I did put a little note on my sig that I am accepting offers for my car. Everythings for sale in my opinion and I figured that's the least painful way to advertise. I spent a lot on the car this past winter, but I'm really looking for a place to live now and the car isn't getting any attention for the little things I still need to install.

Here's a fairly comprehensive list of what's in the car. I'll update it when I think of other things. I have been trying to get a good estimate of what it's worth, but I'm not having a heck of a lot of luck. At the very least, I have a place I can look to sob over the amount of money this car has yanked from my wallet:)

I like to think I put this car together to be respected by a lot of people instead of just one crowd. I get a LOT of comments on the paint, although I think it needs some TLC. At least I can say it's all original paint.

I am still working on the hood issue. That will be resolved before the car is sold or stored for a year(at least).

The way I see it...I either let it sit and pay off what I spent on the car slowly or sell the car and work on getting my own place a heck of a lot sooner. I am not interested in parting ANYTHING out on this car. It has a good title. I am also not interested in selling ANYTHING that is not bolted or screwed to the car at the time of this post. If it goes...someone gets it all...plain and simple.

Anyone have insight on what she's worth? The car has 128K on it now. There's rust starting on the rear subframe, but that'll be cleaned and painted in the car soon enough. A tiny bit on the door bottoms like any Midwest car.

I would probably put the car for sale at 6,500 without the Vortech. I'll entertain offers with or without the Vortech Supercharger.

Your never going to get what you want unless its from someone who understands what you have in it. Unfortunately, most people wont or dont understand how much time and effort it would take for them to do that to a car.

You will take a hit on whatever you paid. But Im sure you know that, if not you'll soon understand.

Im in the same shoes as you. I have a car parked at my Moms with well over 20K into it and no end in sight.....it will probably be parked for a year or two soon. I cant see sacraficing everything I put into it for way less than what I put in.....if that makes sense.

Whatever you choose to do make sure it makes you happy. You have a lot of hard work into her, dont regret your decision.

Good Luck!

(Post a pic or two. I have soem Jamex springs in the garage awaiting install.... :) )

Well, I'm not looking to work miracles with mine. I know it's not perfect, but I can stand up for the fact that it's had no panel replacement and it's original paint.

I'm trying to sell the SC set-up on modular depot right now. Honestly...if that goes I will think about selling the car itself soon after. I am working on a no start issue, but that will be fixed tomorrow or at least diagnosed.

Even if nothing sells for the right price I have decided to park the car in storage and change insurance to fire/theft/vandalism this month. Not only have I lost interest, but I'm just ready for new things.

your best bet for getting the most money is to part it out. mods are worth more sold individually instead of as a whole.
