looks like it was a really clean car before the accident. Tough to tell the extent of the damage from those pics. Not a lot info in the listing, but probably worth a low-ball offer. Throw $5K at 'em and see what they say

This is getting to high in price, but I would be VERY happy. He will do $11.900.

I'd take the FRC for 6 or 7 thousand over the gray one for $12. I've always preferred the look of the FRC/Z06 over the standard coupe. Get the red one, sell the extra engine compartment bling for part money and get a new front bumper and fixed headlights and you're ready to go.

no go. center armrest is cracked.

That's a pretty clean car for the money. You wouldn't have to deal with the salvage title which could come in handy.

Update. The red one is a roll over That sucks and I held back on that high mileage car. I'm still looking. What's nice is I get paid weekly, and it's early in the year. I want to find a car that isn't full of problems. Won't be too long.

Congrats, man!!!! You finally did it!!!
lsejlow started the thread and somehow you ended up buying a car, huh?

Now, bring that new toy to Gingerman for April 26 track day.

I will do my best for Gingerman.
