Why not? Its a SC LSS, which makes it worth more right there because they are rare. And it only has 79k on it. Try to find a '98 GTP with 79k on it and see what it costs, it will be more than 6k thats for sure. Also, kbb says the retail value is $8,620, and private party value in "good" condition is $6,210.

Its a beutiful car, but I should of been more specific. I would not pay 6k for a out of production vehicle. I would pay 6k for a GTP though, no doubt about that.

Why not? Its twice the car a GTP is... They don't make GTP'* like they did in '98. They're even built in a different country now.

I would guess the reserve is $5k-5.5k.

To each their own. However, if I were to have been offered a 97' GTP for $3000 with thee same miles and same condition as my LSS I still would have bought my LSS for $5200. Most people know what a GTP is and that its a quick car. I bet more people on this club know about the */C LSS than the whole state of California. Thats not the only reason i'd take the LSS. My neighbor had a GP GT and at 30K the door panels became loose and plastic peices started falling off. The LSS'* interior is classy in a Caddilac Seville kinda way. Wood trim accents the cabin and the Aurora seats are super comfortable. My car was abused and it still has all its interior peices.

I have seen some beat up LSS'* before, but I would get a Cadillac if I wanted to have an interior similiar to Caddy. You should like it for what it is, not what it reminds you of. Plus, it just depends on the car whether its in good condition or not. My 97 has seen a lot of the country to Arizona through the heartland and now the Northeast and nothing feel off, even the cupholders. That GP was probably just a lemon, and there going to be more beat up then other Pontiacs.
