I've always wanted to actually get into auto mechanics, but it seems that the only way to really get into it is to just f***ing do it.

And having a car I don't care about at all that I won't feel bad about tearing apart will help. i figure there's enough documentation on the internet about how to get into this, good form, etc.

Idk. It might sound dumb and crazy but meh. I want to do it.

Spend $500 on car.
Sell gaudy seats for $250.

Go for it. Plus if you get good, you'll have an effing CR-X!

I have no idea what that man is talking about.

ask for 300 on that, and go as high as 400$

Go for it.
Cheap enough, plenty of docs on it, plenty of aftermarket and junker parts, they sell for much more in decent condition which wouldn't take much.

You could probably turn a profit on this one... Sell the seats for sure.

I tore into the motor and did the head gasket on my 30 year old tercel I had. I still suck at car repairs but I took it slow and with some documentation and it was alright. You do need hands on experience to get better. If you have a good place to work on it I'd go for it. For me personally I really enjoyed it alot. It's satisfying too.

And see, I'm really not gonna be going for any specific repair on this one. Just gonna break it down and put it back together because I can. So no real pressure.
