, or just fix up wilhelm for now, and prosper.

Timmeh do whatever you want. But Wilhelm will last for a long as time if you take care of it. Sell deb and do what you want with money. Wilhelm is a perfect DD

qft

Some logic here. Keeping whilhelm maintained you know he's just going to for g as long as your ever going to need him too. Work on (or sell) deb and get her running and play with her (or again sell when running). And then you can do what ever you want with a second car, experiment with silly motors and builds, auto-x it etc and whilhelm will be waiting to haul your ass for parts and to work er'y day

ya, trouble is selling deb in a non-running state. when i meant finish deb i kinda meant do bare minimum to get her driveable, then sell.

TBH the $400 i just saved NOT buying wheels could do it, but then there's the whole "deb is at my mom's house" thing.

so sneeze, apply to some jobs! i'll trailer deb to GR and fix her there if we move soon enough.

also if people don't think i can get $4k ish for deb in driving condition i'll just sell her now and suck up the loss. but omg the loss....

I feel you could get $4k for deb in running condition, but really who knows.

how come you dont just tow Deb to waterford and fix her this weekend before you move to GR? would be hella useful to move stuff to GR in a gutted hatch.

well because....

1) garage is a mess (i'm almost sure, haven't checked but odds are good)
2) don't have parts right now (however there are still things i need to do, like wiring)
3) clayton would have to tow deb (so we'd have to arrange that and what-not)

so ya could probably do it... i'll talk to mr. savoye tonight and we'll see.

i could at least get started.

also i'm gonna throw her up on CL as a "this is a part out, but if you want it all it's $X" tonight. so we'll see how much interest i get. i could probably make more money parting her out as annoying as that will invariably be.
