Default Looking to buy G8 V6 Poll

Hi All,

Looking to get a G8-V6, my only issue is I need to sell my current ride. Before posting in the for sale forum do you think any G8 owner would be interested in a 2002 Trans Am + 3K cash, or am I just dreaming?

Yepp, mine is a little worse in the city but I can get 24-25 cruising. Not bad for all my mods, high stall, and gear ratio.
