Re: Another $10K Craigslist ad that shouldn't

The way people justify pricing cars is frustrating. Hagerty probably says 13500 for a clean unmolested original Iroc. This looks like an RS with a terrible respray and the country boy sh*t kick treatment.

He can ask whatever he wants. Doesn't mean he'll get it. If he does... well good for him.

Wrong tail lights, wrong hood, wrong wheels, no black headlight buckets, fog lights, crooked exhaust tips, AND HORRIBLE repaint.....you can about tell the quality of the car by how much effort was put into masking off the door jam decals when they painted it

^^^^This. Beejay has done more damage to the performance car/hot rod market than any ten other entities combined.

Well it's a thirdgen Camaro so it's automatically an IROC, just like ALL of the Firebirds are Trans Ams or KITT...

Re: Another $10K Craigslist ad that shouldn't

is it a new thing to not clean the car one bit before putting it for sale for top dollar? or maybe this is just a troll

Re: Another $10K Craigslist ad that shouldn't

I like when they put "I can smell a scammer a mile away'' or ''Don't try to low ball me,I know what it's worth'' in their listing.
I know this listing does not have these statements but I have seen many of listings that do.

Re: Another $10K Craigslist ad that shouldn't

Oh come on, pull a $500 beater out of the shelter belt, blow on some Duplicolor, drop in some sickass Rockwood beats and a Kenford head unit... What else you gonna do to support your meth habit?

Re: Another $10K Craigslist ad that shouldn't

What I find troubling is the misrepresentation of the car. It is not an IROC period. This is deception that could cause someone to pay more for something it is not. There is laws against this, just not for private party sales I guess. The rest of the ad I just find to be amusing and have come to realize that some peeps truly think they have a beauty and there is no changing of opinions no matter what the picture holds!
