5,500 as is if it looks like 19k it should sell even with the flaw

do you have any idea what or how to seal the tops in place? i know that once sealed i can never take them off again but i only ever took them off once so i don't really care about that. he guy who told me about "sealing" and not weatherstripping said it's much cheaper and that i could even do it myself! LOL--'m a little old lady and i'm not tackleing that job.thanks for the $$$ answer but i'd like to exhaust the sealant procedure first--can you help me ------------jon lee

the car is practically brand new, id put the money in weatherstripping it.

well--you type too fast--Is $1500.00 for weatherstripping a good price ---and am i right, only a glass installer can do it?keep it, yes i agree-when you hit 2nd and really command the road you know plus i think it's the sharpest car on the road, right behind my vette.

Judge Roy....I don't think you're ready for a Firebird T/A..so when you're about to sell the Mini Cooper, trade it in for THIS instead (see pic). It suits your personality better!!

I would pay to have the weather stripping replaced. Try to find someone who knows 4th Generation F-Bodies because the t-tops on them are notorious for leaking. A 96 Trans Am with only 19k miles on it in the condition you described is going to start increasing in value as a collector's car here in a few years so paying to fix the leak and keep the t-tops functional would be a wise investment.
