Wish this car were in my neighborhood so I could look it over. Not sure what it would be worth and there are a couple things I'd probably like to change. But it sure is cool. Does anyone here know of the car?

Nice car and was built by a board member a while back. He sold it then bought it back and then sold it again. If I remember right it ran high 10's or low 11's when he first built it. Name is TonyS451 I think.

Not sure what is in it now after moving across the country a couple of times. The price sure has gone up after a few years!!!

Yes, 30K seems a bit steep to me too.

Well, I really do like it. It is nicer than anything I could build myself if I had the expertise and equipment.

Anyone have an idea how the street manners would be regarding his engine build as described in the ad? Would mostly be street driven locally to shows and to blast around local roads.

May as well ask the experts...what do you think would be a fair price for it?

I built that car in early 2000's sold it and then bought it back a few years later. Tinkered with it some more, installed a new engine, and then traded it last summer. It was then traded again a couple months later... Its a cool car with a lot of good parts. Very clean street strip driver with old paint and mostly original interior. Not 30k cool!

I'm more of a sell it quick at a fair price kinda guy. The engine alone cost me over 12k, so I know it has a ton of good parts. Still, maybe 20k. If you're serious about pursuing the car, I can answer questions for you. I know it top to bottom.

UPDATE: Spoke to the current owner for a bit. Seemed like a nice guy and a Mopar fan.

Said his best offer so far was $22,500.

The auction ends tonight. I am not going to make a rash decision on short notice.

I don't think it sold, but I don't see it relisted yet either.

Color is not optimum, in fact it's dismal. If this were a 68-71 era muscle car that would be the first complaint at any price.

It is a very cool wagon. I'd like to own it myself and it would easily cost $30K to build one like that. Not very many clean wagons floating around anymore to use as starting points.

I spoke to the guy who built it. He said while the motor he built was expensive, he advised me not to go over 20k buying it. He'd be comfortable at 18k....20 if I "had" to have it. Take that for what it's worth.

No way you could build this car for under 25K, I know, I kept the receipts. Still, we all know that doesn't guarantee you the same amount in return. If the car had a nice paint job, it could easily fetch the 30 he wants. I traded that car for a 20k car and felt that was a fair exchange and honestly would have taken less in cash. That's just me though.

However, after spending some time looking online during my holiday downtime, I have determined there is nothing but junk out there!! (Aside from the high priced collector cars I don't look at or care about) . The driver market has a bunch of overpriced crap with a very, very small spattering of nice cars built with quality parts. I can see where he's coming from with the high price on the wagon...
