10th Anniversary #001 - Price Reduced

Post by shpoone » Mon Feb 27, 2006 3:29 am

As much as it KILLS me to even consider this, Uncle Sam and the IRS have given me no choice but to part with my Firehawk. The details:

10th Anniversary Firehawk, Build #001.

Upgraded stereo using Monsoon head unit for stock appearance, but with Eclipse speakers all around, and 10" subwoofer driven by a JL Audio e4300 amplifier, plus Dynamat applied ($1200 total, all original speakers will be included with purchase). Hotchkis STB and welded BMR SFCs. Brand new (under 5,000 miles) Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval tires, 285/40R17 ($800). Just repainted, new factory 10th anniversary decals, and 3M clear bra applied ($4100 total). Also has brand new Textralia OZ700 clutch ($1200 with install).

This car participated in the GMHTP Supercar Shootout in New Jersey last August, and was featured in the magazine's December issue. The car currently has 42,526miles.

Sacrifice at $26,000. Serious inquiries only please.

Through 3/31 ONLY, price is reduced to $25,000. If car does not sell by 3/31, then it will not be sold at this time.

Dragan, you got to start driving that car more. Only 5K miles on it! My '02 has 13K on it. And 5K of that was in the very first week of ownership.

Yeah, and then 1/4 mile back on the return track too. That does add up.

Well, it is #001....but I tend to agree at this point. So, in the garage it goes for a while....something like 20 years. 8)

Just crossed over 60K on my Hawk - dead on 15K/year! Average

At least you're preserving the car for future intentions

Wish you good luck, From the stories I've heard Car #2 is the first 10th that was sold to the public. Car #1 was a pilot car not for sale to the public at first.

I would say ballpark low 20's high teens it would sell.

This is very tempting, although we are working on getting a garage build. I was wondering why did you get it repainted?

I bought the car from a private party in Miami, and even though he claims it was not his daily driver, it already had just under 26,000 on the odometer. :( There were already visible rock chips in the bumper, hood, and rocker panels, along with a small scrape on the right rear quarter panel. After owning her for about two years, I felt the car deserved to look new again. So I took her in to one of the best local paint shops (they do F-Bodies, Ferraris, Porsches, etc.), and had her redone. The shop was also recommended as my best local choice not to fawk the hood up when stripping and prepping it for repaint. In the process, I got the last right stripe hood decal in existence from SLP. Oh yeah, also got a new windshield put in while I was there too.

Obviously, the car has mileage. I can't help that...I like to drive it in the Colorado mountains and on road trips! :D

Is the car 6-spd? Is the car still for sale?

Yes, it's a 6-speed. I'm still debating whether or not to sell at this time, since my cash crunch has passed.
