Default My new DD! 95 Ford Contour

Well with gas prices and everythig i picked up a new car. It is my uncles sisters. she got into a wreck back in september. I go the car on wednesday for 200$ and he towed it to me. The airbags deployed and the front needs some work. It has around 140k Miles on her with an automatic tranny.

I will post some pics later on today if i get the chance.

The car went under a truck.
it has the 2.0 DOHC and manual windows and locks and such.

I have the battery at work charging and flip the fuel cut off switch and she started right up. The worst part is the interior. They have had the driver window down since the accident sitting outside. I asked why he didn't put it up he said the battery was dead. he thought it had power windows fucking idiot. It needs a good detailing.

Parts it needs:
Both Airbags
Windsheild
Front bumper cover
Hood
Headlights
Marker Lights
Header Panel
Grill
Airbag impact sensors
Hood Latch
Maybe a core support. I may just try and bend the old one back.

Sounds like a lot and it is but i should have it done soon and fairly cheap.

I called my local yard today and they have everything but the impact sensors, hood latch and core support. I should be able to get it all for 300$

I also picked up Motorcraft plugs and Fuel Filter and a new PCV valve form work. It has newer tires on it too which is a plus.


i will try to keep this updated as much as possible!

Well the car is giving me hell.
I got a header panel and headlights and grill plus a hood and front bumper and radiator all for 185$ And i didn't have to pull any of it!
Also they are getting me airbags and a windshield and marker lights cheap.
I love having the hook up!

But i got all the old parts off and now need to replace both fenders do to my patience.

The core support is giving me trouble. I hooked up my tow strap to the explorer and tried straightening it out and it worked at first till it ripped the metal LOL.

So now i need to have a new one welded in or cut the old bad peice and throw a new one in but i am going to have a shop do it.

So far
200$ for the car
31$ for plugs and fuel filter and pcv valve and dielectric grease
185$ for hood, front bumper. grill.header panel.headlights,and radiator
total 416$

I can't wait to fix the Ranger to make it my "commuter car", LOL!

Sounds like you got a score as far as a cheap DD to fix up.
