    $5900 99 pewter t-top Z28 (Florida native + extras)

    Bought from a dealer in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida just months ago- flew down and drove it all the way back with no problems. 156k on the clock.

    8 cyl LS1 engine runs very smooth and pulls HARD
    Transmission shifts great/no problems with OD etc
    3.23 gear with quiet strong posi
    Clean (not perfect interior but very good)
    Very traction limited in stock form
    No t-top issues
    SLP lid (stock lid as well)
    BMR lcas (and stock lcas)
    BMR boxed subframe connectors
    Rear Bilstein HD shocks
    Suspension techniques 35mm front sway bar w/new bushings & endlinks
    Fuzions

    I have extra parts I was looking forward to putting on in the spring. Would rather sell to someone who wants the whole package. I considered driving it this winter but with business will have to put 10k+ before March and just don't feel comfortable with this much RWHP in the snow at highway speeds I tried these Winterforce studded steels (probably should have got 4 corner blizzacks) but they just aren't cutting it for 85mph stability.

    Extras included with car:
    - Dual electric DMH cutouts with pipe
    - LS6 intake
    - ported throttle body with bumpstop mod
    - TCI streetfighter torque converter - checked by TCI on their dyno 200 miles ago - good to go
    - 2 studded steel Winterforce snow tires - I think these would be great for someone just doing local driving but highway 1000+ miles per week in the winter is NOT a good idea

    Small issues:

    - AC pulley bearing bad/was working but stopped a month after I got it/can hear it's bad
    - 10 bolt seal is leaking a bit but nothing out of the ordinary. if you've had an fbody for a while you know what I mean
    - Wiper motors were replaced but only works well in low setting, high hits the bumpers and I haven't taken the time to investigate or adjust.
    - The usual problems with the damn window motors. They both work but if you let it go up too far, driverside occasionally get stuck in the up position (inevitably when you need to pay a toll)
    - cracked front dash / the pure plastic part back towards where it connects with the bottom of the windshield
    - windshield crack 3 inches long right on driveside edge/barely noticeable but someone better head it off if not fully replacing
    - stock rims are functional but in poor shape/ cracked centercaps, dinged, curb rash, etc still look OK but you know it deserves much better new ones!

    MINOR BODY DAMAGE FROM JUST LAST WEEK:
    Had a little incident with letting my brother borrow it and going to hang out with his friends
    1. Some lady's bumper
    2. Mr. Guardrail

    It of course does not have comprehensive because I'm 24 and the rates are skyhigh (but would have been worth it in hindsight haha). I don't want to fix this out of pocket and there's the huge amount of winter travel thing so time to cut my losses. I hope to have another sometime next year but sadly it won't be this light metallic pewter one.

    My total into it is over $8k etc etc etc. like it matters, right? Call me to pickup a good deal. I'm through and officially hate midwest winters.

    PRICE: $5900 (includes extra parts)
    TRADE: Reliable semi built AWD eclipse/talon/dsm etc ready for winter + CASH

    Can always take out some of the extras and lower the price as well. Could even replace LCAs, lid, front sway, etc with stockers.
