Ok.. Here is the deal. I will be selling my car but not yet. I will be
doing photo shoots with Super Street, Turbo Magazine, Import Tunner and
maybe Sport Compact Car. I will not be selling untill then. As for the car
it's running so good right now, no crack in the manifold. I have no idea
where that came from. The reason I have to sell, I don't want to sell is I
have to get married and James JR. is coming quick. I've tried to get a
second job so I can keep the car, But I just can't make enough money to
support all of us and the car. As for the car I'm just trying to enjoy
every last min.. with the car....

yYes there is a time when a man has to choose between the forces of the women or the car..
In this case TurboIS has choosen wisely as a TurboIS Jnr is in the piplines...

It must be sad to say farewell to ur other wife, but the main point is that better to have had then not to have.... once you are established Im sure another project car would come along... do i see a manual turbo?


GOOD LUCK with the future and with parenting!

Damn, James! This SukS! I loved your video's and all, & I always thought you had the best IS300. You'll just have to be creative once your married & have the kid & put some money aside for another cool car! It can be done, it's all about patience & respect for money.Just keep it in your mind that there will be another car, & it will keep you motivated. I wish you the Best Turbo IS!

Hey I got Some Good news Today... I just came back for the Doctor, And It seems the reason my other half has been late for the past two months is due to strees from finals and School. So I'm still getting Married but Jr. will have to wait... So I was thinking.. I'm still going to sell the car, So I can maybe save enough for house. But I do have some long term plans with some people and you may see another TurboIS one of these days...

Wow. You bought a 2001 car and it didnt depreciate! It must be a classic already to jump up almost $20,000! You have an awesome car but that is ridiculus. Your car is worth maybe $28,000. Maybe I will sell my IS. I added coilovers. My car must be worth atleast $40,000 now.

--------------------------------------------

Turbo IS you opened yourself to this, I hope your ready for some harsh critizism. Let this be a lesson to all, that put that much into a car, you'll never get that money back. As you can see, other members have gasped at the price (no disrespect), but you have to be realistic. TurboIS I have seen your car and it is a great vehicle, I hope you'll find a buyer soon, that appreciates all the work you have done. Any car enthusists out there?
