The car has a clear title and registration, the car was re-vinned by the state of GA many years ago due to being a theft recovery and has salvage history which causes a mileage conflict on CarFax as a result. The car was not damaged, smashed, or parted. I have zero doubt in my mind the listed mileage is correct and you won't either after seeing it. There are two previous owners on this board who I believe would agree with me as well.

Car is tuned well enough to run on the new set-up, but pig rich and not nearly as well as it could be. However, well enough to walk a bolt-on LS1 T/A from a slow roll by about 6 cars easily . Everything is there to do it, I just haven't. You can log with the wideband and LogWorks software and adjust fuel and timing through the MAF Translator and even more so on the chip through the ScanMaster. WideBand is completely installed minus the calibration switch, something that won't take more than 30 minutes or so..but I'm not sure if I'd want to mount the switch or not so I'll let the next owner decide.

I'm asking 17.5k. However, I understand the economy and car market and am open to offers...
I'm motivated to sell it and need the money, so don't hold back if you're interested.

I'd prefer not to trade. However, I would consider cash + trade for my car...but, like I said- I need money so the more cash the better.
I'm looking to downgrade as far as a weekend car goes and would prefer something valued at 5-7k or less + cash.

I prefer e-mail to PMs as my internet is limited at the moment and e-mail is much easier for me to check often on my phone.

Just wanted to clarify as I've had a question or two about the title. It is clear and has no issues and is NOT a salvage or rebuilt title.

This is MY old car! I bought this car in a package deal with a 87 GN about 5 years ago. I always wondered what happened to it. I spoke with the GA police dept before I bought this and spoke with the cop that actually recovered the car.

I always wish I kept this..it's the virtual twin to my current white limited..mine is the twin with a padded roof.

When I had the car, it had about 22k miles on it and know all of the owners since it was sold. 4 previous owners!!..I owned this car. Sold it to Mike (tta89) who then sold it to Grumpy, who then sold it to Chris Lyons.

Beautiful car!

Here's a picture of it in the background...Can see my 10k limited in the garage and this white one on the outside of the garage along with this GN in the front.

I bought both of the GN/T from a guy in upstate NY.

I'd be willing to share any of my info on this car.

As Nick says..this car's mileage is true. One look at it and you can see that for sure.

I bought it from Chris and knew Grumpy had it before him but didn't know about you or Mike. Thanks for the info! Since you owned it way back when and actually talked to the police about it maybe you can give some more insight to the situation that happened with it?


It really is a great car, just time for me to move on.

Absolutely...I bought it in a package deal and knew about the GA "re-vin"
I wasn't overly concerned about this when I bought it because for what I got both cars for, I could have parted this one out for even more...

Once I got it home I started to call around. The officer I spoke with said it was found in a warehouse. I was more concerned with its condition when found whether it was banged up or not. He said the only thing was that the VIN was removed, no crash damage or anything. Just like it was parked there. When I owned it I crawled all over and under it and could not find any evidence of a crash or any "funny business" going on.

The car has approx. 10k more miles on it now from when I owned it, but at that time, and as it appears now, the car was in great shape. Wish I still had this twin to my car still!

Do you have any of the original parts to go with the car like turbo, intercooler, etc.?

The only stock stuff I have left is the radiator, cam/lifters/push rods/valves. Everything else has been sold. Also, the car currently has some knock off atr style headers on it and I have the original manifolds and crossover pipe.
 
Was a super nice day out today so I took it out for some cruising. Put about 100 miles on it with everything from back roads to traffic to highway driving. Car did great and performed with no issues.

Still for sale or trade, taking offers.
