93 VX - Complete parts car / rebuilder plus extra rims

I used to post a fair amount on this forum and learned a lot here back when it was gassavers. This specific car was the topic of many discussions on these threads.

This is a 93 civic VX. Mileage in excess of 314k. (It's on the third cluster).
It's rebuildable to a daring person. But for the rest of you it's a parts car with many duplicate parts including 2 complete sets of straight VX 13" rims.

The good stuff:
The car has fender skirts and a camback
The car has a working MPGuino
Average fuel economy was between 50 and 65mpg (depending on how you drive it/slow highway/etc)
It has a wiper aero thing
It has a grill block
It has some coroplast underneath in the back
It has an internal passenger mirror
It has an internal radio antenna
The steering is tight and straight
The engine runs well.
The trans shifts well.
It's got a sweet cassette tape on the roof.
It was featured in a few youtube MPG videos. One had a ton of views so technically the car is a celebrity.
The car was featured in a music video. So yet again, it's cool factor is high.

Current known problems:
Exhaust leak in middle pipe (the long one with a resonator)
Broken Driver's door handle
No rear interior
Tires, soon. (it comes with 8 wheels and tires... 4 are JUST inspectable)
Brakes, all around not great. Existing brakes stop the car but need pads at least. (likely more)
2 wheel studs bad
Glove compartment broken off
Driver's seat is ripped
Drivers carpet looks like it's been driven 314k miles.
The exterior paint is tired and basically 80% rattle canned (with skill, mind)
and needs lots of touching up.
The drivers exterior mirror rusted off. It was a very small motorcycle mirror and now it's kind of a bulky motorcycle mirror. (so you can drive it home)

Now we're on to the rust.
The trunk has rust holes. These are pretty repairable because there's a lot of good metal left.
The rear tailgait is probably past repair. Comes with much better green gate.
The Rear fenders have been done at least 2x's since I've owned it. They are starting to show rust again.
The rockers are just passable right now. They wont be for long.
There's one actual rust hole in the outer body behind the drivers door

The overall rust situation on the car is not great to fair. It's saveable if someone wants to put the time in. Otherwise, again, it's a great parts car.

The car comes with a 2-3 parts cars worth of parts. The rough list includes:
1 Complete good D15Z1 block/lower end
A VX (could be cx, I can't remember) trans
Spare ECU
Manual steering rack
Like 4 throttle bodies
2-3 IAC's
1 Complete Throttle body
1 EGR valve
3-4 distributors (most have one problem or another)
A decent reusable clutch
8 total VX rims
Cv axle
Underhood wiring harness
1 extra Wideband 02 sensor
A ton of tail lights/marker lights
A fuse box or two

I have a bunch more pics I can send.

There's really a lot more parts than listed.
Parts are now in the back of the car for transport.
Car is located in Augusta, Maine. You can drive it home if your state allows for "transport" plates like Maine does.

I'm looking for $600.

No reply, so it might not be anymore?
