Decisions Decisions

Having recently finished my evo 5rs build i have found myself in a dilema as to which car to sell. I planned on selling my evo 6 gsr which i have owned 11 years (which is currently advertised).

I want to get into doing a few track days in an evo, and in all honesty the evo 6 has just sat since i restored it. The problem is i have found myself attached to this car (sad i know) and now people have shown interest in buying it i dont want to sell

Question is, do i sell the evo 5 and do some bits to the 6 and track that or visa versa????

Opinions welcome

It’s a hard decision but if you are struggling to decide which one to keep then I thing you should just keep them both problem solved and have some fun in both of them

Me personally I love your v but I’d keep the vi it’s too nice to let someone wreck and you know it’s been looked after.

Talking

Well considering that I'm in the market for an evo 5 rs
I'd have to strongly advise in keeping that amazing 6 and get rid of the 5 rs...............and give me first refusal of course

I might sell my GTR and buy an evo if somebody with an evo might sell theirs. But if someone that might sell their evo actually doesn't, then maybe I wont. I haven't decided to decide, yet.

Here and there however, I acknowledge when somebody returns to what the Lancer Evo has consistently been for me: a vehicle with annihilating cornering capacity. This specific Evo has somewhat of a celebrated past as well, which just adds enthusiasm to a previously energizing stage. Initially created as a gymkhana vehicle by Racing Garage Suntec in Tokyo, it was sent out to Ireland a year ago where it has kept on developing with a comparable ethos under its new proprietor.
err...........
