hi i'm lookin at a 99 35th anniversary model conv that has 59,000 km's i think thats about 40,000 miles? its owned by an older guy who keeps it in his garage so the sun doesn't get on it, and has its original tires (although worn down pretty good). this car is a couple thousand more than the yellow one i almost got but i know theyre pretty rare and was wondering if it would be worth the extra cash? i definitely didn't get the feeling he was being sneaky or anything just that he'd like to see the car go to someone who thought of the car as a future collectors car liek he does. he said he'd taken the car to 200 km/h once and that was enough for him lol. i know the other one had the cool rims and stuff but i dunno this one feels like a better deal to me. i just thought i'd ask u'r opinions cuz it helped me get outta an almost bad mistake, i think, last time hehe thanks

59K km is about 37K miles. The 99 GT vert has a NADA listing of $14,225 give or take.

1) So, how much is "extra"? What is he asking for his GARAGE QUEEN? Betcha he has placed an awful lotta sentimental value on it, prolly more than street value.

2) Down-grade roughly $800-1,000 for a new set of tires. Six year old performance tires ain't worth squat doodly; especially if you're wanting to actually perform with them.

- yup, agree. Let's hear the price & translate to USD. Figure $175 USD per tire on the car. Repair receipts? Maintenance Records? Oil Change intervals & brand? Pictures? We're not saying NO, just want more info.

I have a 25 year old import that is not seen anywhere else in my county. Only one is known to exist in the neigboring county. I have to drive almost two hours to see more than two together. If you ask my wife, MY Garage Queen is worth over $10,000 (prox what I've spent total in the past 10 years). If you look in the trade pubs, it is worth $4-4,600. Ask anyone that stops to inquire when I set it out front with a 4-Sale sign .... and they expect me to pay them to drive it away.

Beauty and price are in the eye of the beholder. Don't expect "classics" to be worth more just because the seller says so.

hi sorry i had gone away lol. i got it for 17 thousand and it has 59,000 km's compared to 70? i can't remember for the yellow one that had been 16,000 taxes included but i woulda had to give my 91 240sx as a tradein and then gotten another winter car. the yellow one had rims and stuff but not sure how it was driven and something didn't feel right about it although it was one of the cheapest gt conv in the autotrader which covers the province. i'm not really holding on to any hopes that the 35th anniv will be worth more, i kinda realize that all cars depreciate (unfortunatly lol) cept for the older ones and then u hafta put so much work into them that u come out about even or in the hole hehe. i was just thinkin that cuz he babied it so much it would be a good car and wouldn't have been beaten like alot of the stangs around here. i think i may try selling it next spring, i just saw a killer 78 brinco, i dunno lol, thanks
