Seeing this thread is the only reason I haven't put my car up for sale.

I used to think that modded cars sold for about half of what they cost to build. Now I'm thinking it is more like 1/3.

It is a CRIME that this car isn't sold yet. What a sweet sweet build.

For real, but if you do part, i want your intake and trans. I don't want you to part though, it would make me cry.

This almost sounds like Nick is gearing up for an offer.

^ Sounds that way to me too. lol

Like Jared said, it'll sell, it'll just take time if you have it. I'd absolutely love to pick this up because it's defintiely worth the price and I miss my turbo NA. However, buying an engagement ring for my g/f and looking to buy a house removes money from the fun fund for a while, well large purchases anyway.

Took me 35 seconds to get this information.

Googled "car shipping"

clicked on the second link (superstitious)

typed in a zip code for FL and a zip code for traverse city, MI (using Zip code lookup)

Hit "get shipping quote"

https://www.dasautoshippers.com/Quot...aspx?special=y

Google is your friend. I did it for you because I want this car sold, complete, cuz it's beautiful.

Sorry, I meant a shipping company that someone has used and had success with. A website doesn't make them professional. But thank you anyways! Going back and forth in my mind, I'm terrible at this because I am a pansy.

I understand that. But if there's anything I've learned in 2 months of perusing this site is that they really only respond to research. You may want to get a few quotes from a few different places and pose your question more like "I'm looking at _____, _____, and ______. Of course only after searching and reading a few reviews about the places. It shows that you're serious because you're willing to put some research into it before asking a question.

Unless you're not serious.

But you should be. If you've got the money, quit being a pansy and BUY IT.

based on personal research and random people using them with positive results, this place seems to be the best compromise of cost and service.

ask around for tips on using them.

I think cross country is about 2000 dollars give or take.

last week i get a guy who seems serious about buying it, local guy.
calls me sets up appt...calls me later in the week, says he has money ready in a day or two...

meanwhile i get another guy who makes an appt to come see the car, i tell the local guy about it, and it all falls apart. The local guy now is not answering his phone/messages.

the other guy low ***** me after i tell him i'm firm on the 12K and that's where it ends.

still a couple guys interested later in the month, if that doesn't pan out, it will get taken apart when i take off.
