    30 days, then it goes to the crusher.

    I'm officially done. I'm tired of being insulted by lowball offers, fucking assholes like 92vr4widebody (Aaron) who flake out on already stellar deals, and sick to death of a 3/s that has been a millstone around my neck after chaining myself to the wrong horse for year after year, project after project.

    Bring a flatbed, take it all away. If you're not here by July 23rd, it's all going to the crusher. All of it. I'd rather it go to someone on 3SGTO than any assclowns on FB or 3sdie. I had 20 grand in reciepts in parts in 2011 alone--most of which is still brand freaking new and never been used. I'm not going to part it out and relive memory after excruciatingly painful memory. I'm dead serious about taking it to a junkyard & letting them turn every last bit of stage 3 heads, MHI turbos & stroker shortblock into a lovely hunk of smelt-ready metal.

    If you're a REALLY honest person, you can consider payment commensurate to whatever value you believe my stash holds; but I know better than to dream of such ideals amongst the 3/s community I've known for 15 years.

    PM me. I'm not going to hold anything. 1st who arrives wins.

    As of right now, it's looking like this is headed for a friend of the family. I'll keep you posted.

    I'd come take it if I could. I saw some of your posts in chat last night.

    IMO, if you can't find someone to take it, find a storage spot for it and build it when you have time down the line. I can never part with my stealth. It will remain in the garage till its fixed or a die it will never be sold. Its my dream car and I will keep it.

    Can you explain where I can get more info about this vehicle and it's location? I want to know the price, condition, if you will part one or two parts off of it, the glovebox lock and the front bumper. Thanks in advance! On the 22nd/23rd I'm bringing my VR4 to Toledo for a tune, so if you are in that area of the country maybe I can make a detour and stop to see it in person.

    I'm in GA. Car is sitting in my garage along with all the parts I have for it. I will not part it out.

    p.s.
    On a philosophical note:

    This platform is dead. Probably one in a long line of platforms that FB is effectively killing off. As ABM said the night in chat, "nobody wants them unless they're a minty vr4/tt and costs <$5,000". That's why Josh is out of the game. That's why all the 3/s specific shops have diversified--just so they can stay afloat. The original project was a very alluring one; to have the only 600 AWHP (fully functional) ATX 3/s in the world. A slew of misplaced trust, a personal deficit in technical skill/ability, and an overall endeavor that was completely in uncharted territory (at least electrically)...was the kiss of death. The nail in the coffin wasn't immediate. It was gradually a realization that this was just never going to happen--and was going to bleed me dry in the process.

    Auto manufacturers may end up making 600 AWHP cars available for public consumption someday...but they won't be 3/s pretty. The R35 is fugly, as is literally everything from Audi, BMW and Mercedes (imho). The 90's were a special time, and we got some very nice looking cars out of it (WS6, 3/s, MKIV, FD3S, etc). But they're all old, technology marches on--and 2010's sports cars are just fugly, overweight 1969 throwbacks. If there ever is a resurgence in good-looking sports cars (doubtful) it probably won't happen for another decade or two.

    So honestly, if you're having trouble finding parts for your 3/s it means:

    1. you're not looking hard enough, because there's tons of parts & lots of cars parted out

    and/or

    2. the value on the cars is so abysmal that even parting them out isn't worth anything.
