    Well the camaro didn't work out and then saw this car on cl. It's a little rougher than I had thought but shouldn't take a lot to fix . The main thing is the rear hatch is rotten so it needs to be replaced. But I drove it home and it runs and sons like a champ.

    Please say you talked him down quite a lot.
    Or maybe they just go cheap around here

    He came down to 2000. The main part I was worried about was the engine, but it runs damn good.

    I won't buy if they aren't willing to negotiate. I like to feel like I beat them out of something. Lol. My last 150 I got down to 3100 from 5250. Felt good

    Haha. I feel the same way but some people actually list their stuff for fair price. It's rare, but did happen.

    I'm not sure yet. I'd like to focus on the exterior and interior right now. How much would you sell it for?

    The cobra is 275 and the tubular would be 400 I have a 302 lower that would go with either one.. the tubular uppers go for more than 400 alone on ebay..

    Im probably just gonna use whichever doesnt sale lol
