    Gauging Interest:

    I think I have to sell my TA to pay for my wedding, just found out my lady has deadbeat parents…

    I am wondering how much my 2000 NBM WS6 is worth. It has 60,000 miles on it, it got a 224/224 Thunder Racing cam and Jet Hot long tubes about 23,000 or so miles ago. All was professionally installed by F-Body Central here in Maryland. They also tuned the car on the Mustang Dyno. Last year it pulled 390 at the wheels with the cut out closed, and 399 with it open. I have Kenny Diamond SFC’s, Carbon Fiber lid, smooth bellows, new NK plugs 4 times now with Taylor wires, underdrive pulley with alt overdrive, LS6 intake and a Flowmaster muffler with one Magnaflow cat to cut out the rasp. Always changed at 3,000 or less with mobile 1 synthetic. McLeod kevlar clutch and master cylinder are the only trans mods besides the stock Hurst shifter.

    I put some custom painted fuel rail covers on there. They have flames on them that start from blue and blend into silver. I just did the brakes, I put Powerslot dimpled and slotted roters and hawk pads on all 4 sides this year. I painted the calipers and brackets black, so it looks nice. Brand new rubber in the last 500 miles in the rear and fronts are only 1200 miles.

    This past summer I spent $900 and got the car buffed at the body shop, vinyl stripes removed, and all the door dings pulled out. I have all 6 chrome grills I just ordered and am about to put on. It also looks good with the Loudmouth tailpipes in the rear.

    Inside has pretty normal carpet ware, all tan with tan leather. I sent in the 4 door pieces and the center piece that surrounds the radio and had them laid with carbon fiber. Stock stereo, but have started to move toward something nice by putting in an altima battery.

    I have the old cam, manifolds and cats. Car would come with 2 16” chrome TA rims with Nitto drags on them. Only been down the track 2 times and I never got to use the slicks. I ran a 12.6@112 mph without slicks, underdrive pulley, and ls6 intake, and that was with a lousy driver (me).

    What could I expect to get for this car? Thanks for the help.

    heres the thing that sucks, dont expect to get any of your money back from mods unless you pull them from the car and sell them.

    I wouldn't sell the car to get Married but it depends on what is important to you. I would keep the car and get married at a Chapel or go to Vegas it's cheaper either way. JMO
    Selling your car will effectivly put your balls in Her purse sooner rather than later.

    I AGREE. if you sell your baby now you will #1 lose your balls to your wife. #2 lose your ass in $. and #3 you will never be able to forget having to sell your car to buy your wedding. which at some point may cause marriage problems due to lack of appreciation syndrome. every woman carries the disease its just a matter of time before they stop appreciating our sacrafices.

    I understand that you love her but it sounds like you cant really afford the wedding that your planning if that is the only reason to sell the car sounds like a bad idea when you have a fight she wont remember what you did to pay for the wedding and that will just make you more upset if you do it at least get in writing that she wont suddenly decide giving you a bj is gross good luck either way

    let me put it to you this way,
    when i got married, my formula was there, when i got divorced the formula was there........
    get the pattern??
    while the ex is gone the car is still mine.
    55% of people that get married get divorced rather quick nowadays

    sounds like you should just call off the wedding and break up with your girl.
