Well. Bought this not long ago on this very forum. Turns out I've got too many cars, and this one has got to go. It's a stock 4-AGE with a loud exhaust and a lot of the weight stripped out. In the month I've had it, I've changed the alternator, added a set of BF Goodrich a/s tires (<500 miles on them), stripped some more weight out of it and put polyurethane bushings on every front end suspension joint, including the steering rack mounts. Comes with 1 and 3/4 sets of rally tires, a set of slicks, and 2 sets of street tires. Also a tire trailer. Does Autocross, Rallycross, PDEs or it can get you to work. The best part of the car is the shifter, which is absolute butter.

Interested in trading for a good Porsche 944 turbo engine or parts, ported rotary engine (to replace the 12a in my MGB when it inevitably dies), Mazda RX3, Ford Ranchero, Suzuki RE-5, some other Ford, Old BMW motorcycle, or something Italian or French. Or any other oddball trade, I'm pretty open.

Location: Dayton, Ohio. Email: crameken(at)gmail(dot)com

New Price: 3200

Gee, that looks familiar. Sorry she didn't work out for you, hope it's just too crowded in your house (see what I did there?).

I'd be interested in taking back those slicks on white wheels if you're interested in $100 (about what I paid for them). Apparently I'm buying another MR2 soon.

EDIT: your "other images" link is one photo.

Damn. I wanted this thing the first time around, too. But unfortunately I already know I have too many cars. GLWS.

Link fixed.

It's a nice car, and I wouldn't hate keeping it, but I didn't build the thing to begin with, and I don't really have an emotional attachment to it. I thought that was what I wanted, because if I didn't care if I ruined it, I could drive it that much harder on a track. Well, turns out I value my own safety too much [read: I'm a coward] to really drive it that hard, and I don't like it enough to spend the money it would take to sort it to my preference. I've already got a project and a half (more if you count keeping an '85 BMW up to daily spec), so this is just one car too many for me. I don't want to let it sit, which is how my 951 got so bad (previous owner let it sit two years with a blown engine, I'm already up to 5 months with minimal work done).

Forgot to mention that the miles are under 115k.

Jerry: If the new buyer isn't interested in the slicks, I'd be willing to sell them back to you, otherwise I'd like to keep the package as together as possible.

Understood, I was the same way when selling it. (Damn, wouldn't mind having that TRD oil cap back. Even swap?)

Bump because I think I've priced it above the market and I made an adjustment.

Well If you are at all interested in a volvo 242 b23 with cage. I need a DD with a soul. This civic I am driving is draining the life out of me.

Bump. Still interested in a weird trade. How many rust free AW11s are left?

Oct. 29, 2014 12:47 p.m.

is a logbooked DSM (talon TSI, AWD turbo car) with a clean and clear title weird enough?

(I'm tired of AWD)

Logbooked and clear title? Like, drive it to the track, go racing, then cry when it's broken and I have to tow it home?

Yeah, that's weird enough. Understeer scares me a lot more than oversteer ever did, but I'm certainly in for pics and info. Shoot me an email.

Never did get a response for that. I'm looking for something with a bench seat in the front.

Nov. 5, 2014 2:23 p.m.

sorry hadn't seen the response, I'll get an email with photos out this weekend, the office has been busier then normal (hence only 10 or so post a day the past week or so ;) )

Interested in trading for a 1980 Subaru BRAT? Runs, drives, turns, stops- doesn't do any of them particularly well. Rusty but not beyond saving.

Shoot me some pictures. I've been kinda looking for a small truck to haul an engine or transmission around.
