Wendy Meets Waterloo Labs

After months of scrounging the internet for the cheapest workable car we could find we have successfully underbid a single mom for Wendy - a 1990 Oldmobile Eighty Eight Royale for only $300. She reminds me of the car my parents had growing up, except it doesn't have spilled frosty on the front bench seat and there aren't pennies jamed (or peanut buttered) in the seat belts.

Look for more to come and what we do to Wendy on our adventure to make a perfectly drivable car a whole helluva lot less practical but way way cooler.

Jessica from South Austin

In our pursuit to help the economy by contributing to the cash for clunker cause we have been trying to help someone get an old car off their hands AND give them $300 for fun. To our surprise no one wants our money. Check out one of the responses we received:

lol... it doesnt sound rough like that... its all cosmetic... did you really think you'd walk off with it for 200... nice try tho... maybe if i said the engine were blown or the motor is f**... but seriously...
thanks for the offer but i will decline...

If you are in need of getting rid of a rusted pile of metal that can slowly move down the road on four tires and would love to see it in the next video as well as be $300 dollars richer let us know.
