    Does anyone know of any people who sell cars with no engines?

    I was talking to some people yesterday and they mentioned that insurance companys might sell cars which were stolen and had the engines removed (a common issue in honda's and acura's).

    Seeing as how I own an automatic, and was looking to sell it to buy a manual, I figure I could probably save a few grand for the swap by buying a car with no engine / and / or a non-running engine.
