i would ask 5,000.00 obo
When you ask for a dollar amount when selling something. You really have to take into account who you are selling it to. If it's to a specific crowd you could ask about that much. But if you are trying to sell to anyone. They really don't care what you have done to it. Most people just NADA or Kelly online the year, make, model, miles and condition and the price goes off of that. You should do the same to give you a general expectation

Im marketing towards new drivers (kids) i guess. I have no plans of even letting an older person like someones mom even come look at it. The market is very alive where i live and after helping a good friend of mine look at cars around here i realize people ask way to much for cars that are in a word, SHIT. for instance a barley running primer 93 hatch with a ls swap and a untuned FMU'd egay turbo setup for 6 lol. They can blue book it all they want, in my eyes cars like this cant be blue booked. I would never try to trade it at a dealer, they would offer me some bogus low number that would make me wanna fight lol. My car is very clean in person, i change the royal purple every 3k. The thing with buying a car like this is you have to some what know what your getting into as the buyer.

Its like having stock's and seeing there value go through the roof.

I agree with this assesment but you're probably not going to have a target customer of "anybody" which is good because KBB doesn't have a check box for engine swap:) I think 5500-6000 is a good starting point.

Remember your car is only worth what someone will pay for it.

In that case ask about a 1,500 to 2,000 more than your willing to take for it. So when you negotiate down, it'll most likely end at the number you had in mind. if they take the inflated price...well you just made 3,000 LOL who says profit is a dirty word.

I just dunno if 7000 sounds ridiculous even to haggle it down. But funny you say that my friend and i went to Newark to pick up this civic for 5. He put it on craigslist for 6300 a week later and got it a day after he posted it. In pics it looks fine but if your a honda enthusiast and you dissect it, it really looks like shit.
