    HEY GUYS JUST SOLD MINE FOR $8700 YEA!!!!!!! Thats close enough to $9000 I'm already saving up to add to the $8700 for my next one I'm looking for a great deal and I have patience because I will wait till next spring if I have to. I'm still looking for black, but I will still repaint it because I want carshow quality shine out of it even when it is dirty. Do not get me wrong, it will always be clean.

    Congrats man.
    If your gonna make your new one look like your old v6 i'd save a few hundred $$$ by buying a Z28 over the SS.
    That's if your going wild with the appearance again.

    Thanks! Yea, I've thought about it. I guess now it really matters of which one I find first with a great deal! I am not buying it from a dealership because they try to rip everyone a new one on the price and milage. By that I mean it is possible to find an SS with a great price and low milage too! I've seen a couple on the net, and they are rare. The one I get I hope will be fully loaded too!

Not to mention they can screw shit up putting it back together...I fix so many cars at work with electrical problems because body shops messed them up (i.e. grounds in the wrong place, broken wiring harnesses etc).

    When body's are painted at the factory, they get into all those crevices that you will catch hell painting black. Engine bay, door jambs, and numerous other places. It won't look right if you change it.

    I am with Dip, sell the V6, and go get a black Z or SS. Problem solved, power found, owner happy.

    Edit:
    Maybe I should have read the rest of the thread!

    I got mine for 8 grand (85K, 326 whp & 4.10 gears). I added rims, cam, intake, Z06 brakes for about 4 grand. 12 grand for a 372 whp snake eater that looks good and will put your face in the windshield when you hit the brakes!

    That was private party by the way, dealerships will put one in you

    Sweet! What color is it? By the way, let me add my .02 on the Pewter color. At first, I wanted a sunset orange color LS1, but I couldn't pass up the deal on the Pewter one. But after owning the car for awhile, the Pewter color has really grown on me. It ain't quite silver, and it definitely isn't brown, it is an odd color, but nice looking. Plus, it never looks dirty, all you have to do is clean the rims and voila, you got a clean car.

    Black rims look good on silver cars, maybe you could put some black SS wheels on it. But you can't go wrong with chrome either. Put some Foose wheels on there. Maybe a blue cold fire paint job, like I saw Overhaulin' put on that chics El Camino. That would be Sweet.


    Or, you could just put an LS7 in it!
