I threw in an early attempt and had it for a little while. Couldn't pass it up if I could get it for under $200.00. I didn't think it'd stay that low, and obviously didn't.

for the parts that he said were included, if they were in good condition, are probably worth a hair under $600, and thats me thinking that the frame was way out of whack. If the frame was built to spec, and welded good I would give an estimate of about $1000. Thats about what a donor plus the tubing for the chassis, plus welding supplies and time...

I used phantom bidder to try and snipe it in the last 3 seconds of bidding. I was only willing to spend as much on it as I would have buying the raw steel for my frame alone. In my mind, the included parts would just become icing on the cake if I won. I still think the winner got a good deal on the package, but I'm too far along with RX-7 parts/design to mix it up now.

google "phantom bidder" - first result that pops up.

Works great, as it bid many times more than humanly possibly at the last second (or in my case, last 3 seconds) of an auction. It still only guys up to a max price that you set. This is the first time I used it in a long while, but it appeared to work flawlessly, and since I didn't win, it cost me nothing. I think it's $1 or maybe a set percentage of the sale price if it does win the item for you.

Typical dumb question that could have been answered by a simple google search..THanks for not beating me up on that. I think it will be trying it out soon.
