Swap me the posi rear end for my stock open before you sell it, and Ill tell ya what I think!! :D :D :D

The Market for them is the difficult part. Its beautiful, built well, etc... but my biggest question is "IS there a Market for them?" and "Do people (Other than G-Body Enthusiasts) actually Buy them?"

If it was Mine, (Without the trailer) - I would slap $12k on it and see what bit.. Or consign it. Fastlanecars.com is a popular one. Gateway is another popular one. You take it to them, and say "I want $12k for it" and they slap $15k on it... and when it sells, they keep the $3k.. (in addition to charging you a monthly "Advertising Fee" or something like that... I'm really not positive how that all works).

You could always get it professionally appraised as well.. and have that documentation available to any prospective buyers.

At least $12k. I'd ask $15k and see if you get any nibbles. I don't think that's an unfair value based on the condition and the updated powertrain.

Did you get the car appraised?. That number can help with the selling price to keep it up where it belongs for a beautiful car like yours

I looked into appraisers when I first got my car. They wanted $350. Stated value for Insurance, Fair Market Value, etc...

Realistically, it would probably bring $8-10k to the right buyer. Noticing the surf board....do you happen to live near the coast? If so, you could market it as a beach cruiser and sell it to a hippie.....seems like the California type of buyer will pay a little more for a tastefully built car like this.

Surf board is just the fad now a days for wagons. Appraisals sometimes arent too accurate of what a car will sell for. Im thinking 12-15 k is a number I can live with. It is a totally soild car with no work necessary.

awesome wagon. Let me ask, just in case.

I have a 2009 Pontiac Solstice coupe turbo with a automatic transmission. There was a total of 1500 coupes build that year and about 10 in 2010. that is it. Of those, ONLY a few were red, turbos with automatics. It has some go fast parts, bigger intercooler, larger intake and exhaust piping, bigger compressor wheel. It has the GM approved calibration with updated MAP sensor. Horsepower is probably around 325 (not bad for a four cylinder) It also has chassis reinforcement as front, mid and read suspension crossmembers. It also has upgrade radio with navigation screen. It is a fun car that turn a lot of heads.

…………..but I have been looking for a wagon. Interested in working a deal?

Below is the only quick picture I could quickly find. Obviously .................LOL.........….it is the one on the right.
