Stripping my 97 for sale to a spec guy...

I had a thought this weekend at the DE (which I thoroughly enjoyed, btw!)

My 97 isn't worth much more than $10-11k to the right person who appreciates the fact that I have updated the wheels, tail lamps, headlights (litronics), seats (from a 2001 Carrera), cluster, steering wheel (2002 Carrera 3 spoke), center console, stereo, leather door panels (from a 97 w/o airbags... rare indeed), and replaced the entire suspension with adjustable control arms and kSport coilovers, not to mention the motor replacement at 75k and younger 5 speed tranny at 85k.

What do you all think of the idea of stripping all this stuff off the car when I'm ready to sell it in three or four years and selling the pieces on eBay and then selling the car to a spec guy for $8k stripped down to what he would need to build a race car?

I know I'll never get the $27,000 I have put into repairs and mods (incl. the purchase price) back out of the car, but I'm wondering if I can get more for it this way.

Thoughts?
