    I need everyones oppinion:

    Trading my wheels 15 inch rota slipstreams for a 92 civic hatchback shell

    the rotas are white and can be seem on my www.cardomain.com/id/tphan4

    and my friend heres the deal with the shell

    1. the paint is faded
    2. its automatic
    3. motor is blown
    4. dent in rear quarterpanel
    3. may need a door

    positive - car has minimum rust and Im in New England and thats rare and hatch has interior

    but basically a bare shell that needs work
    only problem I have is have no wheels

    Id make a poll but Im more curious as to your reasons so lemme know

    i wouldn't do it. if it was a five speed, then yeah i'd be all over it and would trade for it, but since it an auto then i wouldn't even consider it. thats just my 2 cents.

    He needs a door and there is a dent?

    Pass it up. Sounds like a headache.

    interior is fine...suspension is stock..hasnt been touched....no accident in the car...just the owner blew the motor and has been trying to sell the shell for $500 for about 6 months now and almost no one wants an automatic car....

    and to the person before I dont have steelies....would love to buy some if anyone has them local to Mass?

    and yes a shell for wheels....guess he needs wheels and cant sell his shell???

    Fuck yeah, jump on it. Go buy some steelies or something. Besides, the auto-manual conversion can't be that hard.

    You should be able to find decent cheap rims for it right away. I can lend you a set of old 14" Acura alloy rims for the short term if you go for it.

    if your up to a project, then do it cause you can always get another set of rims. I agree its a steal (rims for a shell)

    do the trade: ~400
    fix the body work: ~ 200 ish if you can score some body panels
    maaco paint job: ~250
    92-95 dx longblock/motor: $200 tops for a complete swap.. these aren't worth shit. keep it auto with the stock tranny. :p
    misc things: 200 bucks.

    sell the car for 3000-3500 to some college chick:
    3000-1200 = 1800 profit.
