G8 GT in CA good?

I am looking to pick up a modded G8 GT and came across this one. I was curious if anyone in the area has seen/heard about it? Or might be willing to check it out for me? If it checks out, I was considering flying down and driving it back home.

Price seems a little low for the mods that you can see... I wonder if that's a 2300 or a 1900 on it. With the MSD upgrades I'd wager the injectors aren't stock either.

Kinda makes ya wonder why they traded it in y'know?

It has a salvage title. I ran a carfax on it a couple weeks ago cause I was interested in it as well. I also thought it was pretty cheap for having a supercharger and low miles. It was originally in Hawaii and had 2 owners. 1st owner reported an accident and 2nd owner reported severe damage. Hope this helps.

These are the same guys that convert G8s to utes so who knows. As the poster above said, it has a salvage title. I ran the same carfax also.

That GTO they have looks attractive and at a great price. But it looks like it, too, has a salvaged title. If it's too good to be true...
