    Fair price for that car is between 7 and 10K. Provided there are no rust/damage issues you don't see in the pics. I would be concerned about overheating too. Theres no fan shroud on that rad. Lack of shroud means "Gets hot in traffic" Looks like the hard part is done though. Good luck and let us know how you make out...

    Looks nice in the pics. Not sure why it says "302 Boss" on the back. It doesn't have a Boss in it.

    These are the pictures of the car that I had on my other computer. The date stamp on the pictures was 2006/04/27. @Stefan Is that is a Quebec "Dealer" plate?

    Ok, Thanks! I thought it looked like a "D", and our Dealer plates in New Brunswick all start with "D".

    X plates in Quebec can also be a loaner plate such as for a plate for a body shop loaner.
    But holy cow, I just saw a Quebec X plate in Alberta yesterday. Think the guy drove that loaner clear across the country? Why not? PS. Sorry for the highjack!

    I wonder if he went to Albert to pick up the car to resell in Quebec? Was it a high end car/truck?
