Have you tried Craigslist in various cities or BAT, bring a trailer.

 

Yes and yes :) , I work from home so i check it meticulously! right now on CL there is a nice 4 dr but i want 2dr there is one 2dr that is close (L20B) to what i was but the asking price leno money at 18K 

there are a few on the west coast but nothing that fits what i am looking for... 

 

however there is one in phoenix that i've texted but no response yet.. http://phoenix.craig...3717680698.html

there is this but the wiring isn't complete to make me suspicious... http://orangecounty....3733291800.html

The orange county one has been up for a while, guy is probably too lazy or too busy to work on it wiring can be a nightmare but for that price with the SR20 swap its pretty much worth the try.  Maybe have someone from here that lives close by can swing by and check it out for you and snap some pics.

Yeah, i mean i feel like i am being reasonable with the 8K budget and i have room to go up too! but I'm not going to burn my cash and but splurge on anything... 

I think tops is 10K and i should find something pretty good for that... but it's been slow... I'm even started PM'ing forum member to see if someone will sell!

Checked out your build! good work you are doing but I'm looking for a 2 dr :P 

Unless you have a 510 2dr tucked away somewhere?

I'm married so... this 2dr is my wedding present to myself with the wife's approval so I have to take advantage of this before she changes her mind and before we have kids!!!!!

See... you need to plan ahead. You purchase a 4dr. so that when you do have kids you dont have to get rid of it.

This one is a few towns from me I've seen it a hand full of times I'm sure if you came with money in hand you could take this dime home.

Well I have heard it did go threw a few owners in a short time, if he wasn't willing to take a loss because of the repairs that need to be made then he will never sell it.

I didn't actually make him an offer so i'm not exactly sure what price he would go down to... but just by my estimates assuming he's got:

1. surface rust on all floor panels

2. early stages of rust rot on the rear trunk

3. rust rot inside the cracks where the fiberglass flares are separating between flares and the main body. 

 

so its basically calls for potential moderate body work and full repaint so i'm thinking that would set things back about $3000 or more... 

long story short i don't think he'd be willing to take something like 6K as an offer so... i told him i'd pass on his sale.

just spoke to the guy... did the engine swap himself in like 2007, confirmed rust under vinyl roof and in trunk but not too many details after that... strange though.. i asked him if he had done engine swaps before because people on ratsun/510realm were all telling me that if i get a swapped car i'd want all the receipts and want to make sure someone reputable did the work... but he said he's only done a couple and it was all easy just a few bolts :P ... i was like huh? anyways either the swap is really easy or he is an awesome mechanic..
