was just wondering what people are giving for a decent metric car to start building their racers we are in the rust belt and they are getting hard to find one that the frame is not shot on

what year do you want i can set you up with one. i can get you camaros, firebirds, monte carlos, buicks, malibus. i know where you can get birds and camaros cheap. there is a junkyard that deals only in them here in southeren ohio. i know where there is a few wrecked monte's at and i could possibly get them cheap. just say the word. i know several of the local junkyard owners around. 2 of them race at the track i work at.

i don't need one i was just tring to see what they are going for. i hooked up with a guy the other day and got the rest of the parts i needed all he has is metric cars but most of them have bad frames the good ones he is asking 450 and he strips it for you. i thought i was in heaven when i pulled in the place he has about 25-30 at his place and more at a buddies house

i got an 81 sittin in the back yard, it is my brothers. it is rusted some what in front of the rear wheels. it is an ex turbo car that has a 301 2 barrel that can be ridded of very quickly. yes that is the yard i am talking about just east past chillicothe on route 50. you cant miss it there is a big sign and you can see all the cars.

The most I have ever paid for a metric was $75.00. One I bought even had a good tranny.

by the time i put gas in my truck get a room and food it would be cheaper in the long run to get one here lol. we have so many tracks around here and nobody can run camaros so a good metric goes fast there is about 150 cars within a 100 mile radius running on the same nite so thats why they go for so much at least i can sell the shot frames to the mod guys and not get hurt to bad

he said it can go for the right price. any ways my mom wants it out of the yard. i asked him about selling it for a race car and he said it could go for the right price he might even through in a spare trunk lid for it with a spoiler. sadly i live about 20 miles west of hillsboro so i dont make it down that way much but i am looking the number up on the internet. i dont believe i can find it. if you could find the number i would like to know it. they will probably have some 79-81's. i asked my brother already for racer17 and he said it can be loaded on the trailer for the money. there is a guy who wants it that did a whole bunch of stuff to it when he used to own it. he is my brothers friend and he had it for almost 15 years when we got it, he is always saying he is going to buy it back but we never see cash. remember these important words "MONEY WALKS AND BULLSH*T TALKS"
