I have inherited another impala. 00' base model, but the strut towers in the rear are poping and are cracked from all the rust. I am debating on waiting to find another good body that needs a 3.4 and trans and swapping the powertrain out.

Or...I could part the car. The interior is in good shape and I have a ton of new parts on the car.

Part it out, or buy another car that is in mechanically poor shape with a good body...no use keeping the car if it's that rusty. If I still lived in an area that used road salt, my car would probably be too rusty to be on the road anymore.

Yes, those are the options. I still have my 02 impala, but a family member just got a new car and the dealer didnt' give her any money for the car so I gave her 500 bucks for it.

If you plan of parting it out, I'll take the ashtray and the rails it slides on. What color is the interior?

So I think I'm just going to weld in new metal and rebuild the strut towers. The car is mechanically sound.
