i need your opinion.. you might not like it!
 
so as we all know the 89 civic SI pwns ST..
i was browsing some cars and there is one for sale in my city and he is willing to take 700 bucks for it and it runs great..

i love running the foci but can i pass this deal up?

If its what you want to do go for it. Make sure you consider all the money and everything you will need to have set aside for both cars.

well if i get it, it will be a co-driving car that me and my GF will be driving, so the cost is split in half.

i know that the driver is a big part in it being good but i'll eventually get there (hopefully) i just think the price is right, it has 220k on it

They do make quick autocross cars.

It sure would be nice to have a car to race only. That way if it breaks on Sunday, you still have a car to drive Monday. The price seems right.

see, two points that are on my "Reasons to buy" list.
one on my "not to buy" list is i want to rep the focus! even if it isn't the best.

bringler26 04-26-2010 08:23 PM

Just do it with the right parts and a good drive those cars dominate. The price seems really fair too.

ill chime in with a -

you just bought your magnets :p

i keed, but for real, they do make nice little track cars, they can be built up for not a lot of cost too...
i duno, its up to you... advice i would give would be not to split things with a significant other whos not a wifey... i can only see bad things in that situation if things go south...

lol i'll still rep FF on tha hahnduh!!!

i see where you're coming from, but we've been together for 4.5 years and are most likely getting married.

Ah good point ^^^ I would also agree. If you do split the car put in writting what will happen if she leaves the picture, or even dies. If (god forbid) died her parents could take the car from you to sell it, unless you have it in writting.
