The SpitBird is up for sale. As much as I like this car, and it is a hoot to drive, and will be even more once someone fully sorts it out. It turns heads like crazy. In the end, its just not quite my passion, the time this requires to make it right I would much rather spend on my e28 or another project I have in mind. 

 

Posted up high on CL to see what people will say, but for people around here... Well, it's on this thread so I think you have an idea of the price. ;)

Does it come with spares/extras to get budget down?  It's running on the Ford ECM or the MS one?

Will try to get a list of spares included this weekend. Running on a Ford LA3 ECU. 

(Me and Stampie already talked about this, so just for everyone else’s reference.)

Team Stampie decided that we're not ready to jump into the deep end of the pool yet. One day we might grow up and play with the big boys.

Trade fodder.  Best I can do right now, too many cars and too little cash in the bank.

So $2018 is the sale price?  That looks like a fantastic deal.

In reply to Greg Smith :

I don't have anything else to leave the car rolling on for the sale really, so they're kinda stuck with the car.

I believe the current highest offer is a trade for a canoe.
