Default How much would you pay for this car?

I am thinking about selling my 1995 Honda delSol with 90,000 miles. Some pictures of it can be seen here http://s79.photobucket.com/albums/j149/boarder700/I have done the following to it: Tokico Illumina 5 way adjustable struts, Neuspeed Race lowering springs, Upper and lower tie bars in the front and back, New paint in 2004, 17" wheels with Toyo Proxes tires, Custom mounted Infinity Kappa speakers with a Phoenix Gold amp, Kenwood CD player, New carpet, vinyl and apint in the interior, Custom mounted Optima yellow top battery relocated to the trunk, Cold air intake, Short throw shifter,Lots of other little stuff I cant think of now.I love this car, but I bought a BMW a few months ago and love it more. The car leaks a little bit through the trunk and targa top in the rain (nothing major) and has a reconstructed title. It runs perfectly and needs nothing. It is a very clean, respectable looking car for an import. Please let me know what you think and how much it is worth.The car was already been reinspected by the State Police Dept before I bought it as is required by Mass State Law. It was repaired with all new parts as is also required under Mass law. The damage was not very extensive, the airbags did not even go off. It was deemed toatlled because the cost of repairs was more than the car was worth. A paint job alone is at least $1500.

A phrase that stuck out was "reconstructed title", when I looked it up here is what I found.....Rebuilt/Reconstructed Title - A Rebuilt/Reconstructed vehicle is a salvage vehicle that has been repaired and restored to operation. These vehicles are often severely damaged before they are rebuilt and refurbished parts are typically used during reconstruction. In most states, an inspection of the vehicle is required before the vehicle is allowed to return to the road.On top of that, it's 12 years old, and has a lot of customization done which actually depreciates the value further.If you can get $600 - $800 consider yourself lucky.

All the extras don't matter, If you say that it runs well you might be right, but thats what you say. It'll sound good to someone that is just buying a car for the first time and doesn't know better. But from the sound of things that you say that you put into that car. sounds like you hot roded the hell out of it and your looking for a quik way out. Alot of young people will fall for it thinking that the car is something great with all that stuff instaled. but then aweek later the car starts messing up... I would think that the car is worth 1000. OBO....

Wow!! I have no idea why people online are being so harsh. A rebuilt or reconstructed title is not always such a big deal. Your car is worth more than $1,000. What you should do is take the car to your local DMV for a safety inspection before you sell it. That way you can tell the prospective buyer that it passed your state safety and emission inspection. Also, this will allow them to register the vehicle without worrying about the title or having to pass the inspection on their own terms. Insurance companies stamp titles as Salvage so that they can limit their liability on that vehicle in any future accidents. I once had suspension damage to my vehicle and the insurance company stamped salvage on it. They cannot fix a used car with used parts, suspension components are very expensive and it was cheaper for them to total my vehicle out than fix it.We (online viewers) don't know why your car has a Salvage/rebuilt title but you can tell the buyers and they will appreciate your honesty. You have a vehicle that is highly sought after by some. Take my advice and go through the safety and emission inspection. Then sell the vehicle for $2,000 or best offer. Remember that the upgrades you did will not add to the value of your vehicle.

even though it wasrebuilt, it still looks nice. I would go and pass the safety test and obviously let the person buying check it with their mechanic first, it is a good lookin car. i would give about 3k for it because it is in very good condition after the rebuilt and you only have small problems. good luck with it.
