    You can get a V8 for that kind of money.
    It's on jackstands.

    Thts very low milage. But it is true that you can get a ls1 with around 90,000 miles give or take.

    Me personally, I would not do it. I just sold,my v6 firebird and believe me, they love money and attention.

    Too much.

    Unless he's a fantic of the color, the convertible, the v6 and can't find another one with similar miles in a similar condition, then its under the theory; its worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

    Yes i am looking at it for a female friend, she is 40 and is looking for a cruising car. I own a 00 TA with a forged LS3 pounding 525 to the tires.
    I honestly don't think she could handle more than a v6 lol. she just wants to put the top down and go through her mid life crisis. what is a far price for this car? I looked at it today and it's really clean the doors are not cracked, and there is very minimal wear on the driver seat. it was bought from an old couple in FL, drivin to MA and parked. the car is super clean in,out, and under.

    Dude...it sounds like a nice car she would be happy with....but not for that kinda money IMO. I wouldn't pay anymore than $6000 for it....but that's just me. I can't see spending that kinda money on a V6....regardless of miles.

    The price is definitely high. If possible I would let the seller sit on it for awhile and hope they come to their senses and drop the price. I wouldn't pay anymore than somewhere in the $7,000 range. Look to see if there are any other comparable cars and see what they are being sold for but I realize that is going to be tough.

    Agreed, that's why i was putting it out there for you guys to comment on.. I've never tried to price a v6 bird before, normally i would walk right past it.
