    Too Trade or not to trade

    First off my uncle has a 98 Z that has the works...headers, cam, exhaust, etc. The car has 108k miles on it but the motor only has 35k and the transmission has 6k, he recently got this car for my younger cousin but come to find out its too much power for my 17 yr old cousin and he cnt really drive a stick that well either. Anyway he ask me if i knew anybody that wants it and I started thinking that maybe i could trade and throw him a couple bones. My car is completely stock also 98 Z with 148k on it i kno my car is reliable, So my question is should i trade, yes im getting a great deal but with other ppls mods you never know what your getting and this would be my DD. Just want some suggestions from ppl that kno a lot about cars and mods. His car probably has over $30k worth of work done to it and i kno the guy my uncle got it from and hes a certified technician (Knows what he is doing). So should i do it or not

    Heres a pic of the car

    I would....depending on how much extra $ you're going to throw in. As long as it was modded properly, it should be a good car.

    Im going to give him 1500 with it. The guy my uncle got it from rebuilds and restores cars all the time so im pretty confident its been in good hands and its never been to the track either which is a surprise. I drove the car earlier and it seems to be in tip top shape. The only thing is when your barely going like in a parking lot or something its like the car wants to bog down almost, youve got to feather the clutch just to keep it going is that normal for a car with a lot of power. Or it might be have to get used to driving stick again lol

    Exactly. Mine does the same thing.

    Sounds like a good deal to me. But, it all depends on what you'll be happy with. Good luck!

    I would do that deal. You are getting the same year vehicle but less miles and all of those mods for free. The 1500 dollars you are giving him will be the difference in miles so that means FREE MODS. Also, you did not say if your car is an automatic since your cousin does not do well with a 6 speed. Congrats, great deal.

    Nice...almost has a sleeper look going. I'm sure that all you have to do is hear it and that goes out the window though...
