leaving the country, this is not the right car for overseas, a Jeep Wrangler would be more like it

i don't make a habit of putting 30 large in a car then selling it for a 20K loss.

If I were even close to being able to do it I'd be all over this. Would be a nice drive back along the Gulf Coast.

Wish this were happening in another three semesters when I could call it a graduation gift.

If I sell all the bikes, and the Miata and parts I might be halfway there...

I know cause i did the same **** and ended up 30 grand in the hole and wish i could have found a deal like this when i started
But everyone thinks they have the secrets to do it cheaper... Ha!

You are tempting me SOOO badly to put my V8R swapped car on the market to get this one and stuff some cash in my pocket.......

That's exactly it, though. The majority of people on this site would rather build their own car -- and even if they decided they'd rather have a better, pre-built car, then they have to take the risk of liquidating their own car and accumulated parts and hoping your car doesn't get sold out from under them while they are selling stuff off.

I'd be close enough in price if I sold off all my Miata stuff and some extra toys that I've definitely thought about it. But I'd sure feel stupid to sell off half the parts that I've found good deals on and then log on to mt.net and discover you just sold the car.

Have faith, you'll find a buyer. Somebody who's already built a turbo Miata, sold it, wants another, and recognizes a good deal.

not sure, maybe another month or so

lots of tire kickers...lots of LOW LOWballers.

I won't sell this car for less than $12,000 on principle, so please don't bother sending me emails offering me $10K

If i need to i'll ******* part it and make $20K if it don't sell before i leave i'll put my boy in charge of dismantling and putting everything up on ebay/here, every nut and bolt and **** all these low ballers.
