if you are buying to flip them, then I think its kinda BS to say you owned them...after all they are just an investment and they were purchased then sold not "owned"

You aren't trying to find a Mint Austin Allegro Estate in the US.
The 35th Anniversary SS had some "factory" mods done over the regular SS. Regular SS made just under 300 flat and the anniversary edition was claimed to make 325 horsepower at the wheel but I believe actually made like 350 or something like that.

Hehehe, with 100 cars in 20-ish years, thats about 5 per year. Be careful, any more than 5 a year you need a dealers license.

i had to chime in!!!! dealers usually get offered half of what a car is worth by mooches all day long.... people arent even leasing at the moment because they cant get a 35k car for under 200 a month... hello... thats partially why the market is so fuc-ed up!!!!! u really think the bank or dealers are making money right now!!!! worst i have seen it i over 15 years...

Does this thing have super low miles, pretty much stored since new? I think alot of these cars were bought for an investment more than anything. Wasn't 2002 that last year for the Camaro?

If thats the case you probably won't get the dealer to move much off his price, if it's a 50-100K mile car I am sure you should be able to buy it for $15,000-$20,000.

Quick scan of ebay found at least a dozen '02 Z/28's, SS's and such. Nice one in Texas with 16 miles. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Cars-...1%7C240%3A1318



I had a LT-1 version for a little while, nice toy but wasn't anything I would want to drive everyday. Might want to check the cost of insurance before you buy something though.

Oh good I'm not the only one noticing this, I couldn't believe what things were going for! When someone says "you shouldn't pay that much in this economy" it doesnt apply to used cars...
