How to Buy a Budget Friendly Project Car


2,9 млн. показвания269

    Learn how you can buy a project car for less than the cost of a new cell phone! Project cars are great for learning how to fix a car and when you are "done" (project cars are never done), you can be proud to drive the car you fixed up!
    In this series eBay Motors challenged me to buy a 24hr endurance race car for the 24hrs of Lemons race series. The car I chose had to be fast, reliable, and under $500!

    52. AikiYanka

      I don't know what are the requirements of the race and what are your plans after the race, but things I can think of to sell: All the other seats; Headlights, fog lights and turn indicators; Air conditioner (if you don't need it for the race); Aerial; Bumpers; Passenger seat belts.

    53. adithya manu vlogs

    54. Techtrip

      thought the limit was $500 in the lemons 500

    55. Eloines

      Project car triangle is so accurate.. Bought an old Audi 100 for cheap. It's definitely fast but reliable, not yet. Takes a lot of work to get it there.

    56. Raptor Jesus

      Try to sell seats, you can drop weight and get rid of penalty

      I'd recommend the firestone firehawk indy 500 for tires very good tire especially for the price and has 340 treadwear!

    62. Brian lefebvre

    77. Brandon Custer

    78. Trx Mc

      toyo tires are really reliable

    79. Borge170

      I dont think the back seats count as safety so you can sell that

    80. Zakula Gavrilo

      Knew that would be e36 or e46 hahah

    81. Ho'oponopono

    87. tntchest Youtube

      Couldn’t you sell the passenger and back seats to get rid of the 4 laps?

    88. Jose Campos

      The wheels Chris sell those

    89. Patrick Mallory

      Good Luck Chris! Looks like the event will be a blast!

    90. Gopnik McBlyat

      If I know anything about cars, go with Michilen or Toyo tires, depends if you want endurance, or grip, toyo is better on grip, michilen if you want longer tread time, also sell the other seats

    91. Areg Mirzoyan

      Somebody watched Top Gear (Clarkson) trying to complete an endurance race in a Beemer 3 series.

    92. Solomon Katz

      Are you able to sell seats that are not the driver's seat? Cause if you could, that'd easily get you under 500. But if not, you could mark up the four items you wanted to sell by 10 bucks each to make it. You'd still be slightly under eBay value.

    93. Peaceful

      Hi Chris i was wondering if i should get a toyota celica 1990 as a project car they are pretty cheap at 1000$ and i mostly wanted your insight at it.

    94. That1NativeGuy97
