I surely hope you mean $1500.00.. If so, that's a good asking price.

I got ~$2700 for My loaded y87 01 Camaro with zero damage, plus just an exhaust, and 120K on the clock..
It sold for ~$5300 off the dealers lot, it booked for ~$5700.00 in excellent condition..
Mods don't raise the value of a car.. Many times they lower it.. What you put in and what you get out are two different things.
I'm gonna stay with $1500.00 as a good asking price for a car that will be considered in "fair" condition..

I tend to agree that at least in my opinion, I prefer a stock car. Some exceptions are better of course, such as the WS6 hood. Its worth a bit if in good shape. I see them selling locally for 600-800. As for mechanical mods, it always makes me wonder who did the work, and how well it was done, not to mention, what else was messed with like splicing into the wiring harnesses or etc. Apperance mods are a very touchy deal too, cause what floats one guys boat may sink 5 others. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder you know.
As for the asking price, well here in my area, I am seeing nice V6 Firebirds selling for around 4-6 grand depending on how low the miles are. Start adding body damage of any kind and higher mileage, and the price drops. For comparison, I recently bought my 98 TA with 135,XXX miles for 4,800 and it needed only tires, brakes, rocker skirt, windshield and a couple of 20 dollar plastic interior parts. Since buying it, I probably have about 5,350 bucks invested in the car including the purchase price.
I personally would aim for 2500 and be prepared to take a little off in negotiations. You might check with the dealer too about a trade in. You can bet that the dealer probably has 6-8 grand at most invested in the car you want, and its possible that they will give you more for a trade in than you can sell it for. Id at least check.

Bummer i was hoping old girl worth few more pennies kinda just wanna keep it now an save up a lil longer cause i know id regret selling it for couple grand at most later on in life and ya I've put alot into it majority stuff just routine maintenance but i upgrade what was replaced and I've got good prices on all parts but the hood is in awesome shape and i went to body shop locally had him look for one he fond two ws6 hoods both 2000$ in used condition and it was hard to find them so i thought mine was worth lil more
