    1999 Camaro SS, M6, 39k, black. He's asking 15,000, but I refuse to pay that much for a 99. I want to make him an offer on it. He said he's willing to work with the price "a little."

    Pictures are shitty, but it's local to me.

    Grats. I want one. How much should I offer on it?
     
  4. I paid 12000 for my 2000 with 63K on it. its all about the market, mine was the only SS 6 speed in 500 miles.

    I would think 13500-14000 would be fair, but Im not really sure.

    Eh even that is high. I can get an 01 Z28 or T/A with 50-60k for anywhere between 11-13.

    Christmas time isn't exactly the best time to sell a car so I figure I might be able to get it cheaper.

    I've been hitting up autotrader, craigslist, & LS1 tech everyday looking for a car. I'm not in a hurry to buy one, I just want one.

    i paid 16 for my 01 SS ...

    with 14k miles on it :o
     
  9. I would say buy the z28, there is no power difference (well if it has the dual/dual exhaust it might make 5hp more) plus you could de-badge it and claim its a v-6 and smoke folks

    I'm thinking about offering about 12 for it, if I do follow up on it. I honestly don't want to be spending much more on a car. I have roughly 8500 cash right now, and am going to sell my current car between 5-6.
     
  17. you'd be surprised, mine at idle, cutout closed, with a ORY, headers and a cam sounds like a v-6 with flows. WOT is a different story. You could just run a really quite exhaust and an E-cutout.

    I don't care about it looking like a v6. I want it to look like & sound like it has a v8, because damn it, it does.

    lol everyone on the forums i've posted on is talking me down on my offer. Some guy on LS1tech was like "10.5" and you're like 10. Fuck, if I could get that car for 10, I'd be happy as a pig in shit.

    I'd love to have a WS6. But I'm looking for either a TA or a Z28, doesn't matter to me because I love em both.
