    Car Prices

    So I'm wanting, very very badly, to purchase a 98+ LS1 Camaro Z28 by christmas of this year.

    My question is, is it feasible to get said car for 6,500 or below? Would bumping it up to 7,000 work?(I'd hav eto sell my Ibanez )

    Camaro or Trans-am. With the 6 speed.

    Also would Selling my 2001 and 1980 Berlinetta Camaro get me to my goal? We'll see.

    Well it all depends on how much you shop around and what all your looking for. What kinda miles are you lookin for? mods or stock? If you just shop around will find one within your budget and if you decide too sell your other camaros you will have mod money.lol

    100,000 miles. I don't want too many if any over. But I could live with 120,000 probably..

    No leaks, and no mods.

    I'm not a fan of buying "modded" cars.

    you're going to be hard pressed to find an LS1 car for that price. Especially when really low mile/awesome condition cars are still going for 20k.


    You could afford an LT1 easy though.

    I think you could easly find one with 100,000 miles for that price. Personally I would look for one from 50,000-75,000 which will probably between 8-12k depending on condition.

    I got mine for $6,500 with 107,000 on the clock.


    Nothing wrong with it except trans mount (no big deal) and a squeaky door.


    I mean, it's not immaculate or anything, but for $6,500 I think it's a damn good deal.




    I was lucky though. The guy wanted $8k and needed the money for college. I said I got $6.5k CASH and he took it.


    Use little things like that to your advantage.
