Oh my.... Remove those "removable" John Deere" logos, get a new paint job, lose the nasty rims, change out the yellow carpet and green interior, and you might actually grab a bid at 15K.....if everything else was immaculate.

That is horrible. Sorry...but yellow carpet? and....nevermind.

Some people just get too obsessed with John Deere. I just don't get it, it's only a tractor!

Change the color scheme, remove the John Deere logo, put better looking/smaller wheels on it, and it wouldn't look bad. LOL

I actually like the Lambo Style doors.

What sort of art...the one where you draw something that's beautiful, and recognisable? Or the "abstract" art where they pick up buckets of paint and throw them on a wall, in this case - a car - and manage to create a puketastic form of fugly?

Wink

i don't think its even a IROC. for one thing, the gauge cluster is the same as the 82-88 base model cars. and the taillights on that car are also from a 82-88 base car. the IROC's had these lights:



after the 1989 model year ALL camaro base, RS, or IROC had them. I had a 88 coupe that had the same rear lights as the one in the ebay auction. I masked off the lenses and painted the center ridge satin black which made it look more like the early 3rd generation Z28 cars. and most IROC coupes were T tops, very few IROCs did not have them. I am not saying that this car is NOT an IROC, i am just thinking its a base or RS car with the IROC's front fascia. I cannot see the side rocker panels clear enough to tell if it says IROC or if it says RS with the chevy 'bowtie' next to it. I have had enough 3rd gen cars in my family to know the differences .

good eye my friend i forgot about the third light in the rear wing. but it is correct as only the 86 model year had the light on top of the rear hatch (some lower end firebirds that did not have the wing that wrapped around the sides of the hatch had them on top of the glass past 86 ). 87-90 cars had them in the rear wing. it was not till the 90-91 years that they were back on the glass but on the inside of the hatch. I was searching for other 1989 IROC's and surprise surprise, this car did NOT show up in that year hmm, even if it was stock its still a shady auction to list an older body style as a newer one .
