Got to sell

:( A sad day indeed. The doctors say my wife won't be able to return to work which was a total shock to the family. Since she was half the household income we need to decrease expenses. I need some savvy advice on how to sell my Camaro. All the mods can be seen in my signature. It is an auto Lt1 with Rs and conv/conect package. Total for mods are $5700 not including my extra Vette wheels and Hoosier DRs that I have $600 into. I paid $27,800 for it last year and it now has 7,500 miles on it. I still have all the original parts for it. Should I put it back to stock and sell it and part out the mods or should I sell it modded. What do ya think I could get for it as stock and as modded? Damn this is a tough post to write. Any knowledge would be appreciated.

Always hard to hear news like that. You have a beautiful car and ask a fair price and you will get it sold. These cars are still interesting in the public eye especially one that has been taken care of.

Sorry to hear this.....You may have rights to compensation if your wife was injured at work or doing a work related activity....PM me details if you would I may be able to provide advice if nothing else.

Really sorry to hear this and hope your wife is Ok. I'm sure you'll have no trouble selling especially with those Boss wheels. They look great.

So sorry to here this ROD, good luck and well wishes to your wife and family.

I think you will be fine selling the car as long as you can bring it back to stock as much as possible. The wheels and shifter are better off staying on, since they enhance the look. I am not sure everyone will want the NOS kit. The exhaust is a selling point too, plus it will be insanely expensive to put the stock system back on.

Also I would check with Vince and see if the support for the tune is transferable to a new owner. Since you will be selling the car, the new owner will have questions and will need help from Vince.

Honestly, if I didn't live in an apartment, I would have taken the hoosiers and wheels off your hands in a sec.

She is going on SS disability but it is only going to be about 1/5th of what she was making.

Thanks all. I think putting it back to stock is the way to go. I do all my own work so no expense there, just a pita and disheartning to do. I will check with Vince on to see if the tune is tranferable.

Sorry to hear this as well. Definitely going back to stock is the way.

Removing all evidence of the nitrous would be a good start. That will frighten off most buyers.

I am about to be in the market for some long tube headers - I'm looking at the BBK but if you do go back to stock let me know what you want for yours.

Good luck with it all.

Sorry to here this.
Yes putting it back to stock is the best way to go..
You could sell the after market parts on this site.
It is not easy selling a car privetly unless you take a real bath.
Most people buy cars over say $15k form dealers, and app. 90% don't pay CASH for cars over $15K.
Let us know how you make out..........Good Luck !

Sorry to hear about your wife. Getting down to a single income can be rough. We made the adjustment 8 years ago and have been able to make it work for us.

As for putting your car back to stock...going back to stock for bolt-ons is one thing but with the tune you've wiped out the factory powertrain warranty. Don't let that come back to bite you in the a$$ if you do a private sale. You might be able to get away with selling the Camaro to a non-GM dealer (Carmax??) without disclosing the tune.

Rod, im soo sorry. I had to face a similar situatuion last fall with my car, but we worked a way to keep the car and everyone in check.
Family is first so making this decision is a good one, but hard none the less. Definitly going back to stock is the best way. Im not sure what else to say. You better stick around, im sure you will. Youll have another camaro soon enough!
Hope evrything goes well for you and your wife. Good times wikll come.
Pm me what you would like for the springs and the injen CAI. Or you could keep it for the day when the Camaro comes back

Sorry to hear that man, good luck with everything, but yes selling it back as stock is always the best bet, the tune can be reverted to stock as well, then selling off the mods will generate the most money, because most trade ins or people looking to buy these cars don't want modded cars. Id possibly be interested in buying some things if you wanna pm me and are willing to ship to canada. Best of luck!

I would put the stock tune back in so it wouldn't be an issue. The detection stuff is boulderdash. Thanks again to all. I will be sure to give you all first shot at some used mods.

sorry to hear about your wife, i hope she gets better soon. as for the car, its just a car, you can replace it in the future. i am not firmiliar with your wifes situation but family is the most important thing in life, possesions dont mean anything. stay positive.

as for your question, removeing the mods will net a better return on your investment. i am sure they parts will sell fast here on the forums, especially if you are willing to ship anywhere.
