    b & m ripper shifter
    powdercoated calipers
    "subframe connectors" (ill check into that)
    halltech intake
    zo6 FRCs
    HUD
    telescopic steering
    z51 pkg
    sport seats
    glass roof
    sound/heat deadening material throughout entire car
    corvette museum pickup option
    dual climate control
    dual power seats
    new windshield
    new airbags WHOA SHIT!!!! ~TS|S
    new steering wheel (absolutely perfect condition)
    some new plastic trim pieces (i.e.-piece around wipers, under front bumper, radiator shrouds)

    I don't like them unless you get some documentation of why it needed the rebuild and the specs of what was done. Especially any thing with the frame. Also only if it's way under book value.

    I agree. I think we will all be looking out for your interest bud. My pref the best Vette is a Vette that has not been modded.

    i think this is a potential buy. The guy kept it for a year, and rebuilt it with the intention of keeping it forever. He owns a ws.6 and decided to sell the vette b/c the insurance is way high for a college dude...probably gonna get a carfax for this sucker

    Just make sure you know why it was wrecked in the first place and the extent of the original damage. Someone should have some pics of it before the repairs. Good choice with it being a manual too!

    Maybe I'm crazy, but that seems awful high for a salvage car. I got my 99 last year with new tires and wheels with 58k for $22500 with a clean title.
