    pm me if you want some info. only thing that is bad is the salvage title.
    and over 100k with not much info on the car.

    it's only a ta. a ws6 would be worth it for the hood alone..

    damn i decided not to get it becuase of the condition ac didnt work or heater needed new nose, paint, battery, door panel and a bunch of other stuff and was to high and had a salvaged title... i went to custom sounds and spent 1 grand on a badass system for a sale they had at custom sounds in burnett if anyone know's where its at. its a badass system though well worth over the torn apart 99 when i just got this for my 97 firebird

    The airbags will deploy on crashes exceeding 35 MPH, I would not purchase a salvaged vehicle, you are opening up a big can of worms.
