$700...plus about $125 to get through inspection. 89,000 miles, hardly any rust, and runs like a dream since I yanked the cat. Quite a deal in my area since just about everything its age is a rust bucket in Maryland.

I paid $700 for mine from my mom's friend because it had a bad oil leak. Stupid small-town shop...put the oil filter on as TIGHT as it would go (I never did tell the lady that that was the only problem) Radio and tape deck worked, new front calipers, new brakes, BRAND NEW headliner installed three months prior, 116,000 miles.

Lets see...$8000 for a 1986 Camaro 2.8 in 1988, around $5000 for a '91 Firebird in 1996, 3.1, power everything and t-tops, and my current '90 Firebird 3.1 $4500 in 1999...t-tops, no power anything, about 130,000 miles right now. No mods at all except a Kenwood cd player and a K&N filter. All of the usual suspects have been replaced at least once, water pump twice.

Parents paid $1500 including tax and title for my `90 RS about a month or so ago. Needed work though.

Has new:
Distributor $100
Spark Plug Wires $??
Alternator $60
O2 Sensor $??
Exhaust $??
Rims $350 brand new in boxes, got off a friend

Plus a couple of other things:

Interior Neons(from previous car)
CD Player(from previous car)
Spoiler(from junk yard)
miscellaneous lights that were burnt out, replaced.

and thats about it. Not bad for my second car. 105,000 miles on it with no leaks.

still needs:
very minor body work
hood and hatch cylinders

Paid $2600 for a 1991 RS V6 with $153,000 miles. Body was straight, no rust(except a minor amount around the windshield), Interior like new; rebuilt engine and diff; no curb rash on the rims- very nice ride! Clay bar to the paint and it looks like new!

Unfortunately, the trans dropped out of it after 30 days, but 'Oh well'... all in all, I am as happy as a clam with this car.

Had a guy in a $94,000 Masarati compliment me on my ride, as well as another guy in an $80,000 Jaguar- could have bought around 30 of my cars for what they paid for each of their's! Laughed MAO! Smoked'em at the lights. too...!

Transmission: Automatic
I payed $1,200. The Owner originally wanted $1.500. Saw it on Auto Trader Online. At the time I thought I had gotten a great deal. The car ran good when I went to checked it out. The Muffler was loose and made noise while stopped. Interior was a mess and had a loose headliner. The Outside was dirty but the paint job was decent and threre were no dents or sracthes. Except for the hood. Paint was peeling. So after the test drive I say "I'll give you 12 hundred". Owner says OK. Then come the problems. The car had expired tags and no tittle but I drove it about 30 miles home. No pigs in sight. The following day I take it to work so I can stop at the DMV to take care of the paperwork. Less than a mile away from work a patrol car pulls up behind me from out of nowhere. I try to explain but he doesn't care. he tickects me. Get to DMV and find out I have to Drive back to Wittier Heights so the owner can sign some papers. With the ticket and all. To register the car it cost me about $900. A week after owning the car I decide to install a 1,000 Watt amp(used) Complete with 2 12's(used), New Alpine Deck, New Sony Xplod 6x9's. Setting me back about $600. The sytems lasted about a month before the alternator blows up while on my way to work. Alternator from autozone sets me back another $50. Three days after alternator. About a week after that it starts raining here in Los Angeles. While taking a Left, I almost loose control and remember the car needs new tires. The following day, I purchase new Radials from Discount tire center complete with three year alignment for a total of $600. And finally on my way to install a $700 alarm systems my transmission messes up. My 1990 Firebird has been sitting on new $600 tires for almost two months now while I try to find the time to take out the trans. and take it to get it rebuild
So basically V6 lasted for about 6 months and cost me about $5,000

Paid $510 through Ebay. I got lucky..
1 owner, minor body damage, no problems other than an altenator i had to replace. And I am talking about a 3.1 V6. Since I got it so cheap I felt spoiled, so I bought an 89 Formula for $800 which is a POS!
So u dont always get what you pay for.

i paid $300 for mine...

perfect body.. non saggy springs (aka 4x4 stance), only thing not stock in it is a aftermarket stereo

only thing wrong with it is a bad fuel pump.


guy wanted alot more for it (and it was worth more too), but hes in the navy and had to move asap.
the ad for it sat on the local message board right up until the 2days before he had to move.. i offered all i had (i just moved into a new apartment) so it was only $200.. he said no.... the next day, i got a call back and we worked out $300..

since it didnt run, 90% of the people who wanted it, couldnt come get it.... luckily, i have friends with trailers.


im just fixing it up (normal tuneup, wear items, ect...)... this fall, im going to give it to my little sister for when she goes back to school..

Lets put this int perspective......$2400 more in parts alone just this month.

Unlike most that build "hot rods" and spend thousands on a car that is a garage queen and is driven maybe 10 days a year, I spend money on my primary cars and drive the crap out of them. I enjoy my money spent, I enjoy it daily.

Yes I do have two garage queen also though,but liketto have unusual daily drivers that are unklike anything else on the road yet very very reliable and funtional.

Transmission: BROKEN, PREVIOUS OWNER REPLACED ORIG. WITH CAMARO....JUST BECAUSE IT FITS DOESN'T MEAN IT WORKS....DUHHH
I bought my 1986 firebird for 500 bucks.

front bumper cover has damage under the bra.
The gluides on the lift gate needed replacing
no console cover (or rpo codes)
the 2.8 motor needs rebuilding
tranny in it needs rebuilding and I have the original (2 transmisions)

I am putting a new cam & new headers on it and various 3.1 parts I'm pulling off one in the junk yard.

When all is siad and done I will have between 1,000 & 2,000 dollors in it, that's including the original cost of the car and I should have a car that has at least 75-100 thousand miles left on it, if I don't screw something up in the rebuild...lol.

I've havn't screwed one up before but you never know.
I will say this f-body & 2.8 is alot better to work on than my old grand am with the quad4 (piece of ____).

Later,
Ron the Tard

I paid 3k for mine back in september...51k miles, clean, no rust, minor dent on the hood, AR rims(a little rusty, but that just adds character) and new tires(indy 500s up front and kelly chargers in back), new brake booster and master cylinder, clean engine compartment and ran nice and smooth...ive had a few issues since but nothing overly major and done a few little things to help it out...if i could have found a v-8 available at the time in that price range and that condition i wouldve got it...but i wanted a third gen cuz i had one before but had to get rid of it and regretted it ever since. Once uve owned one of these cars its hard to go without one and feel satisfied with ur ride

I paid $400 bucks for my recently aquired '89 RS. It needed a new battery and radiator (donated by my '84 Z28). It has absolutely no options. I love the hardtop after years of leaky t-tops. And the 5 speed is awesome! (the first of my 6 3rdgens that doesn't have an auto tranny!) I miss the V8 power, but that will be coming soon enough...

Might as well use this as my "Hi I'm new thread" as well...

I bought my 87 firebird for 300 bucks from a kid in Utah, it didn't have a rear bumper (metal or cover) but i picked one up for around 100 bucks there as well. To say the least, I've spent a LOT of time under the hood...and around 400 making it run...the previous dipshi....er..owner, apperantly thought he was a hotshot mechanic..and well, he didn't really do much other then screw a lot of tuff up that i had to fix. Right now though, seems my MAF sensor is throwing out code 33, time to fix that...

Heh, I forgot to add, my car came with the extremely PIMP, cannot be topped, BUICK RIVIERA WHEELS. With tires that were too large for the car, maybe there's something the water up in Utah?

$1,000 and came with a dented fender and a "lovely" Maaco pant job lol

3 year later it still has Maacos quality work ......but has needed a cat back ("excuse me sir...your muffler is dragging" seems like a good enough reason eh? lol) ....but she still keeps going!

It has a meager silver paint job from maaco. Aswell as an aftermarket convertable top. Which was not of the highest quality but sure was a rare car.<br><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v298/Redsand5101/whitecar.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"><br> This is my 2nd 3rd gen. Same year and everything except it has 39k miles for only $4750! In amazing condition. It belonged to an old old lady who just drove it to the supermarket and such, she recently died and they family needed to sell it. However, all I'm planing to do is some 17in Ronal rims and I already have my sound system installed, I am very happy with it.

A shortblock is usually everything except tin, but this one is short the oil pump, screen, pan and gaskets/bolts needed.

$0 got it in 2004. Engine was shot and i didnt want to pay any money to rebuild (and i had no idea what happened to it or how it was driven either-just know it was dead) it and we had the 262 block so thats what ive done....i guess i dont count on parts then but ive only paid around $160 in parts-mainly exhaust, and then probably around another $125 or so for tags and title in the very near future

body has a few rust spots but those are minor, paint is in good condition just needed washed about 1500 times before a coat of wax went onto it, and a huge dent in the drivers side quarter panel

had no sound system at all and someone thought they were awesome at interior work and put purple synthetic velvet everywhere....looks like hell but im not gonna do anything with it

its also a t top car

i think im happy with it

Front seal is bad on the compressor, Im not sure if I should put the time into replacing it or just buy a whole new compressor.

Interior nearly perfect.

A few small dents from Hurricane Charley, within 1 week I had 3 offers for 3k+, what a steal

I paid $250 for my 87 2.8 Camaroand the guy thought it was an 86. First off the car somked and wouldn't start unless it was cool outside. So I replaced the computer and fixed the starting problem. Then I found out that the rocker arm was not on the push rod intake valve on the #4 cylinder. So I did a good job at taking it off of his hands because he had no clue that it was just minor issues. That was 3 months ago. Well as of today I have installed a new cam and will be looking to change out the exahust while adding a chip into the mix sometime or another. No body rust at all so I will keep it for a long time. Every v8 I looked at was all rusted out and couldn't match up to my 6. Now I love the car and with the little additions, I will not be looking for an 8 anymore.

Re: How much did you pay for your V-6?

I haven't seen this thread before I purchased my 89 RS last summer for $1200. She has 125k on her, has new paint they way I bought her, 2.8 5 speed, all power including hatch and release, C&C t-tops, hatch louvers, I installed the deluxe overhead console, I redid all the interior although it was clean, 84 TA seats (nice) not a speck of rust, car is clean and unmolested I even have the correct hub caps for the rims IMHO she is mint, I haven't driven her in about 3 months and the battery died I am waiting for a steering column in the mail and I can go cruising this summer
