So i'll be honest with some of the details of the car. Some albeit embarrassing, I rather let y'all in on all the info.
The GT500 was a copart auction. I didn't know that copart offered inspection services for an additional charge before auction. I went solely based on the listing info and pictures.
They did list that the car started and ran at idle when it first came in. I usually have a better display of judgement in financial dealings, but I guess we all lose some sometimes.
Well when I flew in to pay for the car, they told me that Copart policy is that you can't see a car that you won until you pay for the car. I felt nervous about this, but I went ahead with payment because I was already binded by the sale anyways.
Once i went to the car, the interior is pretty immaculate. I did notice that there were two gauges on the pillar. First thought is "This guy dragged the car"
I popped open the trunk. There is a tank in there for Liquid Methanol injection. Followed the hose all the way to the CAI.
Engine looks good. Radiator is still intact. Intercooler is bent.
Found a jumper box and tried to start it real quick just to hear it run. Jumper box didn't have enough juice. Found another box out there. Tried plugging it in. Engine cranked but didn't have enough juice to turn all the way. Started clicking.
Clearly the car was dragged, but now I own it. Debating on if I should just go forward with the swap, or if I should part it out and make a bigger profit. Car is being shipped here as we speak. Should arrive tomorrow or Sunday I suppose.
