You can buy a whole car for less than twice that. You can get the cheaper if you are willing to buy one with warts that need fixing.

But shouldn't you factor in 'Australia'?


Well,,, I'm not ZR1 expert, but it seems bit too expensive, even considering it's Australia.

freight to aust. is only $650 approx for a engine.
no one over here would know to much about these engines and would charge huge amounts of $$ to fix.
If this engine came out of a car that was already here then they are trying to make a huge amount of money from something not worth what they are asking as a lot of people over here tend to do.
We have a few ZR1 vettes in our club and these people have paid big money for cars that i see cheap on U.S. sites even incorporating the cost of bringing a car over $3500.
these people are paying $70-100K:WTF
