Rat is cool... so far.
Might Buy A Car, need opinion.

So I just found a local 1992 accord that I am thinking about picking up to replace my cursed one. Here's the skinny, its a DX but has EX rims, the engine has a bent valve, and the odometer doesn't work. The timing belt broke and he replaced it but when it broke it bent a valve in cylinder 3. I can fix that no problem and I would most likely do an interior swap using my 92's red interior in it. He is asking 500, how much would you pay?

I'd pay the price for it. Just swap your current motor and call it a done deal.

There was a 92 or 93 for sale in my area, almost the same condition, i.e. not running and bad body for $1000. So for $500... Like Henry said, just swap over your current motor.

If you do that, you'll have a spare motor to build/work on.

It can't hurt having a spare car, you can either use it as a parts car or gradually fix it up as a project or a daily and use you other as a project.

If it's not horribly rusted, that's a good price. Better than your bent one. That will never be 100% right.

It has more than $300 worth of parts on it, so regardless, you got a deal!

The body is great aside from the mirrors and minor paint flaws. No major dents. The interior needs some help, but I am planning on redoing everything eventually.
