Drive the NB daily stock - enjoy the AC. Give it a few months and see how you feel about it. You will get nowhere near what the NA is worth so its not even worth selling. I was in this exact situation a few months ago.

I'm so confused.

Wait wait..... you'd sell the NA for $6k?

I'll be down there this weekend to come pick it up



Oh yeah, WWYD........ I'd keep the 99 sport, prep it for STR and DD it. Keep the NA as is, have it as a toy/track car.

with all the recent sellers wanting 5-6k for their naturally aspirated barely modded NA's in the classifieds lately, I don't see how you wouldn't get asking price or close to asking price for your car. unless there's **** wrong with it no one knows about.
but unless you plan to heavily mod the NB (like you did with teh n/a) I'd keep the na.

Put your NA up on eBay for $8k. That'd still be a big gain over what you want after eBay fees. I did the same with my last race car and definitely got more than I would have locally.

IMO having two project cars is a formula for car stress given you've got a family with one kid and self employment. I'm self employed, have two kids, a project car and can only find a couple free weekends a year to go racing (in somebody else's car).
