Well having watched it sit last year with almost no use and no desire to drive it this year I am going to try the for sale route again. I want my garage back so it needs to go.






Basic Information:
57,xxx on the body/ 5,000 on the S60/ 1500ish on the FLT stage 5 4L65E.
Car made 635rwhp and 571rwtq @ 11.5psi. Without driver car weighs 3700lbs

Exterior Modifications:

· 17x7 front and 17x11 rear polished Billet Specialities street lites
· Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotors
. Sidemoldings removed

Interior Modifications:

· Auto Meter fuel pressure gauge
· Auto Meter boost gauge
· Auto Meter trans temp gauge
· Auto Meter water temp gauge
. AEM wide band gauge
. SLP line lock switch
. DMH electric cutout switch

Performance:

. Forged LQ9 408
. AFR 225 heads
. LS6 intake (custom painted NBM)
. custom Speed Inc. blower cam
. D1SC with twin intercoolers and polished intake box
. Stage 5 FLT 4l65E trans with vigilante 3600 triple disk stall and deep pan kit
. Dana S60 rear end with 3.73 gears
. Patriot headers
. Magnaflow catback with highflow cats
. DMH electric cutout
. 900HP Street/Race fuel system: Dual pumps, boost ref. regulator, billet fuel rails (blue)
. SLP line lock kit

Suspension/Chassis:

· BMR subframe connectors
. UMI lower control arms
. UMI panhard bar
. UMI LCA relocation brackets
. UMI torque arm

Electronics:

· MTX amp and hidden sub in hatch

Only current problems with the car are the fuel pressure gauge has stopped working, it's the gauge not the sending unit. There is also a small leak at the trans.
Asking $20,000 no trades cash only. All the work to the car with the exception of the new trans cooler was done by the staff at Speed Inc. and Larry can vouch for the car.

Several reasons, changed hobbies (paintball is REALLY fun), don't enjoy driving anything anymore to be honest, plus :( as someone else said I guess I got old. Don't get me wrong it was a blast for a while but at least here there aren't as many places to really enjoy it as I would like. I bought a plane jane Silverado and it works just fine for the new hobby. (wife says no mods to the truck)

Just quit driving it about 2 years ago. I didnt pursue selling it as hard as I should have cause I had a "buyer" but he has to sell his car first and I got tired of waiting.

I wish we were hiring but if your really looking I can keep you in mind and let teh boss know. But we have actually let several people in the company go (thankfully none in our division yet) so it could be awhile before we're looking.

To the top, having thoughts about taking it to CarMax and letting them buy it so make an offer.

They will only give you like $10k. Atleast find what they will give you and post it up for a week or so a bit above or at that price

X2, Do not sell a modified car to Carmax.

Is this on Racingjunk, Chitown racing, local Fbody forums, Autotrader, Ebay...?

Right now it's listed here, MFBA, Z28.com, and LS1tech. I thought about Ebay but that makes me nervous, with my luck the buyer takes delivery then breaks it and claims to paypal that he wants his cash back and Im S.O.L. I should try chitown though.

I buy and sell cars for a hobbie and anything over $4000 on craigslist is hard to sell, lots and lots of strokes. I never post cars foresale on a forum everyone almost wants the car for way under kbb. I have the best luck on free sites such as bookoo, eBay classified, cars.com free one, and of course auto trader is a guarantee sale. The problem is trying to finance your car is almost impossible with a bank for $20k what you need is a cash buyer looking for that special car. Good luck with your sale.

Biggest concern I have and the main reason I am considering CarMax even though I may not get as much money is I wont have to deal with people who have no intention of buying but want to try and get a test drive/ride. How do you all normally handle that kind of thing?

Scott, as much as I'd like to buy this thing, still broke as hell. Sorry dude.. haha. I will help support the other addiction though.

Seriously though, GLWS, I know its been hard trying to find a new home for it. Patience is a virtue... or so they say. :\

I usually will take them for a drive,,,,,, if they have $$$ to hold it, no less than 1/3 the total asking price then they can drive
