Anyone know this car?

Hey guys my name is Zach, I'm a CCGTO member and have met a few of you I believe, including Ed. I am thinking about trading in the GTO on a G8 and took this car for a short drive tonight (hopefully this link works):

http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...Only=true&mmt=[PONT[G8[]][]]&modelCode1=G8&showcaseOwnerId=0&makeCode1=PONT&st artYear=1981&engineCodes=8CLDR&numRecords=100&sear chRadius=500&listingId=333846145&listingIndex=32&L og=0

Just wondering if any of you know the previous owner or if he is on the forum. Going back to have a better look tomorrow.

Zach

It says LS3 I think, but actually it appears to be just a GT. Which would be a 6.0 liter. None the less its a clean car...

Kinda don't make sense, 6.2 with OVER 500 HP. Hell there is no shots of the engine bay, and ONLY 22k.Sounds like the dealer is up to somthing fishy. Top of ad says 900 HP and TUNED TO GM SPECS,don't know many cars tuned to factory specs..

Yea, that price w/ that mileage for a GXP engine? I'm not sure how you can tell what engine is in it but it's either a misrepresentation or a great deal. To good to be true?

It definitely looks like its a gt with sport pack. Unless the motor was swapped,they're a 6.0. That one looks like mine only mine is stock. Seems like a good price as long as everything is legit . I paid a little over 20 for mine and mine had 50 k and again ,stock. Well good luck with the purchase. Just wonder if it was a typo.

Kinda agree on the to good to be true comment .Its not a crazy good deal and have seen gxp's on the forum where they'd only be asking 27k or so. Maybe they don't know what they got ?

It says "KOOKS 900 HP RACE CATS" with the rest being Kooks exhaust. So the cats can handle 900hp. But I don't know how it's tuned to GM specs.

If there is a aftermarket tune ,that gm warranty is void . I just inquired last week about tuning mine and gm manager said it would void the warranty. I saw in the ad. They mentioned the warranty ,that's why I thought I'd mention this.
