to OP, i used to do that, when i was in school, you need money to make money, my problem was i would run up my CC by the time i sell the car so i would have to pay it off then and i was back at ground zero, but i made some decent profit...i bought cars at insurance autctions and did what i needed to get them sold, you just have to be patient and not give it away
but it all depends on your market place, when i lived in AK me and my brother in law were in it together and made lots of money...NC has no money, lol

i know a few guys that do that. essentially they are some combination of people who like to wrench and people who don't make enough at their day jobs to have a project car that they want to maintain.

this way they can keep doing the project/fun car thing and don't mind doin the wrenching required to make the money that funds it.

Back on the topic as what the thread title says.

I had a 90' S13 with SR20DET red top that i got for $4,200 put in $2,000 drove it to hard and sold it for $3,500 with blown head gasket. So i lost on that one. But latly i've been scoring on prject cars such as 87' FC3S Gxl little rust and in nice condition for $1,400 and my cali. miata for $1,800. Both of these are going to be sold when done cause rust free cars up here are easy to sell to kids.

So not so much on making profit from car sales but make more tuning and installing parts for people. Seems to be more easy.

If someone is looking to score a deal on a car to flip for profit, a buddy of mine (who is moving out of state in 10 days) needs to sell his Maxima. It's a mid 90's loaded model with leather n junk. Motor is sound, tranny is bad. It includes a second bad tranny and a tranny rebuild kit. **It's a tough tranny to rebuild.** Not recommended for amateur DIY, however any tranny shop will take care of it quick, or you can get a good junkyard tranny.

He wants $600 firm for the car and the spare tranny. He's moving in 10 days. If anyone's interested, PM me and I'll give you his phone number.

Used to do that with Honda engines. Buy and engine for $50, sell for $250. Hell, I even managed to get $350 for my '90 CRX Si's D16A6!
