How much would be good?
Well I'm thinking of selling my 1998 Trans Am to buy my childhood dream car that started my love for Trans Am's (its a 1995 383 Supercharched LT1 Stroker M6) My 98 has 195k on the clock. Engine still runs strong. Tranny was rebuilt at 194k, its a auto. Paint is alright and interior needs pretty much just seats. Window on driver side is loose and passenger window goes down and up slowly. Door panels have just been replaced. Needs a/c vents but a/c doesnt work i ripped it out when i did the headers. Has pacesetter lt's, texas speed ory,flowmaster and k&n fipk2. Besides that it's all stock. Here's some pics of my 98. It now has tt2's that arent in the best shape though. So i'm trying to find out a good reasonable price that i could set on this 1998?
Right now i have this 1998 Trans Am and a 2002 WS.6 so I'm choosing to sell this one to get the LT1. I already have my 02 ws.6 so I already have a good LS1 with a M6 too
I also found out more details about the LT1 that i wanna buy. Its all forged with LT4 heads and a cam too and stroked with 4.10's and a M6. This car just keeps getting better and better!

wow thats a ton of miles. maybe ask 5,000?. why not buy another ls1. even though the lt1 is supercharged it seems like a downgrade to me :/

This yellow LT1 is the car that started my passion for Trans Am's. The guy used to live down the street from me. I remember being in my room watching cartoons and hearing him start the car, I would run outside and stand by the fence just to hear it and see it drive by I was like 10 at the time

I think anywhere from 4,000 to 5,500 would be fair. I bought my 2002 SS convertible with 62,000 miles for 10,500. You should get bites on craigs list2002 Camaro SS/M6. Volant CAI, 80mm TB w/spacer, cat delete w/ ory, borla XR-1 w/ cme, custom tune, 3.73's, 8,000k HID headlights and foglights, 19" staggered ruff 278 wheels.

With craigslist, I got no real bites on a probably better car. Only scammers responded. And locally there's likely a shortage of supply, while in Texas there seem to be many Trans Ams for sale.

I would keep the ls1

I would probably just keep it. It's like my 93 5.o the ext looks like new with fresh paint pretty new top, motor and hydralics, but 120k and needs some new seats and some other interir fixes. It's better to keep it than sell it for a couple grand.
My friend has a 99 Formula Hawn that with 175k original motor and trans. Runs as good as my 85k car. Interior is nice. The previosowner painted it at a MAACO or some other cheapo place so it could use some prep and a new coat of blk and it's a 6spd. He only paid like $5k and Hawk is more rare. I have a 98 in like almost new condition with about $10 in bolt ons and full suspension and probably be luck to get $8 or so for my car, not that I would sell it.1998 Trans Am 85k miles.

since you already have a 02 ws6 why not get the car you have always wanted? why do you need to ls1's? get something different!

I don't mean to sound rude either guys, but seems like the point is being misunderstood here. I'm gonna edit the first post
