Default Help with my father's car

Hello- My father, Fred Perra use to be in the s2000 club years ago when he lived in Texas. Sadly, he passed away last year. He has a garage kept yellow 2002 Honda S2000. He did a lot of modifications on it and it is over 500 hp. We had an appraisal on it and I have the report. We need to sell it and I need some help with that. Currently the car is in WA as that is where my dad retired. The appraiser told me I would have better luck shipping down to TX and selling to a racing audience. Didn't know if you could give some advice

Hi Michelle.
Unfortunately I have no experience with selling modified S2000s so I cannot help you there.

But out I wanted to say I remember your father well and am sad to hear that he passed away. He was a great guy to know in the club and helped out a lot of us with his impeccable work. In fact, the transmission in my car right now is the stock unit that came out of his car, and he did the installation for me.

I remember that yellow car well, and how high-quality the work he did on it is. I hope you're able to find the right buyer for it.

Sad to hear Fred passed away. I have a lot of fond memories spending time with Fred, he not only installed the first turbo setup on my S, but was a great help all around in the S2000 community.
