    sell it all and get a nice practical car
    you're getting to that age now

    better to get it over with now than to spend all that time and money just to part it out in a few years

    If S2000 is practical for your life style and weather conditions that seems to be a good option, otherwise i would consider a more practical car for every day driving.

    Sell everything else.

    sell it. the del sol looks like shit anyway.

    an s2k is the exact opposite of a del sol. in all the better ways. rwd, more power, newer, blah blah blah.

    having a project car for your only vehicle is never a great idea. i found out a long time ago that a nice reliable dd (even if it doesnt look cool or nice) is so worth it. if you shop around you could pick up something reliable for 2-3k, and keep you del sol project.

    on the other hand a nice low mileage stock S2000 will be a lot fun.

    i didn't call it ugly, i said it looks like shit. lol.

    paint the car and sell it. you will get more for it. sell the engine, turbo kit, rims, separate. you'll get more for it. should be upwards of $7000 total. good start to an s2k and turbo kit. :D

    Good choice. Isnt that a little high for the GSR? Thats almost Type-R pricing.
    hmotors $2900
    tigerjapanese $2990

    everytime i think about giving up and selling the mirage (always for sale, for the right price!) i realize that my mirage, even the POS it is, was built with alot of TLC (curse words, thrown wrenches, and busted knuckles) and according to mirageforums is one of the top 20 in the world.

    to me that is huge. the locals dont seem to share the same opinion, which i am completely OK with.

    ah, then again, everyone and their mother builds a honda... why dont you come over to the light side? for the price of your built GSR you can have a mirage, AWD, pushing 300whp no problem.

    Go drive an S-2000 first. Keep this in your head the entire time: "I will be driving this car through pot holes, traffic jams, stop signs, yield signs, and doing the speed limit at least 90% of the time." On your drive, drive it like you would a daily driver.. Start, stop, do the speed limit, note the RPMs in city driving.. And realize that the rpm range that you can use without breaking the law is putting the engine right at 60hp.

    You can't use an S2000 on the street the way it was designed to be used without breaking the law. period. Kinda crappy. Now, if you are going to be doing lots of track days, then have at it!
