Oh the decisions!!!

Post  SpoonFed on Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:59 pm

I have a friend that has been hounding me for my Del Sol ever since I bought it. But I've never wanted to give her up, until he did something mean to me.... I've ALWAYS wanted a clean EG hatch, and well he just aquired one recently and decided he did not like it as much as he thought it would have. So last night he offered to trade it straight across for the Sol. Now, normally I would of said no, I've already done so much to this Sol. But this EG has a VERY clean swapped in C1 with B16 LSD trans, we are talking a VERY fast car... I don't know what to do... The EG needs some body work but so does my Sol... And the interior in my Sol is cleaner than the EG, but man... An EG hatch with a GSR swap... What do you all think? Keep the Sol or swap for the EG GSR hatch?

I would keep the Sol. You can pick up a hatch so cheap and then just drop a swap into it. You can have a swapped hatch for like 2000 and you cant get a good condition Sol for that.

That's the exact same thoughts I have. A clean Sol is SO hard to come by these days...

keep the sol.....running ones are hard enough to find. plus you've put alot of work into it. intrinsic value is important to only the owner.

Thanks for all the input, you all only enhanced my original feelings of keeping the Sol. And technically I paid $1300 for mine, because that is what I paid for my 92 Camaro that I traded straight across for.

See? and this is why we can't have nice things around here...the founder of the site wants to fall subject to the "new car sydrome" lolz.

Ya gotta think about it man....people want what you've got for a reason and that "reason" is the very same reason of why you should keep it yourself Wink

Haha, thanks everybody for the "Solport" <-- see what I did there Wink. I've already stated I'm keeping the Sol, there is only three other Sol's in Springfield that I've ever seen. One is a 94 Si with a stock B16, the other is a 95 S that is ALL pink, and the thrid is a legit straight from Japan RHD 97 Si that is under the knife. When I see them all I'm gonna have them join the site. Especially the JDM RHD SOL. Don't worry guy I'm going knowhere haha. Just for a breif moment I was bedazlled by the shinyness of a C1.

I'm not 100% sure. It's been in his garage for years all torn down. Oh and its orange not red not sure its the original color. But doubt it since the owner is a body/paint guy.
