How to Buy a Budget Friendly Project Car

2 857 963 Megtekintés

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!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • I have been following the 24 hours of lemons for some time. Although some other channels have done vids about the experience of racing. This is the 1st one that is willing to talk about what goes into building the car itself. Excellent! Chris, have you thought about spares to take to the race track? Motor, gearbox, diff? Are you not allowed to sell the old wheels? This is the story that got me to subscribe to your channel.
