Well guys I'm doing it
>visited the lady today
>inspected every inch of the car, minus some paint scratches it's literally all original
>runs great and has just been tuned
>carfax checks out legit athe 86k miles, basically 1 owner, never wrecked, passed emissions everytime, was in a warehouse for a little while out of the sun
>just filed for my 2500 loan so i can secure this car while I flip my current car and use that 4500 to pay off the loan and then some
I thought it was a good deal given the mileage and condition, interior was 100 percent original
only a matter of time before he gets drunk and wraps it around a telephone pole
itll probably explode into a red white and blue firework show
oh lord and I thought 2500 was lol worthy
I would rather not take a 2500 dollar hit to my savings account right now, this way I can pay it off once I flip my car, or if not Just pay it off in like 3 months. I put 1200 a month Into savings it's not a huge deal
I love my 89 trans am shes my baby. Had to put a bit of work into her but i grew really attached to it. Fun to drive and no major problems, only issue i have is t-top seals like a lot of people but fixed it easy enough. Only option i wish it had was the digital dash.
I actually paid 2500 for it, some guys just trolling. Like mentioned above though I did have the cash available but since I'm selling my other car anyways id rather just takeout a loan and pay 200 a month for it instead of burning through my savings in case of an emergency. Then once I sell my car I can pay off the entire loan in full, have the car off my hands, and still have savings
Am I the only one who thinks "hey, good for you"?
Why are you guys so upset. It's 2500$ - I'm not American, but it cannot possibly be that much harder to obtain this amount of dollars than it is obtaining the equivalent amount of my currency. And in any case, amounts like this are fucking miniscule. If he can pay it off nicely, why shouldn't he?
Anyways, good for you OP. Would sure love to see more pictures though.
Nigga thats not even me that's some guy trolling as Ricky from trailer park boys. I got the bird for 2500 cash
More pics inbound
So are the W123/4 Mercedes Benz, yet they're considered the pinnacle of automotive engineering whereas in reality they're horrible shitboxes outdone by REAL shitboxes made in Japan.
Well, you're right, the Mercedes is good at being a fucking terrible car all around with nothing going on for it except large expenses, whereas the Firebird is quite boring being reliable, simple and having a lot of potential for a fast car.
>op spent $2500 on a beat dirty auto Fireturd
>he took out a loan for this
I can get cleaner manual 305s for that
even 350s arent much more
hell theres a nicer looking 350 with a T5 for $3k on the local CL
No he didn't take out a loan to buy the fireturd
He took out a loan to pay off the loan on his old car.
He paid for this car with cash.
Oh and he's unemployed so he's not even going to be able to keep this thing fueled or maintained, and he's got a kid he's going to have to somehow pay for on top of keeping that piece of shit running.
Good for you OP theyre fun cars and yours isnt the best looking, but still 2,500 cash for a good working fireturd isnt all that bad.
Everyone bitching about this is forgetting OP is probably 18-20
>Everyone bitching about this is forgetting OP is probably 18-20
Which is exactly why it's a bad idea you knuckle dragger. We're trying to keep op from being impoverished white trash(though that's what he seems dead set on being).
I bought a '97 Lt1 T/A with no rust, mechanically good, needs a new suspension (drives fine but just old/beat) 8+ 32nd's on the tread on the tires, 116k miles. Radiator fan doesn't work at the moment, one of the previous owners broke everything you interact with in the interior, when I changed the oil and tranny fluid, they were both black and deep purple, respectively. Good oil pressure though, runs great. I paid 2500$, he paid 5k 2 years and 1500 miles ago. I feel like I got a steal. Pics incoming from my phone.
Don't worry, that is the old plate I drove home unregistered and uninsured on, it's all legal now. Of course that is a fictitious story, too, probably.
Spending 2,500 on a car isn't going to make him impoverish white trash for life. The whole loan thing is stupid, but really OPs likely a kid let him be dumb.
LT1 would have been way better than a 305 OP you might want to hold off if you can help it
Don't worry, it got a washin' after the snow cleared up, it's got a lot of love she needs.
I was told not to buy this car either, honestly I feel like I got a better deal, but if you like it OP, and you feel like you got a decent deal, and it's good to you, you'll love it anyways; enjoy it.
Why do you need a loan for $2500? Aren't you an adult? Do you have a job?
I also am thinking about getting a third gen trans am. This seems promising, although 140000+ miles is a lot.
