Now I'm at the point where it's going to start to cost a bit to replace things. I need new tires, there are multiple rust holes that will need to be dealt with, a seat belt is stuck and won't come out, 2 windows don't open (I'm hoping that's a fuse problem and I already order a new set of fuses), I need to at least test the brakes, and probably a lot more I haven't found yet. I was wondering if you guys thought it was worth it, not just monetarily, but in general, to get this guy up to full working condition. Let me know what you think, thanks!
As others have mentioned, the rust would relegate it to a parts car, or a gofer type of local hobby-type car. Esp since the rest of the car will need a lot of $$ and labor time poured into it to get it up to snuff as a driver.
