    Looking at getting a second Bird

    Well i've realized that i love my bird to much to drive the crap out of it, so i've been looking around to get a second bird that i can kinda beat up. I recently found one on craigslist, but not sure if its a good deal or not. What do you guys think?

    Thanks for any input

    Even with less than 80k, seems a little steep for a 97

    It says it is a 6 speed, but in the pics it is an automatic.... nice either way, little high though.

    If I ever got another F-body for beating on, I'd go with a Twin Turbo V6 Camaro...I couldn't stand having two birds...no variety.

    I was thinking of something along that line, but i just couldn't give up my love for birds. There so much more out there then a regular camaro. Dont get me wrong i love camaro's, but i just couldn't do it.

    I'm checking out the bird today to see if the car looks as good as the pictures. Hopefully i wont come to find some piece of crap. I'm going to try and get the price lowered, we'll see how that goes. I'll keep you updated as it goes. Thanks for the input!

    you can get a 6 speed ls1 for that price, and not from some ghetto corner autosales. I would stay away from that thing if I were you.

    Yeah i saw that bird, seemed like a good deal, but like you said it must have problems since its been up for such a long time. Plus i already have a ws6 vert. Reason im looking at this is i want the different body styling. Gives me something different and still good looking. I'll be looking at the car at 4:30 today and see if its worth it.

    +1 i got mine for 7500 after title and all those fun fees...i got it with 90k and its a 6 speed. i think it was a pretty nice deal, very clean, no rips in the interior.

    you can find better deals than that first one. If you are in the market look in our for sale section and ls1techs for sale section

    Well here are more pictures of the bird, i think i might go for it. I went to see it, and there is absolutely no flaw what so ever. No paint chips, no tears, just some stains on the floor mats (which could be easly replaced). Here are some more pictures of it.

    I like it.

    Always have liked the LT1 WS6's body style.

    Price is a little steep for the mileage, but it is pretty. Just remember though, you're buying this to more or less be a beater. It ain't gonna stay immaculate for very long, and that's when you'll regret not picking up a dirty mid-90s bird for 4-5grand.

    low miles, but you can find some low mile 96-97 lt1s for close to that price.

    Yeah, but i'm not looking to mod the heck out of it. Maybe a catback, but thats about it. Just want a fun DD that i can kind of beat up. I think it'll work for me.
