My buddy Adam Neely (Klub Vintage in NJ) and I are considering going into a project car together. I'd mainly be financing a good bit of it - he does restorations/build-ups. His pieces so far have mostly been e21's, e30s, e28's...
But he'd like to do something fun for the two of us to go into together and maybe turn around in 6 months or a year for a tidy profit.
This isn't something I ever really looked into before as it's not my forte. We have a 4-digit budget, probably $8-9k max and if we went there it'd need to sell for $15k+ when we were done. Ideally $4-7k.
I'm looking for tips on specialty cars that fit this mold and that pop up from time to time. We're open to everything from:
1. A wrecked/rusty 993 or 87-89 911, maybe even a beat-up 911 SC
2. A porsche 914 we could do a total strip down and maybe drop a different engine into it - I got him hooked on the idea a few years back when I showed him an article of a 914 built up with a Subaru WRX 2.0 liter turbo in it.
3. Possibly an M-car of some sort....bit leery of this
Anyway....I don't think a wrecked 993 is in the budget, but I'm just sharing to give an idea. Something with a manual transmission, some rarity, some soul, and a pretty good market for a restored model.
I'd welcome any input
Just something we're tossing around...
