I'm sure some of you guys have found good deals but knocking on doors or leaving notes on windshields. These 4 squaries have been in the same spot near downtown LA for a while, flat tires, expired tags, etc. But it's sunny SoCal so it's not rusting away. The Inka 02 has M badges (s14 maybe??) and some recaros. The others all look slightly modded too. I wanna start knocking on doors but I'm not ready to do a take-it-all deal. Belong to anyone here?

I just leave a note under the wiper blade asking if the car is for sale. That's how I managed to score my current Euro spec 70 E3 2800 for $300 when I saw it parked on the street in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles six years ago.

Mike Self found one sitting (endlessly) on a driveway not far from his house. It's a fjord squaretail, but rust never sleeps here in the rustbelt. We talked to the owner. Mike told him he'd try to find some one who was eager to tackle a BIG project. It's all there, but neglect is costly here in Ohio. I'd say it will be cheep, cheep, cheep!

There is also a '75 automatic here in Kettering that sits neglected on the driveway. Supposedly, the garage has another '02 plus reems of parts, but the eccentric owner won't talk to me. I spoke to his wife and she wants to be rid of all the '02 stuff.... Maybe Mike can work his magic on this dufus.

I used to want to leave a note or find the owner. Now I resist, keep driving and let the next guy save it.

That's too bad there are four sitting out there like that. Even though rust is not an issue, baked interiors are. My first tii sat out like that for 6yrs and the saddle interior crumbled when i touched it, and the carpet was completely faded where exposed. Black widows and mice also make them their home.
