What in the hell are those lake heads thinking of? A blue strut bar on a green car? My god. WTF

Lets not let one bad apple... or should I say, rotton apple ruin it for all of us midwesterners. ;)
This is a fine example of why my talon stays in the garage during the winter.

BIG DEAL!! I love how they make it act like it is such a "DANGEROUS" car to drive. If it is at the end of its life like he mentioned, GIVE IT TO ME!!! Ill take that thing and have a blast with it. That car, with the proper owner, could last another 5-10 years if it was kept clean and keep all the salt and shit off of it. the car is 13 years old for gods sake! Its gonna have rust. I would try to hide it in any way too to try and sell it. Its not gonna just fall apart.LOL LOL

Loved this video ahhaa. Posted on my local DSM forum. They got a kick out of it because we live in a Salty/snowy area and know strut tower rust!

Actually the gentleman in the vid is the owner of Nordstrom's auto recycling, one of the larger ones in the US. So yes, they will part it out.

Sorry to bring this old thread up, I actually bought the hood off this car. It wasn't drivable at the time of the video. My friend put it in the ditch, insurance took it. I actually got a few parts from the car.

I also laughed when he pulled the tape off!!!! I was looking at the first picture thinking "is that duct tape?" And then rip! Classic, so when is he parting out the car?
