    hello all I was an active member of the site approx 12 years ago, got rid of my car back then, now I’m trying to get back into a second generation z28
    I have an opportunity to buy a a basically one owner car since 1982
    1981 4-speed z28 32k Miles original paint, (gold) black std interior 5-spoke wheels
    Original radio delete car

    No options

    Paint is very good condition as is decals
    Stock under hood exc headers
    Manifolds/smog in trunk
    Is 14k too much to pay?

    I was looking at some of these a few months ago and the Asking prices were in the $18,000-$24,000 range, which I thought was on the high end of the scale, but I would think an original 1981, mostly stock, $14,000 would be in my expected range of a fair value.

    Interior from the pic looks great !

    Hi thank you for the advice, I guess if you think about it what would it cost to paint a car, fix rust, chase around original parts etc. I feel much more comfortable thanks guys

    I posted a picture of the interior these pictures aren’t the greatest as the car is stuffed in a basement, the car has old school front and rear Tint outs, they’re coming off, The crosshairs for the parking lights are in the console, the original spare, front plate bracket, manuals and warranty papers as well as 2 square GM door jamb stickers are there too

    I was really apprehensive feeling as though I’m going against my better sense of judgement but I feel given the fact in the northeast here untouched cars are few and far between it’s a pretty rare find?

    That sounds like a good deal considering.
