hey my buddy is going to look at it tomorrow morning. we're going to take a chance on retoring it to "track" status. the motor will probably go since we've got an s52 ready to drop in an e30.... I've seen some wild prices for an s14! what is one generally worth with tranny?

I almost fell off my chair to hear 8G's was fair.

My 84 Dirt car only cost 900, and even that was OVERPAID cause the car was SOOO rotted it was a death trap. the CSC cage was worth 450, only reason I did buy it, was if the car couldnt be slavaged for racing, the cage and the 4.44 LSD was close to the purchase price

Lol the seller is a jerk off! My buddy went down with a rented trailer and a borrowed truck. Took the day off work to get it. He called the guy every day for 3 days prior to make sure all was good and the seller repeatedly told him that teusday was good. He gets there the guy isn't answering the phone. Nowhere to ber found. My buddy left a dozen mesages and not even a reply... Until today. He said he was to busy, and that saturday is good. The guys a scamer jerk, and I bet there is something very wrong with this car!

That's frustrating.

I would guess that the seller has been fielding a lot of questions about the car, and assumes that it is going to sell itself. What the seller may not realize is that an M3 that needs a lot of work needs to be sold at a significant discount due to the price of parts to get one back into good shape.

Even good examples of these cars will drain wallets. Once rust and engine rebuilds come into the picture prices climb exponentially.

Wow. Jkz. OT, but I hope you're not still driving the overpriced death trap.

yaknow, clearly....he isn't interested in the money...to deal with someone like that and not have the common courtesy to give a phone call to make proper arrangements is TOTALLY unprofessional and clearly lacks integrity and business ethics. However, to have haste doesn't help anyone...Let the guy try to sell it and good luck to him. Obviously the deal wasn't meant to be.

I still have yet to understand people.....
