well I think I have to get rid of 1630. for those of you that dont know, or have forgotten. I picked it up from 'joec' a few years ago. the car had a few gremlins that quickly introduced me to roadside maintenance. for a while I a had blast with the car. it helped me to really learn how to drive. and it got up to the point where it was running a 16g setup with every supporting mod. intake, exhaust, fuel, tuning, suspension. every part was replaced one at a time. then it came to the inevitable point where the alternator went bad. long story short 1630 caught fire. that left me broke, without a car and up a creek. I did everything I could to keep it, until I finally had the ability to put it into a garage. after I got it in the garage I picked up all the parts I needed from nate to get the car back on the road. I started to tear it down, when I I found out the motor inhaled fire extinguisher. the motor was done. so I was stuck again, not enough funds for a whole rebuild. 1630 slowly started being parted out. It has been in my dads garage for like 3 years now. Im forced to go from JSB to removing 1630.
currently the firewall forward is empty. I tried not to part anything, that I wouldnt replace anyway. the body is still as straight, and interior as fine as it was, and if there is ANY rust on it, it is just going to be surface rust that has formed since it has been put in the garage. on things like some bolts for instance. remember everything was brand new when it caught fire.
my biggest problem with getting rid of it, is that 1630 did exactly what a good vr4 does, made me fall in love with it. so I have 2 options, sell as a whole, or start the part out. I know the money will be much better if I part it (I have already gotten more money out of then most get for rollers) but if it gets parted and crushed then that means I dont get the sweet option of buying it back after it had more money dumped into it.
I know that pics do talking this is when I got 1630.
now I know these arent current pics, but they give you an idea of the condition. the body/interior hasnt had any damage from these pics. right now the car has 3 years of sitting and I will have to get some clean time in before I scare away any potential buyers.
I also have a few parts left over that I will put up separate but If you ask some of my past transactors I make great combo deals, and im not in it to profit, just to help the community, while trying to keep my life straight.
should I try and leave it up here for the community?
should I sell it to a ricer in town?
should I sacrifice it to give life to the other vr4s?
should I just make it quick and painless and crush it and forget about it?
sorry for all the reading, but these cars have been my life for the past few years so its hard to give an abridged version.
please PM me with any offers/appraisals. any questions/interest feel free to ask
