The wheels would be the least of my worries on that car.

Very rough interior. Before I got down to the interior picture, the outside fooled me. The car is about 60 miles from me if some one wants to bid on this beauty.

Does the guy live on a dirt road? Int, motor and suspension looks pretty nasty. Lucky to get 16 for it.

Obviously that car has spent a lot of time outside in the heat.
Can't believe that he wouldn't even vacuum the rugs.....

Polished a-molds are not a violation of the ZR1 code of etiquette
That car could be a good deal for someone
Just needs some clean up

Parkinson's is probably keeping the owner from detailing the car
There are other cars out there that deserve to be flamed more than this one

Look closer - those are rims off of a C5 from 2001.

Yeah I completely agree the owner apparently is not well enough to take care of it. At 20K I think very few will take that restoration challange on. Goldcylon

Those wheels would look better than a-molds if they were the right offset.

Or atleast wider. Looks like a 9.5 on the back.

If I could find a set of those in the right size and offset, I'd put them on in a heart beat.

I had a set of C5 magnesium wheels on mine while I was getting the stock wheels refinished. I had to put a 1.5" adapter on there. They looked real good, but I was giving up 30mm in tire width.

And before I get flamed for having such a big spacer, I had the same set on my Camaro for over a year (about 15k miles), including a few rallys at the autocross. They held up well and did their job. Other than a little bit of oxidation, they still looked new.

Some of those spots in the interior look like they are actually on the camera lens, there is one that covers the seat bolster and the console. Exterior looks good, might be a good buy for a little less.

Good luck getting it out... I helped my windshield guy remove a C4 windshield a while back. We didn't care how it came out... it was still a wrestling match for sure. If you manage to salvage one consider yourself lucky. Lots of piano wire, rubber wedges, and a water spray bottle or 2 and you might get it. I wouldn't bet on it though. That bottom section might be 4 inches wide with adhesive and will test your cutting abilities for sure.

BTW... I won the "Delamination Award" a while back at the West Coast ZR-1 gathering.
If you install a regular C4 windshield in my Z you can have my winner of a windshield !

You have to look past cosmetics, I call it detail camo. It's a rather sad statement on the market that the car got zero bids. JMO
