No rust is right, fwiw, the body on that car was awesome when we had it. Here's a picture from then:

Hmmm... That is quite the high asking price! Definitely looks clean, but damn it needs those wheels GONE.

Wonder if he'd be interested in a trade for a 99 Viggen...

Looks like a good deal considering the mods and outstanding conditon. Unlike zach, I think the wheels are great. Probably one hell of a car although as c900 guys know, longevity is the huge question with the existing mod list.

Damnit! That would be a awesome ride! Wonder if he'd be interested in a 99 viggen =P Hell of a drive though and price is a little high but the mods are definitely not cheap.

Clean SPG's are out there, and if I'm going to spend $8k on one, it's going to be a 1-owner, creampuff car with L O W miles from where winter is 70*. Not a Vermont car (say what you want about clean bodies, rust etc. Vermont is HARD on cars), and not one that's been rode hard & put away wet.

I'd take Palmer's anyday over this.

just buy it zach
I'm not paying 8,000 for a New England SPG... Hell, I wouldn't pay 8k for ANY SPG. ;)

Wheels are personal preference... and those mods really aren't all that impressive. Definitely not enough to warrant that high of an asking price.

Buy my car, it's 1/3 the price.
I'd love to... But I am more interested in trading at this point in time as I don't have that kind of spare cash floating around. Believe me, if I did, I'd be all over your car.

Aero/Super Aero/Exposed Lug Super Aero wheels on SPG's look great... That's why people do it. I don't have anything against aftermarket wheels, I just don't like busy wheels with tons of thin spokes. Just a personal preference. I like simple and clean. I kind of think the wheels on that car look too much like hubcaps.

with those louvers - it needs a whale tail. The louvers seem to overpower the spoiler and make it look puny. lol Nice SPG - go get it Zach!
I would consider trading my Viggen for it, but I wouldn't pay anywhere near what he's asking for it. And it'd have to be close to pristine.

This. VT is about the worst place to buy an expensive car from lol. 90% of the roads are dirt, salty, and have pot holes the size of Rhode Island.

Zing, how about a good 99 9-3 and cash for the viggen? It even comes with viggen parts!
Tempting, but that LB paint keeps me attached just a little too much. The only things I would really consider trading for would be a pristine SPG (edwardian grey 88 (preferably) or tally red 90-91), or an MCY 91 SE Vert.
