Short answer is no.

Long answer is no because I've spent so much money/time/tears/sweat/blood on this car, it has earn a spot beside my Volvo as one of those cars I really don't want to sell, but if you are going to give me a lot of money for it for some bizzare reason that may be due to your coke habbit, I won't say I will not even consider it, but has to be a lot.

He is being sarcarstic and saying that in order for you to offer him the amount of money that he would consider selling the car for, you would need to be mentally inhabited in some way. No straight thinking person would pay/offer that much.

Chigga, correct?

Actually debating to part the car out or sell it as a whole.

I guess if I part it the first things would go would be wheels & brakes, suspension, tranny is in good shape, almost new clutch, dynavin d99, almost brand new boston acoustics SC50s.

That's a pile of varnish in that engine, that sucks

What's the oil change history on the car? Assuming you aren't the original owner, what was the maintenance history?

Yes, but I don't think I'll be selling it, can't find anything I want to replace it.

First one had this knocking sound that we couldn't find, did the whole job of guides and chains, even did vanos transmissions ($500/pop) and the lifters, at the end it still knock, no power loss just knocking, the main suspect was main bearings but at that time (around 2011) it was cheaper to get used engine, so I found this one with around 120k documented mileage, the engine was healthy as it put down 260whp/300lb ft on the dyno but the guides just shattered one day.
