i am in college. part time job pays for what i have, it just takes alot of saving. i just make sure that i calculate everything out as carefully as possible.

some people on here have amazing cars though, i seriously wonder sometimes how and why also.

I work 25 hrs a week...

My dad thinks I sell drugs because I'm always buying new parts, but it's really because I don't waste my money on stuff like going to the movies or buying stuff that I won't have anything to show for later. I'll spend large amounts of money on stereo equipment, car stuff, but nothing on little things like candy or toys.

I go to college full time, (UC berkeley) and I work part time. Must say, this is the absolute poorest time for me in the year. (Finals = no work, plus end of the year means all of savings is gone.) I get my money through working my butt off during the summer to save for the rough times of school. Luckily I live at home, and that shoulders most of the financial burdens. My freind goes to school full time at santa cruz, and the poor bastard can't do anything to his car but drive it, i'm lucky enough to be able to spend some money on mods. (also I have a rare case, my little brother and i share cars, so he helps me with the mods as well. Great situation! My freinds wish they had him. )
There are some cars on the board that are absolutely gorgeous, I really don't know how they afford it all. ( can't wait till he starts working full time to support his hobby.)

I'm in college full time, and am building 2 cars at the same time; my 90 integra for me, and my 2000 civic for my sister. I bought the civic as a beater so I can work on the teg. My sister is 14, so in 2 years I'll give her the civic and she can do the swap on it

i'm probably really young compared to you guys. But i'm 16 and i make about almost 200 dollars a month. i babysit every weekend for $20 and i get 50 dollars allowance every 2 weeks. all i do is chores and be a good boy. but sometimes when i have the money sitting in my wallet i get tempeted to buy something, it's hard for me to save money.

well for what I have now I used to make a lot more money than I do now

damn career change

anyway for the motor I am building I am finding that doing a lot of talking to people that are also into hondas and what not you learn of other people who might have a particular part your lookin for or whatever and you can end up with some deals on parts rather than ordering them and having them shipped.

I am probaby going to end up with a prelude for my H22 swap that was wrecked over a year ago and is sitting in someones yard for under a grand complete swap minus what has already been stripped off the car (guage cluster, tail lights, various other ****) compair that to ordering it off of HMO

I am finding that just getting to know people and talking to the best way to afford this stuff

I go to college full time and work maybe 10+ hours a week. I use all the money i get to mod my car. I need to really learn to save my money instead. But what fun would that be?
