    I'm guessing then you would buy the Blu MINI Jason. It will clash with the great pumpkin. Blu + Orange = :eek6:

    Still not been sold? That's surprising, hope the right buyer steps forward for you. :Thumbsup:

    Yes and I can only hope DH gets sold before someone buys it out from under me. With what the replacement costs I need to get the Coupe sold first.

    Go for it Mark, don't let another dream car slip away. It's only money & you only live once. Plus I've been told you can't take it with you. Hope I've given you some encouragement.

    Mark, I hope you have DH listed on other sites. M/A is dead, dead, dead!

    Mark, have you considered parting DH out and then going the CarMax route or re-listing it as more of a stock car? Do cars sell on NAM?

    I'm sorry you are not having much luck Mark. With all the mods you have it will be a lot of work to de-mod your car. You'll have to figure what your time is worth to do that.

    Here is hoping for a good sale for you. :Thumbsup:

    (what follows is my general thoughts on trying to sell a modded car and not specific to DH).

    1. You can wait for that one person who shares your exact same vision and is willing to pay what you feel is a fair price. Feels like this is the situation where you kind of want something different but are more than willing to keep what you have.

    2. You de-mod the car (the ones that you expect to be able to sell) re-coup a portion of your cost in a quicker sale, buy replacement, and sell the mods as you go. Feels like this is the situation where you want the replacement and have no intention of keeping the current car, but want to get the most out of the mods that you have done.



    There is a another mindset
    3. You continue to lower the price of the car until someone buys it well below fair value of the car and mods and then you buy the replacement. Feels like this is the situation where you want the replacement and there is truly no longer an attachment to the current car or you don't have the parts to go back to stock, or the time to take it back to stock.

    I haven't seen anywhere how much you are asking for it.

    How much?
