Pretty rare with the 5sp would be a good project for the price.

I can literally smell it through my phone! Hope some brave soul saves it. I’ve seen worse.

Re: $500 91 firebird convertible 5sp

Yea i don't know why someone that had a car since new would just leave it outside for 10 yrs. I would have tried to cover it to keep it out of the elements. Its sad to see so many of these cars end up like this.that's why when i see them i post them.hopefully someone on here has the willingness to save them at least salvage the parts before they end up going to the shredder.

I love the “ran when parked” line. After 10 years sitting in the weather and advertised as a nesting ground you know there’s going to be issues. Look at the rust on the air cleaner.

Tavares is about 15-20 miles from me, but guess what? I too can smell it through the screen so I won't be checking it out any time soon.

Granted the t5 is in usable shape. I had to tow a 92 z28 that was stick and I could literally move the shifter around in circles. trans was junk. car had sat for years.
