Default Considering buying a transplant NB. Yes or No?

I'm at a crossroad wherein I'm deciding whether I should put money towards fixing things in my car like paint and body defects or I should buy an NB (which I always wanted) and swap over the go-fast parts. I found a deal on an NB with good condition exterior for less than $3k and I'm really entertaining the idea at the moment. Should I?

It is all about which car will get you laid faster. Miatas are known to be gay cars, if you drive a dirty ugly looking miata you will considered a dirty ugly looking *** got..

Buy the NB if it looks good, but stay away from girly looking colors such as pink or purple..

I've been considering the same thing for a couple of years - buy a decent NB, swap in the go fast parts.

I think the plan has now changed slightly - Maybe in 2 years, build an exocet with the stuff that I have now, and then buy a used ND when the first ones start coming off lease sometime around 2018. Drive both.

Do it...I'm doing the same thing with my rust-infected '99.
