Just wanted to see what everyone has spent on their cars. I have a little over $6K in mine now. Including the price of the car ($3500). All parts are listed in my sig. Will hopefull have about $7K in it when I am finished, hopefully in the next 2 months. (reasonably finished :D


I know Cmichael00 will be in here soon too, he makes me envy him sometimes.

Not sure if im bragging or complaning on this but, The car in the sig below has about $12500.00 worth of stuff, some of it I got new some used.
The engine and drivetrain, fuel system ect. I had in it was $22000.00.( not counting the 1600$ spent fixing blown trannys) A-4 block, Cola crank "0" balanced, Crower billet rods, Custom pistons, Sollid roller, Novi 2000,C-4 trans, so on and so fourth. I am curently building another car for all that stuff to go into though. Bad thing is I only paid 400$ for the car. An 84GT that has a 87 up body kit.

if we only spoke engine, I have over 8k
with interior, suspension, braking, wheels etc, and custom fuel plumbing, I would say closer to 15-18k

I'm into my 'Vert about 3500 right now....and in a few weeks, it'll be about 4500 bucks. Yeah, that includes the car and every single mod, everything but gas and insurance.

It'll run deep into the 12's, outhandle and outbrake a new GT (with 13" Cobra brakes in front and 17 x 9 Cobra R's all the way around going on in the next couple weeks), and gets 25 mpg on the highway.

:)

Once I have 5k into it, it'll be in the 11's, daily driven!

If I wasn't *wasting* so much money on fluff stuff (brakes, who needs those??), the car could be faster, cheaper, but since it's a daily, I think that all aspects of the car should be addressed.

One of my future projects is going to be to see if I can get a car into the 10's reliably for under ~3500, including car. Should be fun!
