    Rob a bank, sell sperm, rent your body, get a second and third job, go sell oranges at the freeway exit (Florida oranges are the best IMO) ;)

    Have you tried scratch off lotto?








    :smug:
     
  7. People win the scratch off lottos all the time.

    It would be like : "Hey I won 2 bucks !". Although you pay a dollar for the scratch, but thats still one dollar closer. :)

    Is this going to be a street race car, or a
    local Dragstrip car? If your going to run at a
    Drag Strip, you could round up some sponsor money.
    Check with some local wrecker services,they like to advertise on race car's. Do some asking around
    at your track, sometimes you may get lucky and hook up with someone who used to race and is older
    now and has money to invest. Do some networking.
    OR...every member of TalkBass could send you a
    dollar.:)

    Get a loan!! :oops:

    I get 2 or 3 letter every day from companies offering me "great deals " on loans - every ad break on TV has companies saying they can organise a loan from 8-15 thousand - they can even help people who have been turned down before etc. etc. !!

    Financial services companies are everywhere - offering loans for everything at every rate imaginable!! :rolleyes:

    I understand. I am an old street racer myself, so I know how important it is for you to have that car.:)

    well i do need a car...and if i get a car im goign to spend money on it anyways..so this way its already done.

    i do have another car but thats getting taken apart to get redone. '73 plymouth scamp.

    which im sure i can make some money off the car at the track....whens the last time you saw a 12 second neon on the street?

    that and im going to get into scca racing..so this car is great. put a cage in it im all set to go bet some porsches and vettes

    So, have you been at the track when it got the 12 second 1/4? I'd be skeptical, just because somebody dumped a lot of parts and money into a car doesn't mean they did a good job...Ask for receipts for any parts and labor done, and before and after photos. Most likely, a guy who is serious about his ride has these on file.

    5k for a '98 Neon? It better be cherry. For that amount you can get a decent 5.0 if you look hard enough. No matter what kind of turbo, nitrous, etc system he's running, there's no replacement for displacement.

    actaully it is 6 grand..and a neon running 12's is awsome..im a mopar guy.so no 5.0's for me
    he does have all the reciepts.

    i think its well worth it.

    and i know all about displacement..i have two older mopars
