Lots of people turn to cars under $1000 bucks looking save a buck or two. Here is a quick guide on how to make some cash (that you can use to buy more rusty boxes on wheels of course)

Plain and simple part cars out.

Step 1. Buy a car. This is pretty much the most crucial step. If you are actually doing this to make money and not just salvaging that blown up buick sitting in your driveway than you need to find a car that people want to buy parts for. eBay is pretty much your friend here and my suggested avenue for selling most parts. In the past I have watched people make money from a variety of cars (my roommate used to finance his workshop with parted out cars) One in particular was a 1994 Honda Accord. Thats right you don’t need to buy a 1939 Alfa Romeo (although that would be sweet) or anything super rare to get good money for parts.

Often times finding a car that is pretty common can be a good thing but be sure to check eBay for the prices certain parts are going for before hand and let that be your guide in making your purchase. Now when it comes to buying the car usually the ones that don’t run will be your best deals and you may even get a freebie if your lucky. (few people want dead cars in their driveway) Obviously the less you pay the more you profit.

Step 2. Tear it apart. The key here is research and time management. Everybody wants to pull the engine and trans etc., but often times it may not even be worth it. Check out eBay or where ever you plan on selling and ask yourself is what these parts are selling for worth my time? Would I actually want to crate and ship this? Is anybody actually bidding on this crap? All good questions that need answers. Honestly it tends to be the nickel and dime parts that can really make you some money. Shifters, speedometers, sensors, mirrors, sun-visors, etc. these parts take seconds to remove and if they are in good shape people are often willing to pay a pretty penny for them, because the only other option for parts like these tends to be the dealers who charge an arm and a leg.

Step 3. Sell The Parts. Once you have determined what you want to sell and pulled the stuff off its time to start selling. I like eBay but swap meets, forums, and other sources may work better for you. If you have done your research you know where to find the people who see value in the parts you have pulled.

Step 4. Scrap the rest. Always factor in that you can prolly get $100-$300 bucks for the rest of the pile at the scrap yard. Usually you will want to haul it there yourself and will probably need to pull the …

rust is one of those qualities that is often elusive and must always be earned. You will never start a relationship with another person (and that applies to personal and business situations) and that person trusts you right away. It takes time and it takes a great deal of care that must go into the relationship that you are building together.

The power of the truth

The fact is that from the beginning, you need to build the foundation of your relationship with the other person. Human beings are not trusting creatures right off the bat. It takes some doing to get to that point. If you look at it from a psychological point of view, humans don’t trust because they have had experiences in the past that have taught them not to.

If a person has had an experience in which they were hurt in some way, why would they walk into a similar situation with an understanding that they will have a similar experience this time. Would you?

Although it takes quite a bit of effort to get the other person to trust you, it is far from impossible. In fact, there are some things that you can put in place that may help tremendously.

    • Create the perception that you deserve to be trusted: Perceptions go a long way. You always want to give the other person the feeling that he or she can trust you. Although you can’t control what the other person thinks, you can have an influence overturning a situation around if it seems as though it is going in the wrong direction. One way to do that is by having other people speak about you on your behalf. You can’t blow your own horn but other people certainly can. Another effective way to get that idea across is by making good use of testimonials. Testimonials can be very powerful and extremely persuasive.
    • Take baby steps: If you consider your ultimate goal, which is total trust from the other person, it may feel as though you will never achieve that. On the other hand, if your approach is simple and methodical and you take it one step at a time, it will be a lot easier to get to your goal. Once you have reached that goal, you will look back and you will probably feel that it didn’t take nearly as much effort as you thought it would. Isn’t that a pleasant surprise? There is no doubt that you are capable of achieving whatever you set out to accomplish. However, getting the other person to come along for the ride is the difficult part.
    • Proceed with caution: Nothing good ever came from rushing (in any aspect of your life). It takes time and effort to get the other person to trust you and to believe in your credibility. All relationships take that kind of nurturing. At least, the relationships that have meaning and value. Everything in life that is worth having is worth
