Default Free car '97 850 T5 Wagon- Ithaca, NY

My friend would like to get rid of her 1997 850 T5 Wagon. Attempts to sell have been futile. IFC doesn't want it. Make a Wish car donation hasn't responded. So, if you would like a free parts/fixer upper, and are in/around Ithaca N.Y, contact me.

The car problems:
locked up rear wheel,
cracked windshield
bad starter/starts when jumped, dies when cables removed)
See Garage.
First come, first serve

"bad starter" sounds like a bad battery to me... any idea on the locked up rear wheel - brakes vs bearing? quite possible it can be that the emergency brake shoes have separated and are rubbing (pull off the rear disk to find out... if so, you can simply remove the bits) or can be a frozen caliper - you can pry the pads inward with a screw driver to see if that frees up the wheel)

If only I had a trailer and a truck to tow...Not to mention Ithica is a bit of a hike from midwestern PA :/ I could use an OBDII parts car, epsecially a T5 wagon...
