Looking for another bird.

96/97 preferred but as long as the paint/body/interior are good I'm game. Missed a 96 for a sweet price locally.

Basically going to swap my parts over into it. Got backed into and fubard the 96 hood and scraped the bumper cover so I'm gonna just take that money and roll it into a new bird.

Might be a finders fee involved too.

No thanks. I'm not a Nascar person even though I was born and raised in Nascar country.

And the signature is so true.

I am watching this tbird though:

Look at these

I didn't know what price range you were looking for, but here are some I found:



http://charlotte.craigslist.org/car/527373974.html

Tell this guy he can keep all the SC stuff and you will give him $1000-$1500:
http://atlanta.craigslist.org/car/527794765.html

I think I have seen this one here on the boards as well:
http://atlanta.craigslist.org/car/525493929.html

Depending on how far into GA some of these are I could take a Saturday and go look at some for you. Let me know.

I've scoured the region on craigslist/ebay etc. Unfortunately the first one sold before I got a response. Would have been good.

The 2nd one-not too keen on.

3rd one is possible but for that price a bit more from the collision money I can spend then money and have mine redone bodywork/paint/prep etc.

This is one I may go look at soon:

http://greensboro.craigslist.org/car/514063945.html

Gotta check on the VIN for it. Not a crazy fan of the color but it's not green fortunately.

The one in Greensboro does not look bad. All it needs is a good detail and I bet it would shine right up . Good luck, I will keep my eye out. My neighbor has actually recently gotten into the used car business, so he goes to the auction here in Anderson, or at least can. I will ask him to keep his eye out for a 96-97 bird and let me know. I bet they can be picked up there real cheap.

Yeah-Just carfaxed it. One owner, one rear end collision in 99, failed emissions in 04 (passed all other times). Gonna see what they say about the rear end or if they mention it.

my neighbor said that he would be happy to keep an eye out for a bird at the auction. he wanted to know what your interior and exterior color preferences are as we'll as what options you specifically want (sunroof, leather, etc.). also what is your desired price range? let me know these things and I will pass it along. he says that he has sen some birds in the past, so maybe he will find something for you.

I don't know if this one is still available, but it might be worth the extra money for the suspension/brake/wheel upgrades that it already has if you want them.

Suspension isn't worth it.

Brake/wheels possibly but I'd rather stay under vs. over 2k.

Found these two in VA:

http://norfolk.craigslist.org/car/546892663.html

http://richmond.craigslist.org/car/546327004.html

First one-big whoop on the tranny/chip.

2nd one has possibilities but I'd definitely be tossing those crappy ass rims.

There is a white southwest of ATL that isn't running b/c of a cracked intake/alternator. I'm waiting for pics of it. $700 and it turns out well-it might be worth the drive/tow or picking up the parts to drive it home.

They said no collisions so it's off the list.

This one might be worthwhile if for the price alone.

With major thanks to KevinM and Kevin (the neighbor) I have found the new bird (will be paying shortly):









This is funny:


Hopefully more pics show up. I could have sworn there were some more (header panel needs some TLC) but they didn't show up.

Yo Kevin-Mind taking some pics for me of the interior and of the engine bay?

Thanks again!!!!
