    1st off i gotta say and im gonna sound like a dick but i dont mean to. your only 18 and that car is in to good of condition to be a daily driver.unless you are going to really take care of it which is extremely hard when your 18.
    2nd i have to agree with some of the others on here when they say you can get something cheaper. dont buy the car just because you want a ws6. look around make sure you buy the exact car you want and dont end up sayin ..I wish..and by all means if this car is the car you end up really wanted then buy it.

    No I didn't. Everyone kept posting notes about why it has different seat covers.

    I made a statement early on that it IS THE SAME PHUKIN SELLER ON EBAY THAT LISTS ALL KINDS OF CUSTOM INTERIOR PACKAGES.
    The seller likes to update the interior to something new & attention grabbing. It worked didn't it?!? The seller buys cars, adds product to it to make it more attractive & then resells them. There is no harm in that. And if you don't like the price then walk away. There's no need to argue that a $800 package doesn't justify a $1500-3000+ value adder. Big deal, ..., At least the seller has the balls to tear off all the old stuff & add something new.

    How many custom interior packages do you see floatin' around here?!? Not many at all.

    Two F-bodies cruisin' down the road. One is in original condition, one has added wheels, stripes, & custom interior. Which one do suppose will attract the potential buyer?


    People respond to the original post & never read the replies, ...,

    Go back and read my post where I said aftermarket mods do not add to the value of any car. FACT. Anybody watching Barrett Jackson knows this. These cars are not worth this amount money period. To answer your question the original car will attract more buyers. But there's always gonna be a pigeon walking on the lot.. (like yourself)

    I've seen ws6 verts with less than 20k on the odometer go for less than $14,000, and the vert is more valuable than the coupe or t-top. That car is so not worth $17,000.

    Also, i can tell you don't like gold and black scheme. It would be useless to buy a car with all those extra parts if you don't like them and intend on removing them anyway. In fact that may be part of why the price is higher than normal, he probably wants more money for what he added. If you try to negotiate and he tries to justify the price by what he added he is trying to rip you off and he knows it, stripes and emblems don't cost enough to justify such a jump in price, at that point give him the And tell him to fuck off. A vehicle is only worth whats on the title, it doesn't matter what he added and on that note judging by the images you posted it doesn't seem like he added much anyway. And what's this bullshit this guy feeding you, the car doesn't have an intake i can tell just from your pictures he's still got the stock lid :lmao

    look around some more, check with your local dealers, autotrader.com, and check the for sale section on this site. You could get a ta with less miles at a lower cost, with far more mods, and without that gold+black color scheme you seem prone on getting rid of anyway.

    I wish you the best of luck on your search, hope you find what you're looking for, and 18th happy birthday.



    i agree with this guy don't jump in to quick take yourrrrrrr time...

    you better check and make sure its a factory WS6 b/c thats not the WS6 air box lookin from the picture, he could have just put the WS6 hood on and bumped the price 3 grand.

    i really like the gold stitch seats. not sure why this guy put stripes on all those fbodies. not everyone likes stripes... hes done some ugly ugly crap to some of those cars. the red seats in the black ta are hideous.

    but i agree, $17800 is too much for that car. if it had 15k miles on it id say its worth that. but its worth $15k imo. if he wants to move the car hell sell for that.

    and i agree, if youre just gonna take off all the gold, just buy a black one for $13k somewhere else.

    actually a car isnt "worth" anything other than what someone is willing to pay for it so ..if the kid is willing to pay that money than to him the car is worth that much ...on a side not personally i would not pay that much! lol

    Exactly, and he doesn't even like the rims and color scheme so why pay so much for what he intends to change anyway.
