Their website doesn't have a price. But based on previous sales of other cars I am estimating 30k. I don't think this really was much of a rare car anyway?
Those are some nasty floor mats.

Phewww... Glad it's a 5-spd. If it were an auto I'd have to go make sure mine is still cocooned in the garage. Nice car, not terribly valuable or rare. Doubt I could get anywhere close to 30K for mine and it's in damn close to the same condition.

I'm not a convertible fan and I think it's kind of cool - maybe it's the 5-speed making me overlook the lack of a hardtop and my least favorite interior color.

Re: How much do you think they will overprice this by?

These guys ask a ton of money for their cars. It's a nice car and I am going to guess they probably paid low to mid-teens for it. I think they are going to ask high 20's for it.

It's a great looking car, but no, not $30k worth.

Re: How much do you think they will overprice this by?

All their IROCs are $30+.. It would be interesting to see what price they put on an RS..

I’d say market value is $18-19k and they’ll put it up for $25,995.. Probably picked it up for $14-16k..

They have a beautiful black 5.7 that I’d consider but they’re asking $37k I believe.. that’s insanity..

I will say this color with a 5-speed was the RS everyone wanted back in the day.. The seats and interior are nice..

Is that the one with a bigass dent in the oil pan that skips over when walking underneath the car?

I never noticed that.. A dent in the pan isn’t a huge deal but it’s definitely not “brand spankin’ new!”

maybe that would take $12k off the price? Ha ha

Re: How much do you think they will overprice this by?

It's an RS so I figure it'll be priced at just under $30K, like $29,995.

They do pay top dollar if they have to, for a nice car though.
