Default Help me out here! Please!

Okay, I have a question for you all. I have a 94 coupe, and I really like it. I think it's pretty fun to drive, however it does have a buttload of miles on it (around 212 thousand) I don't know how much I could sell the car for, so I was considering doing an engine swap in the future when my stock engine blows.

Basically, my question is, does a chassis take wear from high mileage daily driving, or do you think that I could keep the high mileage car that I have now and just swap a better engine/transmission and suspension into it? I plan to do autocross in a couple of years, so any help on the matter would be great! Thanks!

Well, Hondas are unibody construction, so officially, there's no chassis to speak of. That said, the rigid bits of the car won't take enough stress from 212,000 miles of driving to justify selling it instead of giving it a heart transplant and a new pair of shoes. Basically, what I'm trying to say is keep it.
