Yup, there's a Liquid Red Firehawk I just looked at on ebay for roughly the same money.
Some guy in Alberta keeps on hanging a SBM Firehawk out there every so often.
There's one in Texas keeps on popping up every so often.
I'm assuming these guys bought these Firehawks years ago and are trying to cash them in as an investment.
GXP is still a better buy IMHO.

Saw on eBay a red firehawk here's some of the listing. Look at the title and tell me what it means besides the obvious explanation. But a lemon?

Thats so sad. Lemon law protects us buyers from buying severely defective cars. This car had major problems. Dealership had to buy it back from the customer.

I'd be interested to find out what the issues are with it.

Why in the world would you go through the effort and expense to swap an LS7 for a LS3 if you are going to put a PD blower on it? For WAY less money you could put forged rods and pistons in the LS3 and make pretty much the same power with a much stronger motor.

It probably kept melting the rear tires.

If I'm not mistaken the Red one that was lemon lawed had to do with suspension issues, possibly the wheel shimmy we all know and love. There was a thread on here about it.
