    I think hes asking how much would a setup like that cost.

    But It would be easier on the community if you let us know how much the party is asking for it and we could give you our opinons on wether or not it was a fair price.

    Ok -- $1.00 Canadian = $0.92 US if I read the conversion correctly.

    If my math is right the US price on the car would be about $13,700. Seems too high for the mileage unless the car is in superb condition.

    Thats about 13,700 in american dollars (according to google). I would definatley talk the guy down, IMO. (Not that you shouldn't not matter what the asking price). But I wouldn't pay that much for that particular car.

    You may have to drive alittle far to find a cheaper one if they don't go down on the price.

    We both got the same answer and agreed that it is too much though.

    100% Agree. Carfax only shows what has been recorded as being fixed. He could work at a body shop or be a mechanic and fixed the car up on the side.

    If your still talking Canadian, that's 11,900 American.

    I think you could easily find an LT1 is mint condition for 8k. Not enough motor mods to justify that price.

    If you happen to get pics of any of these, it would also help.

    ya both of those are rip offs man... don't bother... do the same thing as the rest of us Canadians... wait for a great deal somewhere state side and make a trip out of it. Thats what I did had a great time its was an amazing experience and in the end I got the EXACT car I wanted which I had no chance in hell finding in Canada especially for the price I bought it for.

    I've learned my lesson...I don't buy anything with over 50,000 miles......cause I like to mod out and I can't see putting in $$$$ if it's on it's last leg.......
