Default Should I trade my Mac for a 1995 Civic Hatchback?

So this guy offered to trade my Apple MacBook for his 1995 Civic Hatchback VX. The car apparenlty has low miles (40,000) but needs some minor work including a new clutch slave cylinder, battery, and the axle needs to be "put back on". Additionally, he said the car was used for circuit racing, so some of the stuff has been taken out including the AC and backseats. The race motor has been taken out, and was replaced with the original motor. With gas prices the way they are, would it be a good investment to trade this guy and fix this car?Just for the record: Cars have always been "my thing" and I don't doubt my ability to fix this car. The car is road worthy and can be up and working for less than $200. I have a buddy who owns a local salvage yard who is willing to provide me with the necessary parts for a good price.

Depends on your MacBook and your needs. According to your description of the car I'd say NO for sure!!! Unless you really need a car and you are a good experienced mechanic. That is my advice.

depends on how much your macbook is worth. you can get a used EG (1992-1995) civic hatchback for a few grand depending on condition. i pick one up for $3K as a project car but never got around to modifying it. i sold it for $3.5K a couple years later (fixed a few things and fully detailed it (restored the paint)). WORST decision i have ever made. i miss that car and want another one. it would get awesome mpg, and was a great commuter. if you can afford it, i would suggest just buying out right (you should be able to find one from (1.5K to 3K) in decent condition. if you cant afford one, and your macbook is worth 2K or more, DO NOT trade. if the macbook is worth 2K or less, DO trade.
