Nice car. Not perfect, plenty of signs of use, but obviously well-kept and enjoyed.

The one thing that bothers me about the listing:

Quote:
The 2.3-liter S14 inline-four was fitted with an Evo intake and Euro non-catalyst exhaust system by its second owner.


Did they then ADD a couple cats?

Oops I didn't see the quote. Maybe they are older pics or the seller doesn't know what he's talking about.

Maybe they mean it has a 2pc evo header. Still has full US center section...

At the M3 Cab lookalike - wouldn't a salvage title be irrelevant to somebody who exports the car?

Aside from the e36 M3 4/5, these auctions are going up like we’re still in Monterey Car Week, with the $48 million Ferrari GTO.

I’d wager a bet they go in price in the order I listed above. What does r3v think?

Yeah

They see a rep and go crazy.

How much would it cost to duplicate that car if you had to source it out?

Seems like the local shops charge $10k for the swap (engine/tranny).

Paint/body finish is another $10k....with the hassles of sourcing these NLA parts which people want and arm and a leg for.

Unless you wrench, you'll be into it $20k with suspension, wheels, interior, top and yes lets not forget the donor car which now a days, could be $5k for a decent rust free example that hasn't been beaten to death.

We all remember how these reps would sell for $10k. You could still find them if you look hard enough.

Wasn't a steal but well bought assuming no frame damage, fitting issues are okay, the quality of paint/prep was taken seriously. Without documentation, you just never know.

Wondering how much more it would have fetch if the title was clean?

There is a rep on S14.net where the seller wants $40k but that car is a totally different well documented one off build.

Am I the only one, who thinks the guy selling all these cars, is the new Vladimir Kravets?

You mean homeboy who has a thing for the Albina rail yard?

Yah, I'm kinda wondering whats going on with that. I'm wondering if he's related to the shop the next block over from Dynasport.

I've seen some cool stuff going in and out of that place, but not talked to anyone there..

That would be Matt Crandall, formerly of Speed Sports, who now runs Avant Garde. Not who I am talking about.

I mean "vlad", AKA, Vladimir Kravets, who used to frequent this forum, with his penchant for slutty, transvestite looking women, pictured leaning in/on every car he had for sale. Probably slightly before your time

Anyway, the cars that the "rmontoni" fella puts out lately, remind me of cars Vlad used to do. Looked shiny, and decent from a quick glance, but don't look too hard...

Ahhh.... OK, I know which one you were meaning. Completely was thinking you meant the train pics. Yes, kinda suspicious of that as well.

The Vlad debacle was just as I was getting in to the r3v world. Think I caught it just before he was banned.

EDIT: I joined r3v the same month you did Austin.

You may have joined the same time I did, but I bet I lurked a lot longer than you

I was a 15-16 year old kid with nothing to add, so I just lurked quietly. Now 25 with nothing to add. Nothing changes.
