Are these cars pretty much dead? (discussion thread)
So, first off I love b-chassis cars and have since my first one about 20 years ago. I currently have 2 b14's (one mine, one my son's). I recently broke the motor on my car doing a pull and missing a shift (a lot of carnage lol). No biggie, I'll just get a new motor...... or wait..... maybe not. I remember stock ones being all over the place. And you could get det's and ve's at every single importer. Granted, I understand that these cars are now 20 to 30 years old, but you can still get rwd sr's all over the place. I understand supply and demand, but it's taken me quite some time to find a stock fwd sr. I guess next time I'll have to upgrade to a ve, I just needed to get my car back on the road. I bought our 14's cheap remembering that motors are cheap, so basically you have a fun little car for almost ever. But after this difficultly finding a simple stock fwd sr, I found myself asking, are these cars pretty much dead?

I didn't even know that site existed. Thanks Ben. And yeah kyle, that's pretty much what I thought and my frustration in starting this thread.

In any case I did find a motor and it will be here on Friday. I'm gonna get a clutch and axles and do it all at once so I basically have a "new" car when I'm done.

They are only dead if you let them die. There’s still a small loyal following but yes, they are past their prime for sure. Never quite attained the 510 status because FWD.

These cars are coveted by some. Never had a following like most others. I still love them

I’ve been building and driving them for 20 plus years now. Currently working on 2 b13’s classics now ?
