    I would say, nice show car. The only way your going to start making some money back on it (if you haven't already tried) is to start entering competitions and getting cash prizes or appearances in magazines or something. That or find some rich young rice pattie & show him the crazy mad Vtaaak yO with the ultra tite SUBWOOFER that make 40hp with each dB! :harhar:

    cars are the worst investment ever.


    whats the most you would pay for that car if someone was trying to sell it to you?

    you should always assume that whatever amount of $$/time/effort you put into a car, is 100% lost.

    your best bet cash wise is to part it out, and return the rest of the car back to as stock as possible. throw a maaco balck paint job on it.

    you'll get 4-5 for the car, and you easily have more than 7k in parts there i would say...

    car riding a little uneven :huh:


    most of your mods are just show mods, you really have zero power to back it up. IMO 12 grand is good for that car. Theres no way anyone is going to give you even 40% of what you put into it. As said before, if you want money, part it out.


    OH, and this belongs more in the general disscussion forum. :moved:

    ehh...i told you so.

    I think that was my figure 12k at most.

    I could make more than 100% profit on my hatch. But that's different I only paid 900 for it and got most of my shit cheap, it's not a show car though.

    But like everyone else said just part it out.

    imo you wasted your money, should have put it into a car that could go fast.. not how the doors flip.

    better off just keeping it and hoping to get 40k in respect. I dont mean to hate or be disrespectful but show car's are the most retarded thing you can do

    I sold my car..I could only get $11K for it...ANd yes i learned a lesson..Show cars suck..Im sticking with POWER for now on...but i do have to say, the person who bought it has it made..To spend $11K and get all that was put into it is crazy..All he has to do i spend like 5K and the motor will have respectable power..Still heavy as shit though...
