Hello, I introduce myself, My name is Juan, I am 19 years old, I was born in Uruguay, but a little over 15 years ago I moved with my family to Phoenix, AZ.
 A few days ago I graduated from an industrial high school in Arizona as an Electromechanical Technician, and with my hard work in a mechanical workshop where I worked since 2016, and with the savings that I was putting together, I raised 20000V$ and bought my first cars ...




A 2002 Acura RSX Type-S, In very good condition, 100000 miles, Quite well maintained, Official maintenance of Acura, etc., A very good first car for daily use, I will make a few minor modifications (Do not expect a Turbo or a Kraftwerks Compressor for this car, because this car I want to use it for every day, as much coilovers, wheels and some body parts, but little more).

And since acura was not going to modify it much, and I wanted a nice project, I bought this...



A 2003 Ford Mustang SN95 GT
I bought it pretty cheap, but for several reasons:
- The car does not work
- The suspension is worn
- The car has not circulated since 2008
- It has not been inspected since 2008
Etc, etc, etc
And since then the car would repair it, and modify it, I do not care, and for that price I said, why not?

Cars Price :

RSX :V$ 6000
Mustang :V$ 1500

Finances :
V$ 20000-V$ 7500 (BOTH CARS)=V$ 12500

# saletl : Quite nice rides dude
Thank you men, I was thinking about putting some lip mugen or some jdm style (I know they are Chinese but good), coilovers, etc, but simple, With respect to the mustang, I have to repair it, change the entire suspension, and place modifications, maybe a dragstang, or a driftstang
But I will see it as time goes by, If you have a recommendation, leave it here or by private, Regards

Update on the RSX and the Mustang



I bought some Coilovers for the RSX, and some new wheels, in addition to the typical autozone vinyl to vinyl the emblems hahahahaha
Now it was perfect for now

And with respect to the mustang...



I made it run, although the suspension was worn, the engine sounded very bad, I went for a spin and about 6 kilometers from the stop, the engine blew up, the engine was blocked, we could not turn it, the block was cracked, so I'll have to buy another, what engine do you think would go well with the car? , I'll leave some options here:

- 2JZ-GTE
- LS
- 5.0 Coyote
- Nissan RB26
Another example...

Finances :

Coilovers cost : V$ 900
Wheels Cost : V$ 1595
Autozone "CARBON FIBER" Vinyl : V$ 5
Total spent : V$ 2500

V$ 12500-V$ 2500=V$ 10000

I made it start, although it worked horrible, pure shrieks, but I tried so much I could walk, I changed the oil, spark plugs and all that, but it was wrong, I tried to make it walk, I walked with a friend through the town and the engine died
Although the same, now I'm going to say that I did with the car at the end
Directly to see that it would be TOO expensive to change the engine for one that is suitable for this car (neither very small, nor very large, 6 cylinders as a minimum), besides that the suspension was fatal, and on top of that I discovered that the car had a serious damage in the chassis, which I did not see because it was covered by the oilpan cover, directly, take it to the scrapyard, earn about 750 for the car , so the mustang, is dead
Now I was looking at some new project, and I was looking for some RX7 FC3S, I found one and I'll go see it now, so, maybe it's the new project

V$ 10000
+V$ 750=V$ 10750

New project !

As you know, The mustang project is dead, because of the giant damage it had, so looking on the internet I found this car...



A 1990 Mazda RX7 FC3S RHD Imported from Japan in 2015
It has a rotary engine 13b N / A (Do not ask me why they imported a rx7 n/a when they could import the 13b turbo version, but hey, the previous owner will be a bit special ...)
The car already came with modifications, for example:
ITB's
18-inch wheels
Coilovers jdmspeed
Nardi Steering wheel
I bought it at a good price, for what it offered, The guy asked for 7500 for the car, I lowered it to 6500
So I got a good car for a new project, at a good price
The engine has 76500 miles and behaves very well. If it fails, improvements will be made to this engine, or a Swap will be made directly.

Car price : V$ 6500

Finances :
V$ 10750-V$ 6500=V$ 4250


Added 35 minutes later:

The daily pay of my work:

I work in a mechanical workshop, where I earn V$ 20,000 per year
Per month I earn a little more than 1600 V$
And by day I earn 55 V$

Finances :
V$ 4250+V$ 55=V$ 4305

New business !

Since I'm pretty short on money, I thought about what I would do to get money, fast, and it occurred to me to buy salvage cars, repair them at low cost (obviously I will not buy a salvage that has a lot of damage, but, it would be a loss of money instead of a profit, I will buy salvage cars that are with minor damages, that can be fixed, for example, slight water damage, or slight frontal / rear damage, etc)
And sell them, because I need the money at this time.

And after looking at other auctions, I found two cars:
Two Acura RSX, One is a 2004 type S, and the other is not yet, because the auction not specify the model, but it was the 2002 manual 2.0 version (i think).

They do not have much damage, Purely aesthetic, so it will be easy to repair them:

For the type s I paid $ 1500
And for the other pay: $ 1000 (It was also cheap because the car was very careless and was a guy jdm a little ricer, so discouraged the buyers, and because it is seen that it was the simple model of rsx, and I came out quite well, because the title is clean, the type s was salvage with the ability to rebuilt

So, wait until the cars come and work tomorrow!

Finances :
V$ 4305+V$ 2500+V$ 55=V$ 1860

My RSX is gone

I sold my rsx type s (black) for V$ 6000, (without coilovers or aftermarket wheels, totally stock).
And with that money I can take care of the Rsx, although maybe for the 2002 2.0 manual (nor type-s) I have a buyer (i think),(although I offered to make a change for his crashed car, surely for that clue you know who you ask)
But it is not known, but what is known is that the black rsx has already left
And in its place came 6000V$ that will help

Finances :
V$ 1860+V$ 55 (my job payday)+V$ 6000=V$ 7915

Guys, News about me

I was thinking about this for a while, I like the United States, but I was thinking about "getting out of the nest", moving to another place, I've seen videos of Japan, I love their culture, I love their cars, and I've thought about moving Once, and now that I am of age and I found a good job offer there, I told my parents that I would go to Japan, They at first hesitated, but they understood that it was my dream and it was the best, So, yes, I I'm moving to Japan

I will sell the cars that I have now in case someone wants them
I was thinking about importing the rx7, but I decided that it would not be very sensible for the price of bringing the rx7 to Japan

If anyone is interested, talk to me
I have 2 RSX (A type-s with salvage title, apt to rebuild, with little damage, and a manual 2.0 in decent state, with details of painting and clean title)
And a 1990 Mazda Savanna RX7 FC3S N / A RHD (Imported in 2015)

I am in Phoenix, AZ, I take care of the shipment if you want, but I need to get rid of them, fast!
