Have to sell it. :<

Depending on the rust, you may want to start with an Arizona or California car later when you can afford it.

I'd love, love, love to see this car saved but if it is rusty....Good luck, and keep us posted.

Hard to tell from the pics, but it might be possible to pop a lot of that out from behind. Crawl into the trunk and see if that's double metal back there. If not, get a hammer and dolly. Have one person hold the dolly and the other hit the dolly from behind. You won't get it perfect but you'll minimize the amount of body filler you need to use. You might be able to do a similar thing with the fenders, but you at least have the luxury of changing them with a better set (assming they're available).

EDIT: Thanks for the new pics - they do help. Looks like you'll have to dissemble the interior a bit to get at the rest of that quarter panel damage. Don't just sand the rust, eliminate it, cover it with rust encapsulating paint, and you'll probably have to put a thin wipe of filler there to fill the pitted metal. As for the fenders, yeah that's going to be pretty tough to get out. Try to find a good set of fenders before deciding if it's worth the effort to fix the ones you have.

d'oh should have looked at the sig...well for the money you'd spend (assuming from the sale of this car) to buy something else...I would suggest saving that money in another way and fix up the Buick. If it has less than 15K on it, why not restore it little by little?
