my definition of complete is different than yours, but that car could still be a good deal for a donor.

that would be pretty easy fix I think. The damage is high enough that the unibody is likely still pretty straight. If you replace all the panels and stuff yourself and have a shop check the unibody and do the paint you could probably rebuild it for <$2500. $3,500 for a '99 isn't horrible.

I can go take a look at it if anyone's curious about specific parts. I know the seller.

If this was local, I would be running over myself to get to his place cash in hand asap.

Torsen, running 1.8L, blah blah.

Edit: Just saw the motor may be toast. Not as great deal, but still ok.

If that was near Atlanta it would have been sold to me 5 minutes after it was posted.

that car can be salveged...i used to do this for a living
but only if one was to do it on his own, not worth it to have a shope rip you off

Gokou, the poster of this is not the owner of the 99. But To my understanding you will need the halfshafts, drive shaft, axles to swap it into your 93, im currently looking for a torsen myself as well.
