    sell it separate and make more, but takes more time to recoup your money...

    put it up for 7 and take 6500

    I'm located in New Jersey,
    I so don't want to sell it but as most of you know these projects are just never ending money pits. If i keep it i'm looking at another 4-5k in parts i need to finish up the car( wheels, tires, slicks&track wheels, suspension, EBC, tuning, tuning, tuning. I also still have all the stock parts that came out of the car, from the stock valve springs to the stock rods. I don't know i'm sitting on that fence that B was on after doing the SOL project, it's just so fucking hard to turn my back on a projsct that i've been working on for 2 1/2 years.

    eventually i hit the point where i was like "holy shit... i have a 1994 honda del sol that drives like shit, feels like shit, but is pretty fast... and i'm out a shit load of money that i can't recover by selling it...."

    the car is only getting older and less valuable... plus the modified honda game is nearly over in my opinion, everyone seems to be getting out of it and realizing that there are better things to put money into

    It's not that there's better things to spend money on, it's the new Tokyo Drift buy a 240 scene! (and the high Gprices..)
    Besides, if we didn't spend our money on our cars, we'd be buying houses and other unnecessary things... or on a woman.
    I don't think the modified honda game will ever be over, just like the 40 year old dudes who build Novas to run 12s and have to trailer them ... in their blood.

    I'd pay $6k for it if it runs/drives perfect.... maybe a little more if it looks good.

    I spend 90% of my money on alcohol, having fun, women, and my car. The other 10%, I squander.

    Well in my current situation ( I lost over 50% of my income about a month ago) This was not a forseen situation so as of right now. my bills are taking up 120% of what i'm bringing in so selling thw whip is just a quick fix to clear up some shit to level my buget. i don't know, i should just pick up a stock motor for a few bucks and then just sell the engine and turbo ish.
