That's a lot of money for those! I wouldn't offer more than 500 for both without really looking them over good. Are they locked? what kind of shape are the floor boards etc. They look pretty rough, especially the hard top.

Tell him you will tow away for FREE, and if there are problems getting them out, then he may have to pay you ... :D

Rough, very rough. I realize one can spend a whole lot on a project vehicle, but for crying out loud, I never ceases to amaze me what people think their junk is worth. A grand for both assuming there is a whole lot of parts you can use.

Can I have an English translation?

Are you figuring the total cash outlay or the net cost after subtracting the tax deduction for the one you are donating?




:rolleyes:

if you buy them both for $800 and donate one with a tax deduction of say $500 on that one then you true cost will be $800 minum the value of the other as a tax deduction. Say you are in the 28% bracket then you can deduct say $140 on the value of the one you donate, if you itemize. I'm no tax guy...only trying to say they airn't worth a whole lot unless you can get creative with your taxes!, which you may be able to do with the doantion.
