    What's interesting is all of those cars are new. Minus the 69 chevelle with 18k miles. :woah:. That must've been a dealer thing.

    Find out what the reserve is. Remove the flames and the big ass GTO stickers and you've got a nice car.
    LS1 vs LS2.? Both can be built very nicely and the cost for parts are the same give or take a few bucks. BOM is an '06 color only though. You can find 243's for cheap or go aftermarket, or like you said do bolt ons and some FI and you've got a very respectable street car.

    The last three BOM I've seen all have title flaws. Looks like everyone totals that color

    This one right here is probably one of my favorite blues and has a maggie under the hood. Got interested, then saw that it was a lease/fleet vehicle and has 3 owners already at 57k along with a documented accident. Don't know if I could dish out 14k for a car with that many red flags altho it looks gorgeous.

    I saved ALOT on mine because the 1st owner wanted a flawless car and after it got a small hit on the front passenger side he didn't want it anymore....bumper cover, hood and fender were repainted but NO structural damage....the headlight wasn't even damaged.....sometimes dents and dings are a good thing

    If the frame wasn't damaged then mostly it's just bolt on panel replacement. If the paint match is good and the price is right don't be scared off. But 16k for a salvage is steep.

    true, I dont think i'd pay 16k for a car with an R title.

    My mother got her 2002 Alero in 2003 for only $10,000 because it was hit in the front end and radsupporrt forward was replaced...but it has a clear title, not an R title....that varies by state also.

    its actually the opposite. moonroofs can be either tilted or removed and sunroofs are the ones with power sliding

    alright guys, opinions? what do you think of price and mileage. What could I try to talk a dealer down to?

    Here go to one or both of these:
    http://nada.com/
    http://www.kbb.com/

    Enter all the info that you can and it will tell your what the book value is. Offer 20% under book and go from there.

    Almost all the dealers that I've worked for used the NADA guide for trade-in value. The resale value is dependent
    on how much they have in the car and how much they feel they can get. Look for new tires, brakes, etc. If they are new they will be less flexible on the price because that is cash they had to put out.

    I'm on the fence with the halo headlights and it looks like it needs tires/alignment. The pic of the left front tire looks like the cords are showing.

    On the way home I found an 09 g8 gt in black with black/red two tone interior. Guess what my new car is...
