Hey, you guys should know how much this is worth

We bought this 93 Si as a spare for our ITS race Prelude a few years back. It had a blown engine, but everything else was great and straight with just a little "Honda rot" by the rear wheels. When we sold the race car (which still owns the ITS track record at Mid Ohio), the new owner did not want the spare. It was much too nice to junk so I got a salvage H23 engine and completely rebuilt it with all new rings, bearings, seals, belts, etc. and installed it back into the car. I spent the next year or so finding all the little parts and pieces for the interior and exterior to make it near perfect. I even repaired the Honda rot with reinforced fiber glass and spot painted it. I replaced a bunch of other stuff like front brake calipers, rotors and pads, tie rods, knock sensor, radiator, all hoses, etc. All that is left to do is put a complete paint job on it and it will be show quality with the completely original look.

I was going to keep it for my grandson but he doesn't turn 16 for 6 more years, and I realized I probably didn't want a 16 year old driving this rocket around as his first car.

Anyway, since I really could use the room, I'm going to try to sell it locally in the Columbus, OH area, but I am up against similar cars with 150k+ miles on the engines going for $2000. I will need to get about $3500 just to pay for what I put into it, not counting labor. Do you think I could get that much or should I just hold onto it??

Btw, it comes with 5 beautiful Kosei wheels with nice tires, and a set of 4 other alloy wheels with tires.

Fixing fender panel poopr with fiberglass is beyond what I can visualize but definitely saved into memory. Good luck with selling such a rust free marvel!

If that boy has some wits then by the time he is 16 be will learn to drive in a great machine. I never respected the road and I didn't drive calmly till I had my lude. It gave me respect for the road, not empty roads :p
