    i had a friend of mine call me the other day cause he new i was looking for 99 and to 04gt, and he told me he had a steel for me.:shrug: well it turned out to be 2000 5spd gt loaded with 72k moiles, i went and looked at it and started negotiating. the guy told me he replaced the computer, #8 coil pack, and the # fuel injector for a code that it kept throwing (po308). he told me five grand cash it was mine. i forked up the cash. (i didnt inquire as to wether or not the plugs had been changed) i trailerd it home, and stripped it down and did a full tune up, come to find out the car had factory plugs and the #8 plug well had what in it?, antifreeze. so i cleaned it up, put it back together and waala, dang thing runs like it brand new. so as a nice jesture i called him and told him i fixed it and what the problem was, and that he could have the car back for the same money he declined:rolleyes:. so thats my steel of the week.

    Hell yeah, that is an AWESOME deal.

    As far as the anti-freeze in the plug well... There is a 99.9% chance that is from the intake manifold giving out.

    Keep an eye on it and the coolant level. Coil packs aren't cheap to replace. Just be prepared to buy a new intake manifold and gaskets.

    Nice deal...so what are you going to do? Keep it and drive it, or try to flip it for a profit?

    I hope I can find a deal like that when I am ready to buy.

    What is the condition of the car? With only 72k on the car it can't be too bad.

    I wish that when I sold my GT that the guy would have offered to cancel the deal. That was a nice gesture and very honest, way to go.

    By the way...

    This thread is useless without pics!

    Nice steal. I wish I had your luck instead of having to pay $9,000 (not including tag and title). I would look for a private salesperson but they're a bit hard to find. I suppose something will come around within the next few months.

    :rolleyes:H to the NO, im gonna drive the balls off it. might be the one i put the power adder to. sorry for the miss spell, but was in a hurry. however it is the intake, looked at it a little more today and did a coolant pressure test and sure enough there it was. ive got a new intake coming should be here monday. and as far as condition, its in very good shape. seets are intact, and all power options still work:D

    p.s. i offered it back when i noticed the problem and knew how and what it would take to fix it.

    Wow thats a interesting story! Im watching Pay it Forward as Im writing this reply and what you did was a "Pay it Forward" move. lol Not many people would have called the seller back like you did. I think thats cool.
