My flips have been hit or miss, the more I got into them, the more I found that I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving that way for the next owner. There is always that one that keeps you coming back for more.

A long time ago, I got a 95(?) Ford Probe from a friend of my wife's for $1500, spent $500 to fix a couple things, cleaned it up, then sold it for $3500 (to a guy at church, otherwise I could have gotten maybe $4000) all withing 3 weeks.

Wonder why the check engine light is on. I find it funny it says on there that they are asking 1400 above average for it. I don’t trust small dealerships like that. They feed off of people who have bad or no credit.

I'd be the same way, too. I worry that if I get a fourth-gen Prelude, I'd end up selling the RSX instead of that when it came time to unload one of the coupes (because why own two?), but because the RSX's body is getting so rough, I'd feel guilty about dropping that car on someone even though I keep it mechanically sound with primarily OEM parts. I just think, "my name is on that, I couldn't do that to you." I need to get it painted, and then it'll be awesome so I'll keep it. Worse cars are for sale out there, though, so at some point you've got to get over it.

Does the sedan carpet fit the wagon? I'm trying to pick up a $500 SE sedan this weekend that has a ton of donor parts I'd been wanting for this build. Swapping as much of the interior as is salvageable would be great. I tried searching, but all I'm coming up with is the coupe vs sedan question. I feel like it'll fit since the inner door panels and a lot of the plastics do, but just to be sure...

Oh, and the quarter panels, too. Anyone know if they're as identical in the wheel arch area as they look? If the SE's as rust free as it looks, I might not need to be as strict on my wagon hunt.

The carpet is different in the rear; it extends further under the rear seats in the wagon. Rear seats are considerably different between the sedan and wagon (coupe is different than both as well). I suspect that the quarters are similar below the belt line, obviously different above.

Yeah, the rear seats are obvious with the way they fold flat. Is that the only difference with the carpet, though? Long term goals, I'm wanting some sort of Element-like rubberized flooring in the rear so I can throw whatever back there and not worry about it (like for junkyard runs, etc). So if the carpet fits otherwise, from where the rear seat bottoms meet the carpet all the way up to the firewall, I can handle that. As long as the contours of the mold match up to the floor and where it sits against the sides, etc, that'll work. I suppose if this guy ever responds, I'll have plenty of experimenting to do anyway. It's an Offer Up sale; he responded to the first question about a mechanical issue quickly last night, but not to the request to meet up.

It's got factory fogs with the factory-perfect cut-outs! I wouldn't have got fogs otherwise because I like a cleaner appearance and have no real use for fog lights, but I'm not turning down a 'free' set. Between that, the smaller coupe/sedan front bumper I was wanting, the coupe/sedan rear bumper lip to cut and mold to the wagon for my exhaust, the black dash w/full passenger airbag system, restorable interior... it's worth more than the $500 he's asking, if only he knew who to market a part-out to.

My buddy just picked up a leather equipped EX 93 wagon for a grand here in So. Cal. The car is in excellent condition with very few blemishes. Certainly no rust. Just needed the AC fixed. Good CB9ís are out there. Here in So. Cal. the cars are still cheap. Even the CB9ís. But the accessories are big bucks. The fogs, one piece headlights, tall CB9 center consoles, moonroof visors, roof racks etc.
I just pulled a roof rack from a 91 CB9 at pap last week. Its very rare to find them in a pap. Itís an easy $300 sell and of course already spoken for. Good luck bro. Be patient and youíll find the right CB9.

Dude claims to have a GSR front brake conversion on his sedan. That's a thing?

Funny ad, though. "This car completely changes the complexion of the craigslist experience."

It's beautiful, too, but I don't have the time to travel. I'm keeping an eye on the local channels, though, thanks.

Would shipping be an option though?

No, that's an aftermarket phone that's getting close to 20 years old. The seller would have done well to remove it so as not to date the car's appearance.

Yeah, knowing I can get into a clean CB9 for much less, I'm definitely not paying potentially $6k for one unless it was RHD. I'd even pay a bit more for that. I think of the more desirable cars $6k would buy that are much more likely to keep climbing in value - I day dream about getting an NB Miata all the time just because I'd love a tiny car to chuck around, especially after that feature on The Slip Angle (I'm on my phone, YouTube it; white car, bad ass driver, fairly recent upload... dude's got a little fleet of cool Japanese sports cars, and they all get tracked hard).

I do wish every seller would be so thorough in their photography, though.
