in many areas in America, there are 1st gen prius's that sell for about 5500 with 100k, after bargaining. good luck with the sale

I don't plan on arguing the value of my build as I know what kind of effort, time, and money went into it. I'm asking a price that I feel the market will support. Anyone can make any offer, but I will refuse any that don't meet my price. My father told me when I was young that the buyer is in charge. I've since learned that with the power of marketing (ebay specifically) you can overcome that obstacle.

The two obvious retorts I would have for that comparison is:
A Prius isn't a VX, no expensive batteries to replace. 100k is a lot for suspension components to take and not require a rebuild which would probably run $1.5k to the average non-DIY consumer. (Probably more to do what I've done, but just for the sake of comparison)


Body and motor have 180580 miles.

What I can say about the vehicle is that I have not driven another 1992-1995 civic which rode as tight as this one. New suspension components make all the difference. Any other 100k+ cars out there are not going to give the same driving experience that this car has to offer.

I've searched for another mint federal vx with AC over all sources I could find. I've found none that have what this car has. Not that it can't be replicated, but this one is very near completion. It's for those with more money than time.

Just got a vehicle report from instavin.com . I can email a copy to any interested parties in PDF format. The record is clean.

I'm very happy to report a fellow member is now in possession of the vx heading toward home. Not happy that it is gone, but happy a member can extract maximum FE from it!

I'm sure the new owner will reveal themselves in a relatively short amount of time, but yes.
