    If you think this thread might lead to your car getting stolen, do not reply...

    But, How much money do you have in your car? If you sat down and added it all up, not counting maintainance stuff, what do you think the total would be?


    For Example:

    My little brother and I figured out the other night that He had almost $18,000 in his 1990 CRX, counting the price of the car...

    and as a result, it runs 11.9's....

    anyone else?

    Essentially, I was paid $1587 to run low 13's.

    '97 Miata = 21k for the car + 6k in parts

    '92 Civic Hatch = 2.4k for the car + 7k in parts

    '92 Talon Tsi = 2.6k for the car + 1k in parts

    '88 Civic Hatch = 1.4k for the car + 0k for parts

    $1000 for the CRX, $350 for the shipping is what I have invested at the moment.
    Only $200 saved up right now. I had $5000 but it had to go to my parents in an emergency.

    I estimate about $10k will be spent total on it.

    if my calculations are correct I've spent a total of......$4800 thats including my turbo kit, ls/vtec set up and rims.

    $4800 (in mods) + $16000 (car) = $20,800
