    Soooo..civic. Ok gotcha.

    What are the best sources for track cars? Obviously the kijijijijis and craigslist, but hadn't heard of a bunch of the others listed here. Cars.com is an obvious place I wouldn't think to go to.

    How do you coordinate shipping/getting a car from FL ??

    I'm sure you can find a cheap rhd in montreal, rwd with basic jdm crap on it that you can track

    I never get these updates in my email. I miss more conversations that I am a part of ;-(

    I would plan to trailer the car to the track eventually but being able to drive it there for the first year or so would be best. That would give me time to decide how much I'm going to enjoy the tracking on it's own. Much of the enjoyment I got out of the G8 was that I loved it on the track AND the street.

    my civic had that kind of mileage on it. like i said before, suspension bushings, engine mounts, brake lines, etc etc....if it's been winter driven then all that shit will be a fucking pain in the ass to get apart. I ignored some of that shit for a while but things like the rear suspension trailing arm bushings would just fail under driving stress of the track.

    The bernier bros had wheels fly off. old bearings? shit happens to old shit.

    Mileage on the motor doesn't scare me. Mine had 165,000 MILES on it when I bought it and it had been a race car for nearly 10 years.

    Default Next track car?

    Do rusty engine bays and suspension parts bother you, or its just the way it is when buying local and used?

    Goes back to maintenance and basic replacement before abuse?
