Default Putting a search out for a horrible yet drivable insight

Buddy and I are interested in doing the gambler 500. I suggested an insight. He's on board. Plan is to gut the IMA system, lift it, and remove as much of the body as possible.

Anybody have a tweaked/rolled/trashed insight that runs and drives?

Please. Somebody has to has one that was t-boned, rolled, rear ended, but still driveable. Take off the bumpers and wheel skirts and any other parts you want. Just want it driveable. going to make it into a side by side offroad vehicle for the gambler.

Might post your price range. Plenty of running Insights on Craigslist under $1,000.

You don't have to find a wrecked one - you can find one with cosmetic wear and tear and a bad IMA for under $1500 then sell off the parts you don't need to recoup some of your money.

I though it was to "Spend less than 500 bucks for a vehicle".?

We have no idea if it is a spend less than $500 for a vehicle.

Addvanced never mentioned anything about $500.

I know of other low budget projects like 24 hours of Lemons.

Never heard of Gambler 500.
Sounds like Indy 500. And Indy 500 is 500 laps.
