    Looking for a cheap economical car or small pick up. The first question would be models to look for or models to avoid. Used parts availability would be part of the consideration because I would be looking at a fixer upper of some type.

    Second question would be about a car that the engine possibly having a dropped valve. Pretty sure this would be from a broken timing belt. How likely is the motor to be toast on such a vehicle.

    Just questions from looking at craigslist. Found a sharp looking 90 Escort that had a dropped suspected valve. And an Aspire that had been wrecked.
