    The sedan! Nice.

    Sold May 1st 2015
    Doh!

    Mind me asking: did you at least break even in your ownership of it? I assume the value of these cars is going up.

    Yup. I did. I even added the parts cost. I probably could have sold for more if the door was the way it was.
    Its honestly the only thing that bugs me about the car. Except cost of ownership..

    I played with it cause i wanted to.. Not cause it needed it.

    But I was looking at going to the next level... At a cost of $4,000.00 for me on the road. Tune up cert etest timing belt fuel pump misc. and dyno. + appraisial + 407 bill....

    And then uprating to 500ps another $4000.00 and $1,500ish to fix and blend the door..

    So I was almost spending $10k on a $10kcar ( bc landed, unregistered still lots of hoops to jump thru)
    that i was into for $16k ( after parts and maintenance and transportation )
    But then trying to list and not lose on a sale?!??? Probably not.

    My insurance is not great cause one of my brokers sucks and left me without coverage and got hit. (My volvo)
    And so that + RHD import + skyline + ontario = $$$$ bend over a spread..

    Too many headaches, in emissions land... If the police werent such nazis over sports cars here on top of raping us on insurance
    Id still pay to play... But to buy into a club just to be harassed, after LEGALLY doing everything.. No.. Im not playing.

    I love RHD dont get me wrong. I just dont like "GTA"'s bull****.

    Value goes up at 15yrs and 25yrs ( cdn and usa)

    If i buy japan auction cars in the future it will mainly be for cheap 25 year old cars.. And sell to usa cus

    How many JDM cars have you bought? Did you handle importing/customs yourself, or did you buy them already here?

    Buy me a Honda Beat!

    (Just kidding.)
