$150. came complete w/ blown motor, fully rusted out exhaust from convertor back, missing pass side door lock, crappy hood/hatch struts. No head liner, and, get this, NO remote hatch switch!!! New tires & radiator. full gauges, spoiler, no spare ( but the batt will go ther) working lights. Radio, but I added eq, & 2 amps ( 80 & 100, what power )

edit: other than a dent in the front fender which can be pushed out & no scratches on it, the body is straight

nothin'

1989 Firebird 2.8 auto. Got it for exactly nothing. Has a seized bottom end (any suggestions?), screwed up lock cylinders in the doors, and something wrong with the hatch clsoing electrics. Rust free, two minor dents, perfect interior, and typically peeling paint.

But a good price, I thought.

$20 for front brake pads, lifetime warranty
About $100 total for a front nose, fender, interior (including seat material & carpet)
$30 for the flex bumper repair kit
$5 for the roof mounted control console

About $20 for the spray cans to paint the nose & fender & bumpers (I need more, I used lots of the Body Shop Beige on the fender, but it look good)
$30 for the new aluminum radiator from Pick Your Part
$150 for the fuel pump parts & $100 to install & tow car to friend to fix.
$50 for timing chain & water pump

A correct oil pressure sending unit to install the functioning gauge package
Who's adding? I save money every time I drive that car, it's such a solid ride. Great power & gas milage, too.

This was also in the beginning of the summer/late spring when used car prices for sports cars are highest...

And yes, I agree with you. Right now I can get a car just as good for 1/4 the price...

Hell I'm looking at buying another one for 150 and it runs (granted it's a POS)... I would use whatever one ended up in worse condition as a parts car...

I'll keep you guys updated on that adventure next weekend though, thats when I get to go offer them money for it...

$4000 82k miles purchased in 95 as first car at 16 years old ,still driving it today , broke down when I pulled in the driveway .Culprit - bad altenator . Did not have to do anything else major for awhile atleast .Swaped in a new left tail light .

I REALLY want to find me a ragged out IROC for cheap and start restoring it , but no room to park it I don't think Mom and Dad will let me park it on the patio

But , the V6 I have now is a keeper forever !

Im about to order a kit to re-build the front suspension , prabably will start this summer . The front jiggles worse than some girls' a$$es walking around at school . The back just jiggles a little like jello , its not to bad , so Im holding off on that rebuild for now .

Engine: not stock 2.8

Traded my old Grand Prix that needed some work ($1000+) for it. My 'Brid had a new motor with 100 kilometers on it , new brakes, new clutch, and a few smaller things, with a nearly perfect body. The car's interior needs some help, but if all goes to plan I should have Mr. Mikes leather seats in it by summer.

I still see my old car around sometimes, the kid who got it has banged it all up in a couple places, sad sight, i'm just glad i saved the bird from that

BTW, I want to get a pic of my car in my sig, anyone know some good places to upload them that actually lets you link images?

$900, plus another $750 for a tune up, tranny service, new water pump, some other minor stuff too I don't remember exactly what. Two weeks later the tranny went. There is some other stuff wrong with it, and I'm not gonna put more money into it, unless I find someone who will help me swap a V8 into it (computers, not cars are my niche, and I'm not gonna pay a mechanic bookoo bucks to do the swap). So, I'm back searching for another third gen. Hopefully will have one by this summer. Until then I'm stuck driving my 4 banger Buick.

I paid 5200 for my 1992 bird mint condition and it had 80k. Itwas sold to me as a formula because it has the decals on the side. Then i come to find formulas are v8s but then i didnt kno much bout thirgens. But i stil love my car and i added a few mods. But i think it was worth the money for it. Ttops, aero kit, alloys and powr eveything. so ithik the price was good.

Try to figure this one out. While still in Navy paid about 9K for my 92 w/68K miles. Pretty good shape. Moved to illinois and paid $650 for a 305 TBI T Top that needs some work. Floor pan some rust holes(Will por 15 and forget it)... t top(R hand side..got a set off ebay for $100) window motors($50 Third gen parts), carpet, fuel pump($25 2 days to get in myself), and some other minor work. No rust(Besides interor) though... But it does run strong though...

My parents bought me my 92 firebird with aero package back in 96 for 9,200. It is red with black interior, pw, pl, air, gold honey comb factory wheels. It was owned by an old lady who only drove it in the summer. She sold it because she bought some horses. It only had 21,000 miles on it. Now I have 51,000 summer only driven miles on it. I love it and heres what I've put on it so far.
*Crane 2030 (roller rockers need to be adjusted, causing ticking noise, totally f'ing up the timing)
*Comp Cams 1.52 Roller Rockers
*Dynomax Exhaust
*Home made K&N cold air
*Jet Power Pulleys
*MSD 6A ignition w/ wires and blaster coil
*Hypertech Thermo Chip w/160 stat

** Just bought Hooker Super Comp F-body headers(yes, brand new!!!!)
**62 mm throttle body from 60degreeV6.com
**3.42 Richmond gears
**Dynomax high flow cat

***Want to buy, but need to get tax return and good grades in College, Nitrous Express import direct shot, port and polish the intake, and Suncoast Functional Ram Air Hood.

Well before the cam was installed with the chip, pulleys, intake, exhaust and ignition I got a [email protected] I thought that was pretty good. Then I got my cam installed incorrectly by some *** who wont back up his work. When I get it out in late May or early June I'm going to get it fixed. Then I'm going to get the rest of the mods put on. I figure with the mods I bought already and the fixed cam I should atleast run mid fifteens. With the ones I need to save up for with nitrous atleast in the high 14's.
My old time slip goes like this:
Reaction:.631
I1 2.427
I2
I3 10.441
MPH(13) 67.302
I4
E.T. 16.268
MPH 84.330
It's not to bad for just cheap bolt ons, it is one of the best e.t.'s I've seen on this V6 message board.

$8000 in 1991, with 16,000 miles on the odometer. My dad bought it to replace his totaled '82 2.8. (Some dumb*ss @ the body shop wanted to take a joy ride) He showed me pics and it looks like they got the GTA from him! (Maybe, maybe not) It currently has 95k-96k miles. It can still drive 30 miles to Downtown L.A. w/ the AC on and a passenger in the back. Major replacements are the coil, alternator (maybe 4 throughout its lifetime), water pump (took me 3 days to do that!), new paint (April 98), and my stereo. Other than that, all stock.

$2900 for mine, with 65,000 miles on it, back in January 1994. The body & interior & engine were great, compared to the V8 f-bodies available in my area at the time.

I have no idea (and don't want to know) how much I've bought for it since then. I don't regret any of it tho! (Okay, well maybe I regret the accidents...)

$500
for black 1986 Camaro SC hardtop, 2.8 V6, auto, manual windows and door locks, decent red interior. I bought it from some girl down in three bridges NJ. She had hit a deer with it so it needed new front fascia, drivers side fender, and hood. Windshield had a crack in it so that needed to be replaced. Had Sprint GT tires on the back and 85,000 miles. spent another $500 on new paint, parts, Iroc gfx, and black interior. Cant wait to do more

But my dad said he would sell it if i f'ed up with my grades, so i've been working my *** off, so hopefully i'll be able to keep my car till I get my license. I have a pioneer DEH-2300 cd player which I installed and my car already had aftermarket sony speakers in it and I also have a custom sub box. As soon as I'm sure that my car will not be sold, I'm gonna buy 2 10" RF HE2's powered by a RF 800.2 amp and wait till April when I can drive my baby.....

I bought my 88 RS off ebay for $2650, immaculate condition, 6 months and 2 accidents later I'm selling it because I wanted something with t-tops and a bit more power.

Yeah, but kinda pointless. If a message is that old, usually we just start a new one.

Nah.. we can revive this one.. keeps Ked, Tom, and Project from having to answer twice

$1000, needed paint and exhaust. Eventually coil died, alt died, trans died. Motor is on its way out due to boost vs bearings. 2 years of faithful service as daily driver, now project car. Faster than my V8.

$800 for my V8 'parts car'... needed TPS wires moved off valve cover where they were shorting out, and became V8 daily driver. Had brand new rubber and fairly recent $$$$ paint. Tossed it a 160* stat and 16-pass trans cooler to keep the 'trans died' part from happening again ... Eventually fuel pump died, starter died (while it was on ramps with the new starter waiting to go in), ICM died. 2 1/2 years of faithful service as daily driver, still going.

$900 including the tax. Found it on ebay and got the dealer to cancel the auction before this one guy from PA could get it. Pretty good shape. Unfortunely the body edges are surface rusted (awaiting work&paint), but the mechanicals were in great shape....after I undid some of the stupid stuff done by the jackass who owned the car last. Only two items that HAD to be repaired for daily driving were a tranny mount and the door lock cylinders. Oh and the passenger's side door handle. But that was it. Mostly just the body work to do. Stupid college kid drove it in the winter.

edit* Forgot about the water pump and radiator. Those were replaced after 3 months.

$3000 CAD in August 1998, which would have been $2000 USD at the time. It was way too much, I could have had it for less. It had 210,000km (130,500mi). A list of things that were wrong with it:

plugged CC
rust along bottom edge
missing some top-coat
various dents small and large
plugged front brake hoses (and therefore warped rotors)
clutch about to go
fuel pump about to go
shocks/struts shot
tires bald
shot rear hatch lift supports
original speakers
original stereo with only one side of speakers working
demolished seatbelt buckles

some good things:

"rebuilt engine"
great interior
doesn't appear to have been in an accident
