    \'79 Smokey and the bandit trans am super cheap near me

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=2481199351&category=6427

    I chatted over email with this guy before he listed it on ebay, he's selling it for $350 locally, down from $1000 a week ago (very impatient I guess). The car is more or less rotted out (he sent me pics, the rear window's rotted beyond my skill to repair), but for that motor, tranny, nose, and rear, I was tempted to buy it myself...

    Anybody interested? I can't store it for you, but if you're totally seriously interested, I might be able to cruise by there and check it out a little closer. He's a fair ways away from me, so it's not really a hop skip and a jump toget there, but this is a tempting deal...

    One of these days I hope to buy one. But I really don't want to have to do any body work. I have a cuda now that needs body work, and I vowed never again.

    I would like to build up the 400, factory was only rated at 195hp, and drop in a 6-speed tranny behind it. Then set up suspension and brakes to make it into a sweet road racer. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    In the long run, it's probably cheaper to just buy one from a non-salted state that doesn't need $15K in body work. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I restored one about 7 years ago and parts was a PITA to find back then. Restored and suped up the motor, a few weeks later, wrapped around a telephone pole /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Current bid is $51.00


    Take the engine out and take the hulk to the boneyard! They might give you $50 for it.

    Some people do restore worse. Pretty much gonna need a second car and basically transfer all you can to the second one ( vin plates cowl tag...........oh thats Gone in 60 Seconds , oops ) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
