I think my classes would've been $50/month for what I was doing, I think I paid every now and again ranging from $20-50.

I have a 1985 AWD Civic prepped as a H stock rally car as well as a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS that I use for Auto-X and Rally. I used to race Auto-X with a 91' MR2 turbo and a Turbocharged 240sx.
I've also got a lot of seat time with an Integra Type R, STi, Porsche 911, Race Prepped 84' Mustang, CRG Rebel 120cc shifter cart and miatas.

He showed proficiency in getting the tail pipe nice and juicy and greases up the drive shaft well, but his demeanor and lack of (steering) box experience made him unqualified.
I hope you're not putting that on your resume Sirc!

The CRX on the other hand, can be made to be STUPID fun and absurdly fast for cheap. Drop a B18C from a GSR into that thing (which you can purchase the engine mount kit ($100~) and conversion harness ($80~) from most import performance places) and a little OEM ITR suspension and some decent tires, you will have an incredibly incredibly quick little car for under $5k.
The nissan will be what most import cars are stock when you drop all that cash into it. Granted, with what the market is right now, you could probably sell both for around $2500-3000 and put a down payment on a loan to get an '03 WRX. THey can be had for around $6-9k. And I'd get an '03, because in '02, they manufactured the rear differential incorrectly and didn't set the lash on the ring gear and it's off by a few thousandths so around 40-50k miles, the gears just try to eat each other. That happened to the differential that I put onto my 00' Impreza.

Honda CRX, nice but done to hell and a lot lighter than the NX2000.
NX2000 is basically a Sentra SE-R in a swoopier body. Depending on what you wanna do with it, would depend on what to sell.
You can swap just about any Honda engine into the CRX, but the NX2000 already has an SR20DE in it.
You will get more money selling the Honda, and i think you would have more fun with the NX2000, especially with the T-Tops.
SR20DE + Turbo= Loads of fun, on the cheap!!
Or sell them both and get a DSM. You will have plenty of money left over to make it faster than most of the modded imports out there.

The one in the NX is a piece of ****. It lacks coil on plug ignition, oil squirters in the head, compression is not optimal for turbo, it uses weaker head studs and gaskets, the pistons and rods aren't the same, even the block design is completely different. The only thing it shares with the SR20DET is that it's 2.0L and nissan gave it the SR family name. It's not cheap to turbocharge and keep it alive.
So, you're stupid and wrong.
Also, if you get a DSM, you'll have an awful time owning a car that is in a perpetual state of death. It sucks absolute **** when trying to negotiate any kind of handling out of it and brakes worse than a lincoln navigator. Only get one if you have 2 other cars and is only willing to drive it on the weekends for a few hours at a time to drag race if you plan on doing anything that isn't keeping it stock. Crank walk's a bitch.
