1993 Plymouth Duster

It’s a non-running $50 car that I pushed-bumpered home as a project. It’s a 3.0L OHC V6, 5-Speed Manual, and that’s about all I know about them. It’s Bright Red under the moss and mold. I’m going to fix it up and sell it off. Originally it was supposed to be a racecar, but she wants a Miata instead. ;) The gamble has worked out great so far as it RUNS!!! Yay for me! Here’s the budget list so far: $50.00 Car $10.00 Affidavit $10.00 Notary $29.47 Title $2.73 Change found in car $44.09 Ignition Switch $71.99 Battery $12.20 Oil $3.79 Oil Filter $14.38 Wiper Blades $47.75 Registration / Tabs (1 Year) $35.00 Junkyard window and wheel/tire $5.00 Car Wash (to use the pressure wash feature!) $330.94 Total Investment.
