Doesn't look to bad for age. Hard to tell without actually looking at it. If it has all the new stuff it says not a bad price for $750.

Well, I've bought worse looking for 750. If it seems to drive ok, you'll be pressed to get a better deal.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Cheap car after having all those parts replaced .Ask why they are selling it . Just be wary and give it a good road test before buying .
