      People can ask whatever they want. There is no used car value on that car; it's a show car and people can add up their receipts and shoot for whatever crackhead price they want.

      Funny, to me that car would have more value bone stock than after all the "work" they put in to it.

      I like some of the mods but they just prove when it comes to resale time, all those mods can be like throwing $$$ out the door. I still miss my 1986 CRX Si though, which I bought brand new.

      So it's a two owner car then (modder bought car from woman - that makes two), not that it really matters. This is why I refuse to mod any vehicles that I own (within reason anyway). I always see people driving down the road in cars/trucks/SUV's, etc. that have thousands of extra dollars poured into them. Then they complain when they go to get rid of them that they can't recoup their money. Duh........Yeah, yeah, I know it's some people's hobby and many people pull most of that stuff before resale, but still..........

      It's too bad. For all that work they'd have got the same result from a junkyard CRX.
