I very seriously doubt it the guy still have the 2000 Firebird, but I can check. If he still has it, it is garage kept, never driven in the winter, never driven in the rain unless the weather changed and it had drop top. It had 65k miles the last I looked. He wanted $6k for the car, which everyone told me was a ripoff, but given the condition it probably wasn't. I explained to him though, no matter how well kept the car was they just didn't retain their value.I'm afraid this project has come to a close. I knew this shell was completely roached, but I didn't think it was quite to this extent. After beating on the frame rails with a hammer a little bit....

That'll do it!
For now I think the plan is to keep all the good parts I made, and scrap the rest. Maybe I'll find a nice roller to swap this unit into, but I think this is the end for the "LAME V6".
As a matter of fact, the only way I would've bought the car would have been if I had a place to story it during the winter and rainy weather. Originally I was going to buy it and turbo charge it, but it was in such great shape I didn't want to ruin it.
I can also check around here in SE Michigan, if you'd like. I just got my exhaust fixed and rear window regulators on my 2000 Regal GS. coming home tonight. See how far I can take it with the Gen. V blower and other mods, then rebuilt 3800 goes in with a turbo.
