To Trade or Not to Trade

This guy keeps hasseling me about wanting to trade his 88' hatchback si for my prelude... should I cut him some slack and go with the trade or not?

is this a serious question, are you talking about doing a straight up trade for with a 3rd gen prelude for a EF si hatch?? come on man think about it, the only thing that would make it worth it is if it was a super clean EF with a GSR swap or H22 swap

no problem man, its just that 3rd gen ludes are getting harder and harder to find, and i see at least 2 EF hatches every day, plus if you want a hatch, you can pick up nice ef shells all day long for 500 bucks, then you get the satisfaction from building a car from the ground up!!

haha I wish my 3gp was as rare as your guys' XD
Out here in cali, specially here in modesto, I see at least 10or more 3rd gens a week, and if i go down where every one races I see them everywhere. Though saddly they are not taken care of :[ most are rusted or sitting on jacks or in peices. It makes me sad.

Only thing I would trade my 3g for is a 5g. We have a niccce electron pearl blue base 5g at work. Every time I look at it's ass I just wanna put it in. Although, if I did trade in the 3g I'd surely miss it. So I'll just have to settle with both eventually.

Here in Wichita, I've seen only 1 other 3rd gen so far, and 1 5th. But there sure are a lot of copy cat car models out there. (but none as sexy). I can't think of any that I would care to trade for.

Put the crack pipe down - this trade is full of loss.
