It's a waste of money, Max, and that will get worse as the years go by. Why are you even thinking about this? You can't get a license right now, anyway.

Its practically free. And it's a classic. I can sell it to a dealer for more than enough to get me a good car.

How old are you? Are you legally allowed to work or have a license? If no, then don't bother.
Once you get a job, maybe your junior year of high school, then look at a car. For now, invest your money.

The only way to really get rid of it is to cut it out and weld in new metal.

you can sand it down and repaint it
But the broken words in the description are hard to read.
