So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets:

2000 dollars profit to flip the car??? I don't think so unless your time is worth nothing. How many hours did it take to fix all the problems on the car and how much did the parts cost. Doesn't sound like a good deal to me.

I don't live in the United States so apologies if I'm mistaken, but how is a car that's in *relatively* good condition worth 500 US dollars? That's just absurd. I live in Southeast Asia where the mean income is low, but even there $500 for a whole darn car is unbelievably cheap. Someone with a decent wage here can buy 10 of those cars with a month's worth of salary, flip them and sell for $2500-3000. America is weird...
