$2000! Seems ridiculous to me. But maybe Fieros are worth more to people. I doubt he'll go to $600, but at least you have a backup plan.

What is the history of the L67 that is in it? Miles...?

The L67 only has 68k on it, 110k on the body.

I told him $1000, take it or leave it, we will see what he says.

He wouldn't accept my offer of $1000, so the Fiero is out of the game. Looks like I will wait it out a few weeks for markviii'* '97 SLE.

Ok, I sent him a email offering $1500, that is the absolute highest I will go.

I figured the price of $1500, because it needs a 150.00 exhaust, 40-60 dollar custom dogbone mount, rear alignment, and the 30 dollar clutch slave rebuild kit, and new tires. Sounds good?

I'm just going to tell you what I've been trying to tell you for ages but you haven't taken my advice.

My advice is not to worry about getting a car right away. If you try, it'll end up being another money pit. WAIT and save your money for a nice SE/SSE/SSEi that does not NEED WORKING ON.

Seriously, take this advice.

Well, He accepted my offer, and the title is being sent out tomorrow. Most of my fixes are free and/or under $50, and the best part is that when the swap was done, there were TONS of new parts put on the car, so the engine is pretty much flawless. I believe markviii said he drove 200 miles to get a low mileage L67 for the car. The trans has low miles on it also. Also with the engine swap done, most of the common Fiero problems have been eliminated, and only common things to worry about is well..... nothing. Although, I am staying here to help people and get help for my L67 if I have problems.
