Default Winter beater

Just looking for some opinions. I'm looking to buy a winter beater in the next couple weeks and wanted to know if you guys think this is worth $2500.

It's a 211k 1998 civic cx w/ d16y7 i/h/e, ls mesh wheels, h&r springs. Oh and it has a quarter size spot of rust on the hood an a crack in the front lower part of the bumper. The rear quarter needs a little color matching done since it recently had the quarter welded in for rust repair... But it's a winter beater so who cares right?

I wonder if the paint would match up if I buffed the rest of the car out to get rid of the fade?

Looking around out there, fair market value is around $1900 - $2400, with rust repairs and such its really up to you if the price is right. Make sure the running gear is good, bushings, brakes, etc, check wiring for hack jobs etc. If it looks good go for it, but negotiate, respectfully.

- Remember I/H/E, and springs don't add to the value.

Yeah I kinda wish it was completely stock. It's hard for me to judge what something's worth because I'm a car salesman lol. If I took that thing in on trade i'd give $500

Yeah Id be hard pressed to pay that much for a civic ever again, unless its is perfect in on place, body, or drive train. I can fix one or the other but a total repair/hack job, nah, not for $2500.

@ 200K miles I probably wouldn't pay more than a grand for it. But people seem to think their civics are made of gold. The market out here in the PNW is saturated with 150K+ mile civics in various states of (dis)repair that people want a mint for. I think the arguements are it get's decent MPG (somewhat harder to find these days), and it hasn't broken yet (so you know it's reliable) usually no mention of any wear parts being recently replaced.

Ultimately it's up to you if you want to pull the trigger on it, but at >200K there are most likely some bits that will need replacing.

Its just hard to find anything around here without a shit ton of rust. Weather it's a civic or any other vehicle. I refuse to drive a rust bucket around lol. We'll see how it pans out when the time comes to negotiate I guess.

I backed out on the hatch and found this for $1,000 bucks. Way nicer on the pocket! I'll be replacing those horrible wheels with steelies/hubcaps and the nastiest winter treads I can find.

The best is when there is a little piece starting to peel back and it just flaps wildly in the hurricane force winds being applied to it. Has a good sound.
