Who said anything about steel? Aluminum!

The trick though is the pins on the front/back... Need to drill holes for those.

No luck, he doesn't even have any 5 speed. He said he uses an ebay short shifter with a modified stock lever. I might try that.

For the wheels and tires? Cause the engine is most likely scrap, and the hard top is most likely damaged.

If it truly is an LS, it should have sport brakes and a 6-speed though.

I'll buy it from you for $1500. According to Richard's car, I'll have it completely disassembled and the chassis will be cut up and ready for recycling within 25 days.

6 speed+3.9 torsen? Engine I'd give a chance at survival and hardtop with body work.

1500 is what I'm shooting for.
