    GREAT!

    havent bought it yet... Will meet up on Friday to do the exchange... got to then to really think it over...

    thing is it will NOT be a garage queen.. but be driven 4X a week for Police Duty....... My partner has a 2001 Z with 182K on her, and had no major problems.

    I live on an island and you cannot find these things too often, and to ship from the states add another 1K to 1.5K.... If there is a Camaro for sale its usually high miles and raced hard...

    saw that... but the shipping would tack on another 2K easy... I also wouldnt be able to inspect it for myself, even though I bet it would be immac.

    Why would YOU be having to pay for the car? Is Sheriff Andy Taylor your boss? Are you Barney Fife? I smell BS here.

    This will be your unmarked police car? LOL, so police have to pay for there cars these days? If you are a cop and are planning on buying this to be a cop car, then go with a charger or something without a ls1 in it. And let someone who is gonna put it to good use drive the car.

    i dont think the idea of having an ls1 in a police car is a bad thing (unless im running from it) but i think wasting a mint cond. low mile one is stupid

    I think its a waste for a ls1 car to be a cop car, it wont be taken care of like it should. Cops do basic things to keep the cars running for as long as possible but you know cop cars arent taken care of like a LS1 owners car who truely loves F-bodys. Not to mention it will be beat on lol

    Why would I make something like this up? We are given a monthly car allowance of 550.00. This goes toward any loan payments, and upkeep... These cars are our personal veihcles also, so it would be very well taken care of. Usually Officers have a car they use only for work...I know it sounds made up and we must be the only Police Department in the world that does this. If you think about it, it actually saves the department a lot of money in the long run. How many Officers do you see actually give a crap about their blue and white? Those things usually get beat into the ground.

    There are requirements though... The car must be...
    any V-8 or the highest V6 avail...
    Able to seat 4 adults
    NOT a luxury vehicle eg. Cadi, Benz, BMW, Etc....
    2 or 4 doors
    not more than 10 years old
    Also recently they will not allow any stripes on the car... (a friend of mine bought a mustang with a stripe kit (Roush i think) and had the ford dealership remove them!!

    Still if its gonna be used in the line of duty, things may happen to it that you can control. If i were you i would try for something a little newer, GTO or G8. a G8 GT cop car would be baller

    His 18k asking price is actually, IMO, a good deal. Assuming he knows, like most do, that you never ever get what your asking for, i'm sure he's high-balled it a little bit. But yes, if someone was looking for a good, low mileage example I think the price is a good starting point. I've seen SS and WS6 cars with that kind of mileage priced at over $20k.

    Guy I know just sold his Silver M6 2002 SS with 11,500 miles for $16k. This car was garage kept and in mint showroom condition. I think youre getting hosed down on this deal.

    If I added what it would cost to ship a car here from the 48 states... then its about the same... Everything has a way of costing a lot more here.... Plus try finding a nice Camaro here also... In the end I think I over paid (obviously) but I have a really clean and cool 02 SS!

    thanks to everyone here for your help! Ill post pics as soon as I pick her up tomorrow!

    Good buy! I always believed as long as you can afford it it's nothing wrong with it. Can't wait to see pics.
