I just finished a round trip drive to NH during a hurricane to look at and ultimately buy another full-sized v8 RWD station wagon.

It was drizzling the whole time, except when I pulled into his driveway it started bucketing down, and continued until I left his place to drive home. That was probably the universe trying to give me a hint, but I continued regardless.
It is a 2005 Dodge magnum, with the 5.7L Hemi, and about 195K on the clock. There are dents on the passenger side, but only one rust bubble on the rear wheelwell. The interior is dirty but intact, and it runs well.
I paid all of $2200, plus another $100 for him to deliver it the 1.5 hours to RI for me. Obviously at that price it has issues. There is a small exhaust leak, likely from the flex section on one/both of the front pipes. The check engine light is on for an o2 sensor (probably due to the exhaust leak), and the brakes work, but don't inspire confidence, so probably needs a brake job. It also has a terrible cold air intake with the sensor held in with zip ties, so I will be looking for an OEM intake or less shitty aftermarket unit.
This is probably a terrible decision, but likely to be a fun terrible decision.
