    ok so im buying a used car soon splitting it 50/50 with my older bro, its a car for him to use now as a temp because he is rebuilding another car, and in about 3 or 4 months it will be mne to do what i want wih wether it be re sell or fix or w/e

    so the delima is that we went to see a 1980 jeep cj5....im in love with this car at the moment, but it does need minor fixing9 tun signals dont work and other little stupid things) but he wants to get a cheap honda or toyota so he dosent have to do any work on it......

    i want the jeep to be my project car once he's done using it, it does not need major fixing at the moment, but he refuses.....

    so we are kinda ****ed at each other....:confused: and i dont kow what to do...

    so rant over

    any suggestions would be great! lol

    Buy a cheap Honda, Project cars are something that can wait.

    I'm waiting till I land a decent paying job before I start my automotive project. :)

    What's more important: your relationship with your brother or the car you drive?

    Beware of a jeep with electrical problems...my buddy had one...first it was the headlights, then other things started to go wrong...we couldn't track down the problem.

    I'd go for a car that is running and working...especially as that seems to be the whole idea here. You can always sell it when your bro gets his fixed.
