I mean this in the nicest possible way, but maybe you can buy your balls back with $3k.

Why would I spend that money on testicles when I could spend it on something shiny instead, like a watch!

I might have to change the title to $10,000 S2000 Budget... Go.

This is the same way we ended up with a boat. "If it makes you happy."

What do you think I traded in for the Failblazer?
Edit:

I made them let me keep it long enough to swap the new exhaust back out so I could sell it to B15 Sentra.

Only this time. I could probably use some advice from you regarding terminal tackle actually. I'll have to remember to send you a PM later.

I worked from home today so the wife and I went out for lunch. Before dropping her off we got two lbs of shrimp to bring up to her parent's this weekend and while she was paying (this is a shack down on the dock where the shrimp boats come in) she grabbed a card for a local charter guy and gave slipped it in my pocket.

We figure we should pay someone to take us out and show us some of the local shit so we'll be more successful when guests show up and look like we know what we're doing

I'd take you out myself but I want to make sure your first trip wouldn't be your last either ;\) Hell, if you come this far I'll take you anyways. What do you want to fish for?

But I digress...
Sale is pending already on the S2000. He said he'd let me know if it falls through.

Yep. Crossed 213k miles on mine last night. It's been by far the most reliable car I've ever owned, and also the cheapest to modify. With the parts market as huge as it is, you can make them do whatever you want to do on a small budget.



I really like this SN95 idea, but it's going to require time and know-how that you don't have, Adam7.

When you need to hide from your wife in the garage (when you get a garage), then it's Mustang time.


Guess What?

Know nearly nothing about those. Except that when I wanted one, they were very expensive.

I bought a 94 GT with 150k miles back in 2007 for $3k in Charleston no less. It can be done. It was an automatic though, bleh.



also, TAIAM (the answer is always miata) too

Well the wife wasn't as excited about this idea the second time around, so going the miata route might make her see the light. I'm still open to anything really, I just want to take something apart.

My 94 GT set me back 4k back in 2006, with 107k miles, and it was immaculate. And this was also in SoCal, where these cars arguably cost more.

I think the prices leveled off more or less around 3-4k for a clean one. I would not even consider one for 2k, because at that point it's more trouble than it's worth really.

I like Miata idea most, then the idea of mustangs. Is Adam7 wife know this project may need another $1000 plug-in/maintenance?
