...well how many miles are on it? Is it pretty, like it just came off the showroom floor? are the tires NEW? how is the upholstery? does the interior smell like cigars, vomit, beer, fried chicken or pizza? how's the carpet? is there any play in the drivetrain indicating worn ball joints and tie rod ends. If it's got more than 100,000 should probably be looking at new control arm bushings and shocks~

got to get down there and smell the exhaust, both hot and cold, the shnooker can tell how rich and parts per million of various hydrocarbon groups...no kidding...used to be a smog guy.

Trans Ams ARE cool. Expect to pay MORE for insurance, just about bought a "FIRE" sale back in 1984, but when I came back the seats had been stolen.

i have an 84 trans am, bought it for 5,000, i would be happier with the price if everything worked....didnt find out till afterword....if everything works on it and it has driver quality paint then 3,000 is a bit low

yep. ten bucks ain't much when your thirsty oil barrons are controlling the price. "drivers lesions"? I used to get those on my butt when I drove cab. see, just how important it was to pass that guy (not at all), so slow it down kid, over 30 mph, bones can be cracked to pieces. Clearly the cops pullin' parts of people out of trees and putting them in plastic bags that you saw in your driver's ED class didn't get thru to you-

that car all stock? because my 84 TA has an aftermarket 350 in it and i get 22 mpg on the highway, not bad at all
