All Reasonable Offers Considered

All of my cars are numbers matching with original drive trains. Including this one.

Mileage as of this date is original 36,605 Kilometers ( only 22,700 miles )

Purchased from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. The original owner of the car was a Ms. Wendy Knudsen.

The car is amazing condition and although you can’t say it is “like new” condition, it is pretty darn close just like the other pristine Trans Ams.

Comes with clean Ohio title.

There is a small story to this car.

The car was bought via the internet from an OPP officer ( policeman ) in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. Mr. Carmine Cerasuolo.

I was told that there were some “very minor” touch ups of the silver paint that needed to be done to the top of the 2 front fenders. I did not see the car first hand and purchased the car based on pictures supplied. Me bad. Me stupid.

The first 7 pictures on http://www.birdbunker.com/car-inventory/1980-301-auto-silver-blue/ were what I was presented by the seller.

Do you see anything wrong with the paint? No. I didn’t think so either. So I went ahead with the purchase.

All of the pictures of both before and after purchase are located here for you to look at. Nothing is hidden.

What showed up on the truck from Sault Ste Marie was different than the pics. Too bad right? There was paint faded completely off the top of the 2 front fenders. Down to the black primer ecoat. Looked ugly. It had to be fixed.

Yes. I was quite pissed off and the seller would not take my calls.

Well, the 2 front fenders were repainted in silver to the best that they could. How close is the match? Well… that depends on what angle you look at the car. From most angles in natural light it is impossible to tell that the car was painted. Perfect 100% match.

From some other angles, it does stand out. This is true if standing in natural light. It is in natural light that the car looks its very best.

You can take this car, and compare it to the other real low milers here and this car is every bit as clean and original as the others. You live and learn.

On the other hand, there are some amazing guys out there that could maybe do something and get a match. I don’t know.

In my opinion. I was scammed but that is the risk of buying cars based on pictures only. That is why I encourage serious buyers to come and have a look at cars or at least send an appraiser or someone else they trust. When you buy something sight unseen, you are always running a risk.

This car originally came with Rally II’s but was changed to the Silver Snowflakes for bling appeal. The argent Snowflakes I put on really increase the bling appeal of this car.

This car is pretty close a new 1980 Trans Am. The interior and glass of this car is impeccable as you can imagine.

The plastic on the seat backs needs to be painted though. I have no idea what causes this. It certainly is not sunlight because the car hardly ever is outside. Maybe 3 hours per year for the last 15 years.

The rest of the exterior paint is very good. Little issue on the back spoiler. Hey, the car is 36 years old right?

Look at it this way. For $18,000, this is a really nice “used car” that even if you just wanted to use it as a daily driver and stand out is a good deal. Car starts, runs and drive like a 22 K mile car should. Nice and tight.
