I Bought a Cheap Twin Turbo V8 BMW at Auction with a Strange Message on the Windshield

I bought this 2000 Cadillac Crystal Coach Hearse at Copart Salvage Auction with Mechanical Damage. The bid was super cheap but in the end it ended up costing over $1000 to get rid of it. I also bought a Twin Turbo V8 BMW 550i with a locked up engine, I tried starting it anyway.

    Hi Sam, as the hearse had a spare, why didn't you put it on?

    @Phil Shepherd That's funny! Luckily I never had that happen when skydiving but you'd probably have about 2 seconds to decide before you hit the ground. Lol

    What I gather on the 550i, if the valve guides and seals are the problem, what good is a new short block? How long will that last before it craps out again? If BMW redesigned the guides and seals they should have done a recall to install them before the engine blew.

    IT's totally worth it to look for as much as possible original-used parts for the hearse, from one of the car junkyards, and also some would be new parts (aftermarket or OEM), but once sorter out, you end up with kind of modern hearse, if you have a funeral service business. In this case, you invest, in a car where a frame damage is scary, so it you work this, andmanage to have it nicely sorted for 60% of the used retail, you are a champ. You don't worry about demolished value, as you buy to serve, and if it has been working 5 years when you decide to to sel it, you will give the VinWiki story, so byer know he is getting an old, but a daily driven car, which is a goodsign it keeps on working, with regular maintance.

    The writing on windshield is not uncommon, many buyers try to dissuade bidders by sabotaging the vehicle in some way. Writing on it is easier and cheaper than actually screwing with the car in some other way.

Any recommendation on where should i let it go? I know the dealership will definitely slaughter me but would selling it to carvana but a good idea?
