Basically the car has to go.
It it brutally painful for me to be typing this, but some financial difficulties and pending divorce force this sale.

Check for new lower price.

A few points to clarify in advance:

1) Although ebay/autotrader might be the best option for max $$$$ for the sale of the car as a whole, I would most likely have to fix the few little "issues" with it (see page 1 on my FS thread) before I could sell it there. I simply don't have the
a) $$$$
b) time
c) expertise/knowledge
to do this. People who *MIGHT* spend $9-$10K on this car are going to expect it to be close to perfect.
Otherwise, they'll probably just move on to a newer prelude, EG/EK civic, S2K, etc.

2) Believe me guys, parting this thing out would make me cry like a school girl for probably a week straight, but it might yield the most $$$$ as this car has the best of everything as far as parts go (as if y'all don't know this already :wink: ).

3) I MIGHT be willing to do a cash+trade for the car, but I'm VERY picky.
Here's what I'm looking for:
---something $3K range or less
---prefer civic, corolla/prizm
---in good working order (A/C, power options, etc)
---recent repairs/new parts a big plus
---basically a stock (or simple, tasteful mods---no crazy body kits, neon interior, or fart cans need apply) vehicle that needs little/nothing and is reliable.
---probably a mid-90's civic ex 5-spd sedan or something similar.

First off, sorry to hear that things are rough for you right now. Good luck with everything. I say DON'T part this thing out. It's a hell of a build and you should be able to sell it as a complete car so someone can appreciate it. There are a lot of very good people in the Honda community, and I think if you sell it to the right person, you could end up buying the car back when things are a little more stable in your life.

Have you put the car up on AutoTrader or Honda-Tech's Marketplace site yet? I'm sure you'd prefer the car went to a member here or redpepperracing or whatever, but you can't beat the amount of exposure to Honda fanatics that you'll get on h-t, and you can't beat the total amount of people and the inflated prices that cars tend to go for on AutoTrader. Again, good luck selling this car, it's a hell of a machine...and I hope everything gets better for you very soon.

I'd say advertise more and sell as a whole. With how hard it is for you to let your baby go, it would be easier I'd think to get your baby adopted all at once rather than rip it's arms and legs off and sell it piece by piece.

Hate to hear the bad news, man. Good luck. :cry:
