The short barrel would drive an SBR stamp, I just want to make sure there's no real issue with swapping uppers occasionally. It's not a permanent mod, because it's seriously pulling two pins and the thing falls off. I was trying to find a POC at the ATF to ask them, but I wasn't trying that hard.
As long as you can readily convert to the original spec, you'll be fine.

Also, might want to look into the AR 'pistol'. Doesn't require the SBR stamp and you can't affix a traditional RE with collapsible or fixed stock, but you can use a pistol buffer tube with something like the SIG brace and it doesn't count as a stock per the ATF tech branch: sigsauer.com/SigStore/sb15-pistol-stabilizing-brace-552.aspx

Ugm, is there really anything as a "fully depreciated $100K car"? Or even a fully depreciated $10K car for that matter?

I suppose at some point all cars bottom out and even trend up, but in most cases what you are talking about at that point is a 30 or 40 year old car that has some value as a collectible.

Once a car reaches the point where it is not depreciating (which means its value keeps up with inflation and stays flat or is appreciating in value) it is (to me at least) no longer a car but a museum piece.

A personal example, I would love to own a daily driveable MK1 MR2 again, and have seen several low mileage excellent examples come on the market in the past few years for what I would consider a reasonable price. I can't bring myself to buy it though because I know I would drive it like it was intended to be driven, and that just seems nearly wasteful at this point. I guess at some point I'll have to do restomod on one just to satisfy my itch while at the same time not destroying something that should be preserved.

I have a theory that no matter what year Jeep Wrangler you own it will never be worth less than $4500. That is a fully depreciated car in my mind. You could invest in an air cooled $100k Porsche 911 and it will appreciate.

Or, people will decide that there are too many 911 museum pieces and their value won't increase.

You might be surprised if you looked. Not many 911s are museum pieces.

At least the bank has to catch me to take the car back. (Hopefully they don't drive a v6 Camry).

Additionally, I bought my place at rock bottom price and excellent mortgage rate back in October 2012. Then after getting the insurance check from my last car, I put that plus my entire tax return down on the FRS. All of this means that my mortgage and car payments COMBINED are around $875/mo. I also live with two roommates in my place until my girlfriend moves in at the end of summer (at which point they will leave), so my mortgage/HOA/utilities are all split 2 or 3 ways.

There is no magic trick to making or having money. It's about being smart with when and how you spend it.
Pretty much the same deal here but with higher numbers for me. I lived at home until I was 22 and saved up, then put 20% down on a townhome. I get 50% of my mortgage payment every month back from renting my spare room. My mortgage and car payment alone cost me $1500 a month sadly.

Yeah, guy above paying $1500/month to own a brand new sports car and a townhouse, meanwhile my rent, utilities, and food costs more than that, toss in a car payment, some student debt and it's real easy to get in over your head out here.
