Im still here I tried everything that was suggested the local paper is usualy good around 30 cars, right now they have 5..

Almost everythig in autotrader has been sold or isnt as advertised...

The police auctions are a few weeks away I cant wait that long plus its 50 miles away I have no transportation right now..

The only avalible cars are the
95 intrepid 127k $700
95 jetta 164k newer tires, exaust, 2 12"jbl and amp $1000
Two escorts not sure the year 94-96? $600
97 thunderbird 139k $1200 (havent got in touch yet)
96 mirage 121k $850 (havent got in touch yet)

Im trying to avoid the escorts, the intreped is beat up a little, Im going to look at the jetta wich might not be that bad if I can get the price down a little..

I have a ride tommorow to the only dealer I havent been two that sells cheap cars..

Coming back from the store I noticed a 91 maxima 128k $1000 b.o. its a little older but max's are usualy strong im going to offer $800..

I was going to go for the jetta till I looked up the price on parts there ridiculous. I dont realy like the jetta anyway but I was under the impression it was decent. Ill probaly check em both out today.

I already have a old rockford "12 but my amp died, I was planning on getting a cheap mono amp and hooking the three "12s up too bad... the other reason I liked the jetta was the newer tires was just in a accident because of dam snow and the maximas tires are ******.

I'll you can pull a little more money, I have a 95 Chevy Blazer with 86,000 miles. It had a small anti freeze leak when I stopped driving it 2 months ago when I got my new car. I'd like to sell it before I leave for Boston next weekend. I'm asking $2500, and I know that is way under book value.

I'd go for the Intrepid as long as the transmission has already been replaced/rebuilt, or you get a warranty. 42LE transmissions rarely last longer than 120K. I had a 93 for a while (well, I still have it, but it's been off the road) and it drove nicely. For the price difference, you can probably fix whatever makes it beat up.
