    Putting it out there.

    Thinking of selling up most of my classic fleet to get some money together to contribute to buying a particular NSX.

    Red body, black roof. Not fussed about interior. Manual, non PAS car. Not fussed on wheels.

    Will consider a Cat registered car if its easy to fix up.

    Missed out on one back in 2007 when I bought my Toyota Aristo (it had more power, more seats and a big boot) Oops. That's when they were much cheaper. Time has now come where it could be a contender for my garage spaces.

    Any info from NSX owners will be greatly appreciated and if I could possibly have a go driving one. Sam you're closest to me. If you're back in the UK I'd like to meet up and have a chat about the NSX with you.

    Wise move mate, I am too contemplating to do the same with my first gen I want it mechanically sorted and then have the battle with my heart and mind and decide.

    I would go for a facelift S2000 or two new bikes.

    good luck on that one guys
    i really see the attraction and quite fancy one myself but 20 gs plus for one worth having and maintence cost will be huge
    i certainly would never part with my old cars for something more modern but would happily own one as well if i had the spare cash
    buying a car like this would be ideal for me as the only reason for owning it would be for track day use or on the autobahna in europe otherwise a pointless purchase
    it would be a total waste of money as you would never get to experience this superb car legally on the road and i personally could not own something i could not use to its full potential

    The car is something that would not get limited use. I would use it for work and would be maintained by my new Honda contact who is chief mechanic at my local branch. Can't keep five cars. Two is enough. NSX and my red 3 door Accord.

    Motorcycling is better than a car. You can throb all over it to your hearts content.
