2012 SS GTR; Michigan (Roller car - Blown Motor); $44,000 - Flex-Fuel Bolt-On set...

29 July 2015 - 01:38 PM

Well guys, my GTR was for sale but it recently threw a rod out the bottom of the block. I think it had bad gas and went lean. Had driven the car to work 2 days in a row with no issues or signs of trouble. Filled up at a new to me e85 station and the motor went out about 25 miles later when I did a wot pull. Anyway, I decided to still offer the car for sale AS IS with the blown motor at the reduced price of $44,000.

Could be a great car to the right buyer that was looking to build a DBA car. If it doesn't sell I'll likely start a build myself after my wife and I close on our existing home in October and get into our new home.
