Default Anyone wanna trade cars?

I've been trying to sell my car, but as I figured, its turning out to be harder than expected. Now that I have a new job that will require a 100mi a day commute, and not wanting to rack up miles on my R32, I want to pick up something that is reliable, good on gas, and cheap. This also means that my car really needs to go. Thinking about this, I figured a stock miata or one that has only been slightly modified maybe even turbo'd (mine is a bit over the top ) could fit the bill. I'd prefer a NB, but if you got a nice NA it does'nt matter. I figure my odds of moving my car may increase if I'm willing to trade, since most interested parties don't have much money to work with and/or have a miata already that they would need to sell to make way for a new one. Depending on what you have, we may have to work out some deal in terms of money on top or me taking some parts off, but we can deal with that when the time arises....Anyways, I'm done rambling...if anyones interested let me know.

I've got a 1993 Volvo 240 Classic ... since it's 1332 or 1600 made I'd say we can call it even

I have a 1997 Ford F250 7.3 Powerstroke Crew Cab 4x4. 373k miles, not a hiccup. I'm the third owner and the first two were close family friends, both lived 30+ miles away from the nearest town so that's where all the miles came from. LMK.

I've always had a soft spot for those trucks...but I dont think that would work too well for a daily driver with the distance I have to go

How bout one of your vettes!

I could never get rid of my truck but how much cash would you add on top of the Miata for the C5?

Trade you my R, straight up

I'd like to have your car, but I do the same 100 mile round trip everyday for work deal. So I would need to find a DD, maybe a cheap civic?

Im thinking about sell the R come Spring, but I don't think I would be in a position to get your car especially since I have the 97 to deal with. Although it would be awesome to sell both my 94 and 97 get yours and then have a DD as well. That wouldn't happen because no one would buy the 97 lol.

Ummm, 15x7s, FM front sway, hps pads, fresh paint. Otherwise stock, got paperwork dating all the way back to the window sticker. The damn thing was $19k back in 94 lol.

Im wanting to try to sell it as an estock car, I figure someone like that would like the R better.
