    Absolute highest price I would pay would be $12,000. Check your local Bluebook or Nada. All the extras sometimes hurts the value, but if you were going to do it anyway, BONUS!!! Blue book shows this car worth between $9,500 and $11,500 in the Denver Area. You will be lucky to get 12k for it.

    yes i know sometimes the mod can hurt, however that usually winds up being to the average buyer... but the more educated f-body person will sometimes pay more, becuas ethey know the price of these parts and install prices... all my mods are in excellent condition and professionally installed, i personally think i could get more than 12,000

    I don't think it's worth anywhere near 12k. I think you would be lucky to get 10k for it. I'm sure it's a nice car but it's a Z not an SS. You acknowledge paint and interior flaws. I don't see any really pricey mods that would bring up the value. An educated fbody buyer is going to want a deal and 12k for a 59000 mile A4 00 Z28 is not a deal. There was a mint 02 near me with less mods but less miles and the guy let it go for 10k. Good luck with it.

    well illl hope for the best... but i know it doesnt have like heads or supercharger or cam.. but it has over 3,500 in parts plus install was at least another 1500... i mean parts and install around 5,000 and all parts are perfect condition... if someoone is looking to mod they are saving alot of money

    if you want your money out of it pull all your aftermarket stuff off and sell it individually, and then sell the car as stock. in cali you could get 12 for it, back east the prices are lower, so i dunno

    Rule #1 when it comes to modding or restoreing, YOU WILL NEVER GET YOUR MONEY BACK, Like the previous post said. Take all your after market stuff off and sell it on your local craigs list, ebay or on here, then sell your car stock. Nobody will pay over bluebook on a car unless it has a different rear end or a stroker motor with top name parts (Little ify there too).
    Banks will not lend over blue book, so someone looking to buy your car would have to come up with the difference. If that where to happen, more than likely they would chose a SS over a Z anyway. (Nothing against a Z, however they just are not worth as much).

    I have had over 25 muscle cars since I was 16. Very rarely did I recoup all the money I had invested in the car. A few of them yes, I had a few rare SS chevelles that I made money on but for the most part never got all my money back on them.

    Bad thing about our f-bodys. There are still plenty of them out there, and they are depreciateing in value everyday.

    yeah our cars are in that phase right now, similar to the 1980's where all the bad ass 60's muscle was still being driven around and gas was just to much so people sold them and sold them cheap, this is kinda whats happening today, im just glad i got my hands on one kinda rare car, my 02. my 99 aint nothing special just a dealer installed ss package,

    as for the car for sale, take all the stuff off, sell me the bilsteins lol
    and go from there

    I don't think so. I live in northern VA close to DC there is a lot of money around here.

    You are right about the money you have in mods but you just won't see that money back. Even if you had some really pricey mods like SC, moser rear, etc...you would only get back a small percentage of the value. Most people like to mod their own vehicles and look to find something that is unmolested. There is a buyer for every car and if you can find someone who is in love with your car and has cash maybe you can get 12k, but I think that will be tough. Your best bet is what the others are saying return it to as close to stock as you can and sell your parts.

    dude you can find people out there who are willign to pay more, i see ws6s with 70k miles on them bone stock goin for about 15k sometimes, and then sometimes i see WS6s with less than 10k miles goin for 18,000dollars, you only have to convince 1 person the car is worth what you want to sell it for.

    There are suckers everywhere but you can't bank on finding one. Seeing a car listed at 15k doesn't mean that's what it sells for either. I tried to buy a 00 M6 z28 vert with 17k miles on it. It was listed at 19k I offered them 15.5k for it but they wanted to hold on to it and try to find a sucker. I bought another car and that one ended up selling for 15k, 500 less then what I offered. Most of the time your car ends up selling for what it's worth not book value, not what you want for it but what the average joe is willing to pay for it.

    Yes, maybe but that is a WS6. They are worth more. Try doing a blue book search on a vehicle (Z28 or formula/trans am), then after you get a figure, then go back and add the SS or WS6 option it adds close to $2200 more for a car.

    Not everybody has 10-15k right up front for a car. Most cars are bank financed. (Unless you take a 401k loan, 2nd mortgage etc...). Banks will Not lend you more than a car is worth. They go by NADA and Kelley blue book values when considering a loan and in extremely rare circumstances a certified appraisal from a reputable company.

    Me personally, I always do my research, Look at what Kelly and Nada says the cars worth. I look at Car-fax. I have never paid over book value on a car in my life, and I would bet 98% of the people looking for a Camaro wouldn't either. I would however look at the mods a car has and factor that in to the equation. Like I said $12,000 is the max he will probably get for that car if he is extremelly lucky.

    It is not like it is a rare muscle car, There is a whole lot of z-28 camaros out there to choose from with a lot lower miles.
