I went and checked it out and it would crank but had no spark.. brand new coil, brain box distributor cap, wires.. but still no spark..
not even from the distributor cap.. so I ran a lead from the battery to the coil and it made a clicking noise down the wire from the coil..
not sure what it was.. any ideas?? I want to try to get the car running tonight.. thanks

wait...the whole car is only $50? If so, just buy it...who cares if it runs or not. You could probably part it out for a little more than 50 bucks

Dude you should just buy the car and if anything use it to store poop or something. Because I have never ever ever heard of a car for going for 50$ that sir is amazing!

There are plenty of $50 car's in VT. Most of the time you get what you pay for. Maybe try a new hallsender(sometimes the secret cure for the $50 non-running VT dub). http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
