An admission. I owned (and loved) a 1988 IROC Camaro with a mildly breathed on TPI 350 at the tail end of high school and as a summer car while I was in college. Yes, it rattled like a Conestoga wagon and had all of the faults of a third generation Camaro but it was a bitchin’ car that handled pretty good, hauled enough ass to be fun, and even though it was 10 years old at the time, chicks dug it. Fact. I saw this CL ad pop up on my personal Facebook feed yesterday and immediately I did a double take. It looks like the whole top of the car was sheared off at first glance but then the other angles seem to indicate that the car rolled over or was pushed off a building onto its roof or something of that nature. The scary part is seeing how the t-topped roof held up to the impact which was basically like it was made of tin foil.
The downside is that the car is largely destroyed but the upside is that the thing only has 10,000 miles on it. The seller claims that the car runs and drives which immediately conjured images up of this guy driving around a smashed up car with his head poking through what used to be the roof and explaining to the police that everything was cool and they had nothing to worry about. Proving that sometimes it is simply hard to let go of stuff, the seller claims that the car was wrecked in 1992 and has sat in his garage since the wreck. We’re not sure what has driven him to sell it now but here it is.
So…is there $6,000 of value in this car somewhere? Can it be fixed by even the most expert of body guys? Is this a lost cause? What should the price be?
Thanks to Tommy K for the tip!
