    If anyone knows someone looking for a Gen2 GTS, I have to sell mine. :(

    My wife and I are buying a new house and I have decided to part with my dream car to make the purchase a little easier. Its a 2000 Steel Grey with Silver Stripes. Just under 19k on the odometer. No mechanical issues, only a few rock chips on the Fascia, but great paint other than that. I posted an Ad in classifieds, but its not showing up yet. I am going to take more pics of the car and post them as well.

    Asking 39k, but am open to offers.

    Sorry to hear you decided to sell, but it sounds as if making a prudent financial move. Great color combo...my daughter's favorite. GLWS!

    Nice car - I know you'll be sad to see it go, but congratulations to you both on your new house purchase as the offset to that! Hope it sells at or around your asking price (which seems like a good price so it should) and hope it finds a good home.

    SAM_1122.jpg Thanks to both of you. It will be very sad to see it go. I just drove it out of the garage to post additional pics on my classified ad and almost changed mind.. :)

    Keep the car. Do whatever you have to -have some other debt somewhere else or something, but keep the car. Unless your planning on a gen V,..... keep the car.

    Don't sell the car you will just be looking for another one in 6 months once you get settled in and bored. Did the same thing when we bought our new house.

    FYI there is a guy looking for a GTS who will give you $29K :rolaugh:

    Lol, I am sure there is no shortage of people willing to buy it for 29k. I think 39 is a REALLY great price for a car like this. Assuming it has no stories of course.

    Good luck with your sale, you will definitely be sorry.

    If I hadn't bought mine, I'd have bought yours. That's an awesome color combo.

    This is my favorite color combo and I'm on my second one just like it. If I hadn't bought the one I just did, we'd be talking. Lots of lowballers out there. If you get tempted with them shoot me a note.

    Good luck with your sale if you have to sell. The hardest part of selling a car is dealing with the low ballers and dreamers.

    I left a message yesterday Kevin. Sorry I am unable to buy your car at this moment but after talking with the wife she would like to pay off one last loan we have before I buy any car. You have a gorgeous car and if it is still around(which it won't be) around August time frame, we will talk because I think the only color combo I would buy again is SG/SS.

    Thanks for letting my brother take a look at the car. He liked it quite a bit. I'm still a little mechanically limited up here which is part of the reason why I sold mine. As a result I can't buy it. I had to use my last one as a daily driver so between the tires and specialty parts it was getting to be a little tough to keep it running.

    Your pictures did not do it justice. My brother took this one and one of the tires. He said it ran well. Clutch was in good shape. The car fax was good. No real problems. The Stop Techs and the adjustable suspension were certainly pluses. Good luck with your sale.
