My last demo car....
« on: August 27, 2008, 11:24:36 AM »
Here is my last demo car! Its a 74 Squire wagon 2.3 4spd. Pretty rusty in the floor and behind the kick panels. I bought if from my moms neighbor for $350, and it had not run in 9 years. I drove it a mile to her house with no problems. So far I have a 2nd and a 1st place in the demos with it. It has 1 more run in it next month, and it and I am done. Ill have pix when its done. We run fully welded rules on a large track with brutal hits on dirt. After 8 years of those hits, my body just dont take it anymore and Im only 26 :surprised:

You could have gotten most of that back by selling the parts that they make you remove.

Too bad.....

I was going to, but the last time I did on here, nobody came thru with the parts I had so i didnt feel like taking the time to strip in carefully. Oh well. If I ever get anymore wagons (which I have had 7 in 4 years) Ill save parts since Im not demoing anymore.

The issue is that there is a limited market for those items, and if you are willing to be patient, or list them on ebay (more exposure), you will get money for them. Otherwise, you make all the other ones worth more.

i picked up a wagon identical to that this year... it was way to rusty to run though.... we pulled it out of a pasture.. let me rephrase that, we first pulled the front stub, then the rest of the car out of a pasture..  i had to shred it....
