    Geez, you should have asked a year ago. My friend Tony had a low mileage FD that didn't sell very easily. Don't remember what it finally went for but I believe it was in great condition.

    FD too fragile. Beautiful, but have you ever seen a fast one on track without a Corvette motor swap?

    NSX -- can't fault you for that -- mine had 90K miles when I bought it but was very well taken car of.

    Evo IX -- 117K street miles on mine, and I think it will last forever. Only 2 track days early in its life, and decided to keep it stock and use it as a daily driver.

    Integra Type-R. Can't help you there, but a lesser car than the other choices.

    Are they for track use, street use, or what? An FD can be a perfectly fine street car. I owned one for several years. It can be a bit fragile but is fine when well maintained. For track use it's not the best, but it is the best track car out of the lot- if you get my drift.

    For street. Want to start collecting some of these cars. Cool to drive it on street and they lose very little in depreciation if I ever to decide to sell later. My plan is to buy all 4 in the next 4 years.

    I'm thinking about a 04/05 mazdaspeed mx-5 for a cool sunny day street car. Just don't know if the price is worth it to not.

    Okay. In that case I think your good for sure. I sold my R1 for more then I bought it for.....I regret selling it every time I see one on the street.

    Those MSM just hit bottom of depreciation curve. They are a great deal now.
    I just bought one to convert to a race car. But mine was a rolled insurance write off

    Sorry, there was no price on that link. You would have to call to find out. Good luck!

    I keep thinking NC but an MSM definitely looks better. If I could find a Lava orange MSM . . .

    I did a search for an MSM the other day and only found one with in 300 miles of me. But I'm looking for a pristine example.

    Dont limit yourself to slightly higher mileage nsxs if the body and interior are in good condition. They are pretty reliable.

    If you get a DC2, get Ninja with the anti-theft devices. My vote goes for the NSX, but you said all four which is even more awesome.
