I just skimmed the links real quick and they all seemed decent, but I didn't bother to read the descriptions. (The first one looks clean)

Before posting 10 different links, you have to make up your mind and decide if you want a 350/auto or 305/M5. Do not get a 305/auto you will outgrow it in a month.

If you are going to drag more I'd suggest a 350/auto, you have a better platform and 700r4's can be built tough. If the manual is more yout thing than a 305/M5 is the way to go, it'll be slow but fun. (Throw some Aluminum L98 heads on there and you'll $H!Tstomp on that 350). It's important to know what you want because there is a big difference between the two...and You'll have people talk a lot of crap because it's a 305 but atleast you have a manual, or people talk crap because it's an auto with the 350. You can't win with these cars, only the fox body can you do that.

Or you can get a very cheap 'bird, something with a v8 atleast and just have it to see if you will like it. I had my Camaro and T/A at the sametime and both are different. I enjoyed the T/A more from an exterior and interior point-of view. I liked the interior 10x more in my GTA than my Z28, it felt much more racey and oldschool imo. The Z28 felt like a it was trapped transitioning into the 90s or something.

But my biggest piece of advice is wait until you find the right one, I did some impulse buying and look where it took me, from 1 nice car to 2 mediocre cars, to zero. If I waited I would of had one badass ride but now I'm waiting to get my bike license and driving a Geo tracker, it was still good lessons learned about the Camaro and the T/A however.

EDIT: http://sandiego.craigslist.org/ssd/cto/1602761073.html

All original except spoiler and seats? DROOL!

EDITx2: Car isn't all original under the bay, still looks good. Ask why it needed repainted. White on tan is sexy though.

Without a doubt, this is the one I would go with:

I am the original owner of this black on black T-top WS6 LB9 (305 TPI) 5 speed with full power and working A/C. The radio does not work. Car has been GM maintained and I have all maintenance records, some spare trim parts, plus factory service manual with service bulletin manual too. Car was professionally lowered at Guldstrand Engineering in Feb 95 with 1LE front brake kit, braided steel brake lines, Bilstein shocks & struts, Jet Hot coated Edelbrock TES headers, Dynomax muffler, and Jet Engineering fan switch installed. The tires are Goodyear Eagle HPs with less than a thousand miles on them. This is a very nice clean car with 109,820 miles and was smogged in January.


This is worth the little extra price of admission. No doubt and hands down. This will do everything you want for autocross, and it's very clean and well taken care of. No stories and an honest owner - buy it! ****... I am impressed!

Well, then you're relegated to purchasing a POS.

Or sell you bike.
