    97 firebird trans am WS6

    My son has a 97 firebird trans am WS6 that we bought 2 years ago. Mileage is just under 79k. Car runs great and did have performance upgrades on it when we bought it. Unfortunately, he wrecked it a few weeks ago -- damaged the passenger side front panel, door and t-top glass.

    I'm looking to get rid of the car "as is", but I don't know what the best option would be. Should I try to sell it outright? Or by auction? Can anyone suggest any other options?

    Thanks.

    post it on your local craigslist and see what kinds of bites you get, if you cant get anyone who wants it as is; how much would it cost to fix it is it mainly cosmetic?if it only cost a little money fix it.
    if you can't sell it as is part it out. got any pics?

    Thanks to those who replied. Yes, I do need to get pics posted, sorry I didn't get that done the first time. I will try an ad on craigslist to see what happens.

    Thought about parting it out, but I am so busy as it is, I just know I won't have time to mess with all of that.

    Yes, all the damage from the wreck is cosmetic. It has just a few other issues such as the headlight motors misbehaving and the power antenna having a mind of its own.

    Thanks again.

    Well if it is just cosmetic then def sale as is no need to tear down a perfectly good car that has only cosmetic damage.
