    $250.00 for my 1991 GS 114,000 miles with a broken timing belt and a bunch of broken valves. The best purchase of my life. Getting a broken one and rebuilding it thought me a lot about my car which is coming in handy now that I am modifying it.

    I paid $800 Canadian for mine at auction 3 weeks ago. It's a 91 laser. I've put in another $600 into it since, and redid the body and intake system. Also bought a new muffler. Looking into a new exhaust system if my budget allows it. It had 150,000 kilometers on it when I bought it. I plan to post some articles of all the mods I've done in the next few weeks.

    1998 bought my 91 gsx for $6500. (I was in the army I was a dumb kid with what I thought was money LOL ) Last April bought my 95 esi for $3450. I wanted a turbo all I could find was a N/T. Maybe one day I'll get a tsi or gst if I find one I'm willing to pay for with a trad of my N/T.

    Got my 95 GSX Auto for trade by rebuilding a 3.0 DOHC for a 3000GT.

    Motor had a spun rod, they tried to put a crank kit in it and a dealer new cyl head. They immediately spun a rod, so when I got it went all through it with new dealer crank, and all the other "speed parts" in my profile. Means I have a bit into it, but its all new. And today tranny went, but got a great deal on a auto trans,x-case, TCU,etc.

    I'll always remember this as the most expensive "free" car I have ever obtained, but I love it so far, and now I know everything that has been done as well as where every nut,bolt, and wire is!! Looks like I am another lifetime DSM'r in the making!!!

    And it isn't a beater either. Perfect leather interior and dash, and needs a front cover (curb damage) and thats about it.

    Picked up a 97 Talon NT (~40k miles) by taking over the payments for my ex-girlfriend, around $4000 about five years ago. It currently has an HRC stage II Turbo System.
    1990 Talon DOHC NT (100k miles) for $1500 two years ago. Now it needs a HG. I think it had a JDM put in it. That's not a good sign given the odometer reading.
    1991 TsiAWD (80k miles) $800 just this week. It cranks but has no spark. Hopefully it will run by the end of the weekend.

    I'll add to the list. 1990 Eagle Talon TSI AWD for 1300, a few mods done already. A lot of fixing to do. It's almost completely in shape to go to the track, hopefully before they all close this year.

    $800 - '92 Eclipse GSX - missing battery and need new turbo, but other than that, not much else except some TLC. Got it from an older guy (late 30's), im the 3rd owner, and well, just needing to get the wiring harness's, battery, and a few other things and i should have it up and running... then when i get my chevy sold, ill have hopefully about $6500 to put into the car, and when you have that much to put into a car, be ready... hahahah.... i cant wait... :D

    I bought my 1995 Talon FWD Automatic with 89,000 miles on it for $4,300. As you can see from my picture it is in nice condition. It was imaculate. It isnt a lie when you buy a car in florida you get it very very cheap. I bought it with absolutely no mods at all also.
