was browsing autotrader to see how low the cars were selling for now, no intention for anything so i did a state-wide search, and came across this...

http://autotrader.com/findacar/vdet...nced=n&start_year=1982&=&color=&car_year=1998

$4780 for a 1998 3000GT? With moonroof and the vicious VR4 chromies? I'm guessing either the car has had a really bad history, is messed up horribly in some way, or it's just a misprint. i would check myself but its in cali, and im in maryland... slight problem there.... So i thought i would let you guys take a look. If it's clean, it looks like a great car. Exactly what i had in mind, but distance sux.

**BTW**
I may be confusing this but werent 3000GTs 1995+ 6 speeds or was that just vr4's? Or am i confusing it with a completely different car lol.

Tustin Auto center is about 30-35 miles from my house. if i can grab a few hours when im not busy with finals, ill call it up and run down there.

Yeah, rediculous!!!!!!
i also asked him if there was anything wrong with it. he said nothing at all!!!! i sure hope that someone on this board picked it up, cause they got ONE HELL OF A DEAL!!!!!!

i wanted to ask him more about the car, like history etc, but he had to go.

CRAP MAN, WHY CAN I NOT FIND STUFF LIKE THAT!?!?!

Yeah, theres this story that was running around a few years ago about a guy who saw an ad for a 2 year old Vette in the paper for $50. he saw it, but thought it was a typo. 2 or 3 days after the paper (i think it was recycler) came out he decided to actually call just to see. it was a woman selling her X husbands vette. he told her to sell it, and give him half of whatever she got. basically, the guy talked her DOWN to $40, because it would be more dramatic for the woman to just hand her X a $20. fact was she didnt care at all about the car, or the money! she was, however upset when the paper had been out for a few days and no one had called. everyone thought it was a typo.

basically, this 98 3KGT, the NSXs, and the Vette are reminders to us all - CALL TO MAKE SURE ITS NOT A TYPO!!!!!

I bought my VR-4 from some lady for an obscene price :D :D :D :D Her husband, who was a rich ass doctor, passed away a couple of months ago and left her with his exotic car collection of over 50 cars! She showed me pictures of his garage and I almost peed my pants! We're talking new and classic ferraris and porches, NSX, Older Lambo, bunch of old and new Jags. She said she sold these cars for pretty cheap because she just needed to get rid of them to pay off something else her husband left with her....incredible credit debt!! All of the others cars had been sold already when I went to get my VR-4...if only I had called sooner...

The moral of my story is....you've just gotta keep looking on every damn website there is and you'll eventually come across one. I spent 20 hours a week looking for a VR-4 online...no joke! =)

Yeah, i think there were two. I checked the other ads and found that there was another one that was listed for 25,500 or something. i believe that one was an SL. it had a different pic, and dark tint.

unless, of coarse, whoever i talked to was full of shit.

thats fucking crazy. I would litterly shit all over myself if i got a 97+ sl 5-speed for $4700. That looks like a vr4.. if i found a 97+ vr4 for $4700 i'd probably have a perma grin on my face for a few months.

Hi

I think this is a mistake. I am from Costa Mesa just near Tustin. I search for 3000GT. I also saw that car I called them on Saturday and the guy said that autotrader database was messed up and that car is for $25000 or something like that. I don't think Mitsubishi dearl is so stupid to sell 98 Vr4 for 4700.
