i have recently aquired a 1988 Pontiac Firebird 305 V8 automatic T-top. i paid $900 for the car and it runs Very strong. but has quite a few suspension issues mostly front end and some major cosmetic issues (thankfully no structure damage). i bought it from a local small private car dealer, he originally had it marked at $1600 and later was dropped to $1200 after sitting for about 3 weeks, dropped one more time to $800 and i jumped on it after looking at what was wrong with it i realised i can swing $800 plus repairs and paint i will still be under the asking price for a mint factory car. the right side of the car is decent door and fender are mint but it has a pretty decent sized dent in the rear quarter and the left side of the car is pretty much totaled but like i said it is all pannel so the structure is still mint so i picked up a fender and door from a local salvage lot. paid $125 even for a door, fender, some skirting, lock cylinders, and a near mint set of Glass T-tops with the key to lock them. later next week i am going back with my next pay check to further strip the 91 firebird they have and yank a 350 Vortec HO motor out of a suburban which i will break down and build into a street strip 385 Stroker motor for the car.
if this don't get closed before hand i will post updates and restoration and motor build pics as i go.
htese were the pics i got of the good side the day i got it.
