Let's see a chopped up GT with a BBC while I can find a very well sorted X275 capable turbo car for around $15k (even though I know for a fact it has close to $80k tied up in it).  Sorry to break it to you, other people's toys are only worth what someone is willing to pay and usually that isn't very much.  

Let's see this very well sorted x275 car for 15k that has 80 into it.

Just because some hillbilly calls it a 275 car doesn't mean it actually is.  I've been seeing that a lot on racing junk.  "Proven 275 Radial Car!!!"  Click on it and it's a stock block 302 with an s-trim that goes high 10s.

And chopped up?  It's got a brand new 8.50 chrome-moly cage, brand new suspension, brand new rear end that I just did, new fuel system, new wheels/tires, new racecraft wing, etc.  Fresh paint.

But let me guess, you're beat up f-150 with a bolt on pro charger kit is worth big money right?  Obviously worth more money than my chopped up car?

I didn't insult his intelligence anywhere in the post.

He has a point though, I've seen heavily modded Jeeps go for less than the stock Jeep would sell for used....toys are only worth what someone else will pay, no need to get butthurt.

I know people never get their money back on something like this if they build it new.  But to say my car is worth 8 grand is a joke.  Also, I want to see this car for 15 grand that has 80 into it.

Uhh, no. It's not. Technically, it's "peoples's", but proper grammar forces you to drop the extra 's' at the end.

He said not to insult the intelligence of multiple people. He's not talking about one person.

I know, and people is already plural.  You use 's.  We're not talking about "peoples", we're talking about "people".

If we were discussing the 'peoples of Africa' for example, you would be right about the possessive form being peoples'.

So basically, fuck mySQL(annoying), and fuck Meaty for insulting my poor grammar with his own poor grammar.

Let's see this very well sorted x275 car for 15k that has 80 into it.

Go look at the Notchback that run's 8's in the FATF section.  That car is WAY better setup than yours and 15K - 20K is about as much as it would sell for.  8.90 index...:lol:  With the custom billet wheeled GT5588 (think Pro Mod turbo) it's getting it'll be looking at 7.90's and you think your car is worth $15k?  Well a sucker is born every minute...


And chopped up?  It's got a brand new 8.50 chrome-moly cage, brand new suspension, brand new rear end that I just did, new fuel system, new wheels/tires, new racecraft wing, etc.  Fresh paint.


So fucking what?  I've seen solid 25.5 cert setups that sell for a bare fraction of the money invested.  The only way you can even get half of you money back is by parting the whole thing back out.  Nobody wants a brand new rear end that YOU did for anything approaching what you have invested in it.  Hell I can pick up a fully setup 8.8 with 9" ends on it for $300 (can actually get one for damn near free if I really wanted one).

But let me guess, you're beat up f-150 with a bolt on pro charger kit is worth big money right?  Obviously worth more money than my chopped up car?

I've actually had an offer for that truck for more than $15k.  So, to the right person it is worth at least what you think your car is worth.  I don't plan on selling that truck anyway (never even brought it up actually) and it sure as hell isn't beat up with less than 60k miles on it :lol:  Market forces, like chassis dynos, are heart breakers and you will learn that sooner or later.
