    Did he do the work himself or does he have paperwork showing the work was done by a shop?

    I think that if a reputable shop does the work, in most cases (I know, not all) there is less worry about buying a car that's been modded.

    This is true. Ironically I bought my wifes 2000 SS in Florida a couple years ago when her car was totalled like yours (wow so many things happening the same way,,,spooky )
    Anyway, Although hers was slightly tinkered with, it was all done by Vinci down there in Florida with all the receipts, so I was a little more comfy with it. I even found they remembered the car and gave me additional info. Wasn't anything done that radical though, it still had to pass emmissions down there.
    It only had 48,000 miles on it 2 years ago and I paid a little less than what you are looking at. Turned out to be an SLP car too with some added optional goodies.
    I would think in this economy if you look around some more you might find an even better deal.

    As long as the work is done right might as well let someone pay to have the weak points fixed for you

    Got a 2000 SS hardtop in mind, 6 speed and 74000 miles. Bone stock except for a borla.
    Looks like a very clean car and it'm leaning towards that for now.

    A buddy and myself did all the work on my car and I would say its better then any sponsor or shop could do If you care about your car, you take the extra steps to make sure its right and not to rush anything Thats just me tho!

    Well i'm probably gonna buy it back and this new guy with the black SS would take the jetski and motor as part of the deal. Thinkk i could come out on top and hopefully not have to lose my wheels.

    And i agree about doing the work yourself, if you care that much about your car, most people make sure the job is done 100% perfect, but some people just wanna slap everything together to win races. Thats the crap that scares me. I'd be a lot happier with a stock one

    that would be nice, good time too. One thing i regret is i never got to run mine down the quarter. It would have been interesting to see how those BFGs would hook at the track. Soon enough.

    That's another reason that makes buying these things used (especially modified) a scary proposition

    The blue one with the 23X/23X cam, built 12 bolt with 3.73s told me the best he has run was 12.5. I would have expected more. But yeah that whole cam and best time thing kind of turned me off of that car.
