It seems in this area everyone is just hyped up for NAs.. People listed NAs (in great condition) for $8-10,000, but theres still NBs (in good condition) for $6-10,000.

So amazing that it fits both 1.8 and 1.6. And that intercooler is bent for efficiency right?

I just want to go smack his sidewalls with a hammer to watch the beads pop off the wheels....

Edit: I just realized, I think this is the first time I've ever seen a GUY duck-facing a selfie.

I just want to sign him up for every unsavory website in the world. I want him getting calls from jamaica and nigeria and algeria and afghanistan and india and uzbekistan and pakistan and armenia and slovakia and georgia and russia and japan and china and australia (hehe) and congo and portugal so he can't understand what they're saying.

His ignorance and asshattedness brings me to tears.

Mint.

He is pretty local. This could be arranged.

"Forged pistons & internals from the factory." I hate people.

Really REALLY cool cars. Total ******* nightmares to own, though. Glass-ish driveline, and pretty much every part, ever, is NLA.

Think of it like a cooler-looking better handling 323GTX, but made in about 10% the quantities, with less support, and equal strength at best.



Put it this way: I wouldn't own one unless i was a bored millionaire. And considering the dumb **** i've owned/currently still own/daily drive, that's speaking volumes.

Yes, it's a rare car, and "restored" but the price is about 20k too high. In a lot of areas my car is in better shape. Nice condition but not even close to worth the asking price.

1974 Inka Orange BMW 2002ti - Over $20k Xtras - FULLY RESTORED!

Quote:
If you're shopping for a 2002, you're most likely after an amazing driving experience and your search is over if you're looking for a perfect one.

This car was purchased and restored by a group of enthusiasts that put a lot of love and hours into it. Every works and looks great in this car, there's really too much to type out but will get it all typed out for the eBay ad next week. Know that the car is fully restored and would change your life! There's no better feeling than waking up on a weekend morning and turning the key to this car.

I have service records! All work done at one shop - Here's a short list or work performed:

Redone front suspension ($2,600)
Redone rear suspension ($1,900)
Front Recaro seats ($1,890)
All moldings on car ($1,220)
Euro turn signal ($800)
Euro headlights ($856)
5-Speed transmission conversion ($2,000)
Full engine rebuild ($5,000)

There's not a scratch or dent on this entire car! There's no noises, clanks, grinds or pops - You'd be very impressed!

I'm not into to waste anyone's time, please do the same - I am flexible with show times, I'd just need to set a solid appointment.

Thanks for looking - Enjoy the pictures!

I'd almost pay someone to buy that and return it to stock. Almost.

1999 Mazda Miata MX-5 10th Anniversary


Quote:
Hello. Have you ever wondered what kind of fun you could have in a Miata with over 250hp? It's a blast believe me. How do you know if it doesn't run? This is a 10th Anniversary Model which comes with the 6 speed transmission, Bilstein's, Torsen limited slip differential, fancy interior, strut tower brace, premium sound and a hard top.

Chances are, this is nothing like your gay neighbor's Miata. Unless your gay neighbor has a need for speed of course! Insult the product and the customer, great salesman!

It has been modified with low compression pistons, ported heads, turbo, and intercooler. All these details!

This car is a project and near completion. Circumstances are forcing me to sell it.

If this car had fresh paint and the necessary ignitor, I would be asking over ten thousand for it. The interior is in great shape. The clearcoat is toast. KBB Private Party value (a lot of nerds put retail) is $7000.00. (good condition) But it's not in good condition, it's in "it's been pieced out around my front/junk yard" condition

No it does not currently run. Cars in good condition run.

$7000.00 for a non-running car you ask? Damn right. Math is on my side.

Let's say you find a good running 10AE with a nice interior and the same crappy paint for $6000.00 (a good deal)

To get it to where this one is you need:
Turbo, intercooler plumbing, ignition, etc etc. Flying Miata has a comparable system for about $5200. Yes, all new, bolt in parts are definitely comparable to your junkyard turbo shitfest
Port and Polish the heads. This will set you back about $500 bucks assuming you pull your own heads off, take them to the shop and re-install. Tucson machine shops...
Now drop low-compression pistons in for $650 in parts (again you do the labor).

You are at $12,350

With this car you are looking at $7000.00 for the car, $300 for the ignitor, and I may be able to get you a tune free of charge.

Splurge a bit and spend $2000 on paint and tires and you have still saved $3050.00! Now that's a great deal!

I also have A/C parts if you want to add it back. Probably will only fit if you remove the turbo

Contact me via email if your are interested in learning more, or would like to see the car.
His slapped together turbo kit is comparable to a $5200 FMII with ECU.

But it has more than 1 cylinder head...it must be a v8 swap. Can't you see it in that photo of the show quality engine bay?
Another 10AE turned to a pile of ****.
