I have 2 clean NB shells, but neither have titles as those stayed with the drivetrains to go with the exocets. I will do some looking in SC to see if I can find anything for you.

uggg that has to stink.

It looks like for about $5k I can get a really low milage car. I've see some with 24k on em pretty close to me. But if I get a cheap shell I could replace all the rubber seals and such.

I just looked at an actual map to see where you live. God damn its far away. I am heading up to MD/NJ this coming weekend. I was going to offer to grab that roller for you, but then getting it from me to you is just as much of a pita.

I think it would be "doable" all except for the VIN on the firewall on the actual chassis. That is the one that would probably be a pita to get swapped.

I bet it would fly in Arkansas. Here you need lights, a windshield and well that's it. They let anything on the street here.

I've looked at that one like 4 times and missed that it had a hard top. Thanks for reminding me.

So far the best deals are:
01 auto with hardtop $4k clean title 154k
99 auto with hardtop $3k clean title 180k
04 msm (my old car) $5k salvage 90k
00 10ae $3k salvage 110k

All but my old car are 3+ hours away and no one will send me under body shots lol I should have my savings moved around next week to actually move on one of em.

Remember that the autos won't have LSD's.

Is the 5k for your old car the buyback from insurance?

I currently have a msm diff in my green car I can transfer it.

No I am still going through a settlement process with insurance. If i bought the msm I could sell the motor and stuff. If I bought a 99-00 I could drop it in my car and have a cheap miata to sell. I can't make my mind up.
