Something new!

Hello Everyone,

I need some opinions on a new project car. It's a 1991 CRX with a B16 with a type R head, wire tuck, tune on the fly, fully gutted. It's only problem is that it has a blown head gasket, but it still runs just burns a little coolant. It has new paint expect for the hood. I can pick it up for about $3500. I would like to maybe put a turbo build on it, but still undecided. I don't have pictures yet but can probably can get a hold of some. Any and all opinions is appreciated.

Blown head gasket, Id lowball the **** out of that to cover the replacement cost.

Re: Something new!

3500 is a bit on the pricey side.
Yeah, it's fully modded....
But the downside to that is.........that it's fully modded.
You might not know all the things that has been done to the vehicle.

I think 2k is a fair price. I'd look for rust and signs of accident as well (non matching paint, shiny sub-frame parts, etc...)

Re: Something new!

Thanks for the opinions, the car is rust free, and has a custom sub frame because the motor kept ripping it out on launch at the track. Only has two runs on the track. Never been back since the new sub frame. I don't think he is in a hurry to sell it. Yes the blown head gasket is a set back but not a deal breaker. Im going to see if i can ask for pictures to post.
