Learn how you can buy a project car for less than the cost of a new cell phone! Project cars are great for learning how to fix a car and when you are "done" (project cars are never done), you can be proud to drive the car you fixed up!
In this series eBay Motors challenged me to buy a 24hr endurance race car for the 24hrs of Lemons race series. The car I chose had to be fast, reliable, and under $500!

  • You can sell the BMW logos on the wheels, and if you can get away with a CEL, sell the SAC pump, not necessary for the car to run good (mine doesn't have one). The pump alone will get you under $500 no problem

  • Rear seat, Glove compartment, sun visors, rear windows (all of them including the boot), sunroof glass, sunroof motor/assembly, boot lock (just weld or bolt it shut), central locking system, Aircon (pretty valuable, weighs a ton, and takes a lot of horsepower if you use it in race = don't use it in race)... I could go on... there are SO many things which could be pieced out that would basically make a car like this cost next to nothing to race (If you don't count all the safety stuff! LOL)

  • Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires would be what I would recommend. If you need it for everyday, you could also do the Pilot Sport 4S, although you'll give up a bit of dry traction in favor of wear life and wet. Still sticky though.

  • I just bought a 2009 Prius with 192k on it for only $500. I wonder if you know how to fix it? I have tried everything I know, which admittedly is not much with hybrids. The engine starts, then stops and beeps at me. OBD2 is weird and doesn’t read half the codes I need

  • Bro, I used your Mass Airflow Sensor check to fix my 2007 Expedition today. It's been sputtering in idle and on acceleration, so I thought bad fuel pump or filter, but then I remembered this video. I watched it like a month ago. So I unplugged the MAS and the engine did not like that at all, but when I plugged it back in everything was fine. No more hesitation, no more sputtering. I'll probably still replace it. This video saved me a lot of $$ and headaches. Thanks for making them.
