how about this : cars are not a good investment!! there you happy haha

Our car's are considered luxury, not cheap plastic toys like civics and integra's. So expect to pay about 1 to 2 times more then parts you'd see for a civic.

Bought the car sight unseen in 2005 for $7500 with 113K miles. Now has 150K miles and LOTS of goodies. I've got a tracking document saved with nearly every penny put into it. Upwards of $25K at this point, but that includes repairs and the like. Is it worth it? By all means. smile.gif

i spent over 40,000 dollars, including like bolt on maintenance (Distributer, etc.), not including basic coolant, oil change. I gained a little back by selling some stuff. I've changed many things in my celica multiple times even though I had it, (like to test parts).

Lets see, bout her for $5k back in 06. Spent roughly $3k on mods and at least $2k on maintenance. Wound up selling for $2k last year.

Already have $3k into the new car as well...As said before on this site, "cars are the biggest waste of money", but they are soo much fun!

It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.

$13k on the car (back in 2005)
$4k on the Beams swap
$5k on wheels, coilovers, projectors and all the other bits

A few more grand to go on new paint and front seats. Still cheaper than buying a comparable new car through. smile.gif

cars are not an investment really in regards to fixing it up, only in terms of transportation.

for us, they are an impractical enjoyment.

LOL I spent too much too...

2500 for the car, around 5000 for MINOR works...

And I'm going to spend for the next year at least 1500 for re-painting it and 2000 for brakes...And it won't be still enought! XD
