A very decent buy. You'd be hard pressed to buy a Fiero GT and swap in a 3800SC for that. The guy got a bit sloppy on the harness, the color scheme is weird and the fuel lines could be done neater, but its still a good price.

That is a great deal. Will need another new paint job and the speedo fixed, but for $4k that is not bad at all. And it has a "fancy schmancy" custom interior too...

I'm glad I am a long way from TX. If that car checked out on in person inspection I'd be in trouble with the Mrs.

$85.00 GPS will solve the speedometer problem fast and cheap ----- now the paint job...... if it wasn't striped it might be ok.

Honestly, that does look like a really good deal, even just for the completed drivetrain.

But, the non-working speedometer reminds me of this....

Trooper : “ Do you have any idea how fast you were going? ”

Del : “ Oddly enough, I was just talking to my friend about that. Our speedometer's melted, and as a result, it's very hard to say with any degree of accuracy exactly how fast we were going. ”

Trooper : “ Seventy-eight miles an hour. ”

Del : “ Whew! Seventy-eight, huh? Yeah, I could buy that. Sure. I guess. You know, uh, you'd know better 'n us. 'Specially since we've got a melted speedometer. ”

Trooper : “ Do you feel this vehicle is safe for highway travel? ”

Del : “ Yes. I do. I really do believe that. I…I…I know it's not pretty to look at but it'll get'cha where you wanna go. ”

Trooper : “ You got no outside mirror. ”

Del : “ No, we lost that. ”

Trooper : “ You have no functioning guages. ”

Del : “ No, not a one. However, the radio still works! ”
