I'm Old Greg

Hello all!
I'm 54 years old, and one of my hobbies is flipping cars. Not the take-a-corner-too-fast-in-a-Suzuki-Samurai kind of flipping, I fix 'em and resell 'em.

Just picked up a 2007 Pontiac G5 for $800. REALLY good shape, 5-speed, moonroof, dark blue, a real winner. A couple of issues though.
1. The moonroof didn't work
2. The A/C wouldn't hold freon
3. The cylinder head and related parts were in the trunk.

Yeah, that last one was a doozie.

Anyway, I've been working on vehicles of all types for quite a few years. Picked up some tips along the way, and I'm always happy to share.

Welcome to the club Greg. That's something I'd like to do after retirement. Buy low/sell high... What cars have you flipped?

You ever drank Baileys from a shoe?

Welcome, by the way. For $800, that sounds like a hell of a deal - especially given how cheap Cobalt/G5 parts are, and how easy of a vehicle it is to work on.
