    If it were a convertible it would be close but for a T top car I would go 24k at the most if it is indeed a real car and not a rollback. Be very careful with low mileage vehicles like this. I would not make an offer until I saw the car and spent time going over it. Also, bring cash. Cash talks and BS walks. Good luck.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
    My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

    It is a t-top car, you can see the break after the windshield. don't think they ever made T/A's as a hard top

    I've seen them sell for $30k in the past few years. There were 3 of them from a local collector here that sold. A Firehawk, a WS6, and an SS,,,,all low mile SLP cars that still had plastic on the seats as if they weren't dealer prepped,,,,they all sold at the $30k mark. Usually they go to another private collector.

    So I don't see this price out of the ordinary from what I've witnessed in these neck of the woods. There are plenty out there if you look around. My buddy has his 98 WS6 he bought new, still sitting in a climate controlled garage with 4,000 miles on it. It's absolutely amazing to see these cars (even though they aren't that old) in brand new condition. You see so many nowadays that are ragged out or modded to the point it's not tastefull.

    30k? Ummm NO!

    It lost nearly half it's value the moment it was driven off the lot new.. 10 yrs later? I don't think so.

    $15k MAX............

    We don't have to agree on the prices, lord knows I wouldn't pay $30k for one, but there are still people buying these things for that kind of dough, no doubt about it. So I don't see the price as "out of the ordinary".

    Personally Smittro, if I were ready to blow $30k or more on a car, I'd be looking at 40+ year old classics
