if its been sitting in a field for year and hasn't run, lowball them, b/c chances are they just want it gone. I'd offer a few hunderd buck for it.

Also I've had good luck coming to them with cash in hand and your half of the transfer papers already filled out and signed.

If its been sitting there for awhile I would say low ball them.

I saw a truck on someones lawn, I went to look at it, he came outside and I noticed another one in the bush behind his house....not forsale....I ended up talking him into selling me both of them for 1000$......

I think he means he was gonna spend 1200 on something else, and he might be able to get this for peanuts...

Dude cash isn't needed for your first attempt at ownership of this fine piece of american rust just go to your neerest autoplan agent and do a lean and title search once you've found out who owns it you can apply for the registration of it based on the fact it's an abandoned vehicle it takes 30 to 60 days (ICBC waits that long for a responce from the last registered owner) if the last known owner doesn't step up and claim it then it's yours free minus some paperwork fees
