Default 01 Trans AM | Twin Turbo | Fikse Aros | Fuel Cell | Bult T56 | E85

Kicking around the idea of selling the car to invest and pay off some debt. Car doesn't get driven as much as it should. Sits in the garage most of the time, I rarely have time for it anymore with everything else going on in my life. If it doesn't sell no biggie.

I will list the important info on the car. I'm honest about everything. The only bad things I can think of are that the gas gauge is not working (easy change in hp tuners). Heat works, but A/C blows hot. Previous owner said it needs a new compressor, I never tried to fix it as I don't use it anyways. ABS light is on also. Dont know problem. ABS does work though. E-Brake doesn't work.

The car runs and drives great. It's a blast to drive. Turbos are loud as hell even at idle. Gets looks everywhere. I bought the car in August last year. I've driven it to work and back 40 minutes each way with no hiccups. Never heats up, even in stop & go traffic in 100+ degree weather.

The car has 85K miles on it - the turbo kit, built motor, etc. all have 9K miles...

Car has just been retuned on 15lbs on e85, haven't gotten any numbers on it yet. My guess on 15lbs is around 800whp. I can have it dyno'd if need be.

The black exterior is damn near flawless. Interior is perfect as well, all untouched.. Car still has heat, and A/C, back seats etc...

Asking $25K, clean title in hand.

Serious enquiries only. Please don't waste my time. No joy rides. No tire kickers.
