    $400 for my FWD 90 Laser. Turbo was locked solid, and needed some major clean up. After stripping the entire interior and and doing some normal routine maintenance, she back on the road and ready for some mods :D

    I paid nothing for my 1990 GSX 5 speed. Was given to me by a friend. Bone stock car, except for KYB AGX struts and Eibach springs. It even has the stock airbox on it! The transmission was rebuilt and the timing belt was replaced a year ago. I've had her for 5 months, put 3000 miles on it, and have a room full of performance parts waiting to be installed. Having a stock car is nice for reliability, but not as much fun to drive. =)

    Beats the hell out of paying 13k for a used and abused 99 haha. Your car is much cleaner. Why so cheap?

    I paid $4,600 two years ago for my 1995 Talon tsi awd with 110,000 miles. All the mods except ecmlink and 3" gm maf came on the car. It also had a fresh paint job. The only thing i had to replace since i bought it was a wheel bearing... knock on wood.
