so I found this guy selling a sand rail for $600 and he said it has everything but the engine. and the trans is good. but he said it has been sitting for three years, and my question is what kind of money do you guys think that it would take to get this baby driveable and street legal?

I'm thinking tires, maybe seats, engine and shocks?

where can i find a complete vw engine for sale? I tried chircoe's .com but they didn't have complete engines.

I was also thinking about it and there are a lot of little rubber parts in the front suspension and steering and I would have to replace them after being out in the sun for three years eh?
