Wish I'd seen that a year and a half ago. I was looking for a "newish" SS, and finally bought a 25k mile 96 for $14.5. This is a WAY better deal! Sadly, no one thinks a 20 y/o Chevy sedan is any good these days. No GPS, no back-up camera, no 4 wheel park assist, no titanium Bluetooth 4G LTE wi-fi OnStar iPad markup mirrors! People have no idea what even makes a car go, to say nothing of how to determine its value. Which is why these cars are gone, and have been replaced by rolling iPod coffee makers.

The market is saturated with low mile SS's. People bought em and parked them. Which is cool, but I woud feel bad about modding a car with 690 miles on it

Project 1994 9C1 Caprice with LT1 - THAT LOOKS LIKE BK HAS WIPED HIS @$$ WITH!

If you look at the history this car has been titled several times in Florida and then retitled in Utah with-in a couple days and it happened more then once. Something is very odd about the history of that vehicle.

I asked for confirmation from the seller and so far no response. Looks suspiciously like another SS (same) photo listed on eBay last fall. A couple examples with delivery mileage have come-and-gone with BIN's in the mid thirties, and recently, a 96 in blue with 4K miles $25K BIN. As they say, "if it's too good to be true...."

Danger Will Ribinson, I smell a rat.

In terms of modding a low mileage car, I had no such qualms. it took me about 5 minutes to rip the plastic crap off the intake. And not much longer until the air pump junk was torn out. Exhaust and gears soon followed, and I'm setting up for tri-y's, rockers and springs. The last piece will be the converter. Then I'm done modding.

No, really.

Just says "Bidding has ended". That does not mean that the car sold at that price, simply that was the highest bit at the time the auction was ended. He probably got a decent offer and ended it early.

The last bid was only 12 minutes before the auction ended so it ran its full course!
