Not the first time around for this one. One of the worst repro w/s I have seen.

Shame about the TT and glaring issues with the WS, it's a beautiful car though.

Vin falls after mine (about 12,000 after) then the motor (according to the protect-o-plate) is a few weeks before mine. The video is funny, the bald guy says he is also the buyer of the "40 new cars" they bring in every month, but then when he has the car on the lift he doesn't really point out anything important.

"yah its got new tires, I believe they are made of rubber, they are new ..ah let me read , um goodyears, trim rings look good, and center caps could be original?"
I thought the guy wasn't for real, but he stays true to character the whole way through.  :P

This is just the guy you want to spend a bunch of money with..lol, no chance he will steer you wrong... :o ;D

Agree Tim, it be pretty! But oh how careful one has to be in todays world of obtaining a classic car of some kind. As Charlie mentioned, thoughts on POP?

I can not give a thumbs up or thumbs down on the POP.  Would need to see that in person. Someone that I greatly respect felt the same way.

There are some pretty convincing reproductions out there.

I think the POP is a repro too. But those are really hard to tell.
Nice car, but trans, tag, WS are not original. Hey, the axle stamp is!

I think it is .overpriced even if it was all real. I would bet it is not a real RS.

Car was discussed here and on Yenko.  Looked at this car in person early last year when to owner was trying to sell on Ebay......really nice, clean car but I had too many concerns.  The owner told me most of the restoration work was done by Richard Maksym (Coast 2 Coast Camaro).
