I've vey got a family member who needs some help, and I'm going to do what I can to help him. Family will always come 1st.
Because we've got a lot of toys I am thinking about what should go- the boat is a family toy and the kids/ friends love going to the lake so that's out.
My new KTM has 9hrs and was $10k (but worth probably $8k now) but I ride every other weekend and love it... So it low on the list.
The 335i does not get driven that much and I put it up for sale yesterday. Plus, was planning to sell it and the 2500 to buy a new Ford 1st qtr 2016.
The truck is necessary until replaced.
The Miata... I loved the project and outcome but the reality is that I can use it 4x a year until 2017 when it can be street legal again (due to age/ emissions). I have $24000 in building it (ish) and owe nada. It's probably the best opportunity to assist without tapping into savings or retirement funds. Bummer, but I'll get paid back and can build another one.
I'd sell the car for $20k. Here are some numbers:
1993 Miata, clean shell with fresh paint and factory hardtop-$3500
LFX and AY6- $2500 (2012 Camaro w/ 40k)

The car weighs 2280 with a full tank of fuel, has a flat torque curve and will be an amazing track beast. You could spend $24000+ and take 6 months to build one yourself or save $4k and all that time.
Pics are in my build thread. No corners were cut in this build.
Car needs to be dyno tuned as its running in an ultra safe/ rich mode currently (expect C6 z06 acceleration). Once tuned, the vette will be a fading spot in your rear view mirror (will pickup at least 50hp).
The axles were too long which is being corrected now, otherwise she is ready to start depressing owners of much more expensive rides.
Expensive for a 93 Miata, no doubt. However, when compared to other cars with the same power to weight ratio, it's the deal of the century. If the BMW sells 1st, I'll keep this car.
