Only reason I will go to a breeder is for a hunting dog soon.

Agreed all our pupps have been rescues, and I personally wouldn't have it any other way. But there are cases where breeders work out for what you want. To extend on the car anology: is it better to buy new or used? I've never bought myself a new car but for some new is the right decision. I can't make that decision for anyone, only provide some data based on my experience.

Yes, but just like a car figure out what you want, what you want to avoid. Do you have an idea on big or small? Do you have a specific breed in mind? Try to realize (to the best of your ability) what you are getting in to. In the case of the dog: they poop, they pee, they want walks and trips to the park. They need to go to the vet, do you have a car that you are willing to be all furry? Food costs money, does your life schedule allow for them to be with you or will you need to board them? Do you have the space at home for what you want?

Once you have that all worked out then decide if you want a rescue or need to find a breeder. Then... yea you just and buy one.

PS. I should add we currently have two dogs in the permanent collection so if you wanted to come over and talk more PM me for details.

Calipers look really nice in black. As much as Wilwood reminds me of Chip Foose and Overhaulin' i must say that those are tasty.

I think that there reversed just for comparison. Possibly for a clearance check.

Yeah, but someone will still want the tub for cheap.

Not saying put back to stock, but the sum of the parts is more than he'll get all together.

Problem with that car is the welded cage. Parted out you can't really sell it as stock ish anymore.

More money in pieces, as always.

Only took me 3 weeks to part out my hatch. Seems like 240 parts market is more robust though, obv.

Price is on the high side but someone who wants a turnkey track car will buy it. Takes the right buyer that's all

Very slim target audience.

He should boost it and eat S2ks.

I literally laughed (well maybe snickered) when I saw the price. Scared me immediately. Reading the mods and parts lists had me retracting that but you've got a slim target audience. Also makes me realize why I hope I never sell my car...

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I still don't understand pouring all that money into the car and like the next month trying to sell. It's probably not a bad price with the spare engine but the market is sort of slim for that miata buyer.
