Today, I bring you not one but three wagons that are all in Atlanta, all with a $1000 asking price each, and all seem to have owner-inflicted damage and need significant work but all have the potential to be something interesting at the Challenge. And I don't have time to deal with any of these myself, but somebody here may have time for it.

Up first, we have a 2005 Volvo V50, the victim of a failed attempt at off-roading and in need of a transmission.

Second, we have a 2003 Passat 1.8 Turbo, which is probably the victim of a failed attempt to crank up the boost a bit too far. On the upside, it's got a manual transmission.

Lastly, we have a 2002 Subaru Outback, the victim of ignoring a radiator leak for several months. Seller thinks it just needs a radiator and an O2 sensor, but my money would be on needing head gaskets too.

Lil Stampie and I do mental CL Challenge builds as our bedtime story some nights.

Tonight's build was half budget wagon. 

He chose this:

I chose this:

I claimed win because I'd have budget left over for nitious.

Probably the same as me and crazy women, they are drawn to me like a moth to light.

That is at least the third or fourth time he has listed that thing on eBay.  Started at $1650, IIRC.  If I was in a position to drag it home I would already have a 4.0 halfway swapped in by now.

I am fixated on finding an e46 wagon as a new DD, and came across what looks like it could be a capable autocross wagon: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/cto/d/1991-civic-ef-wagon/6656767924.html
