I'm thinking about putting my car back on the market when the weather gets nice. In the meantime, I've been working on a video to help show the car. My son used a slow-motion effect with his iphone. Take a look at my first draft and tell me what you think.
Some improvements planned for the next version:
- a little less repetition of the drive by and gear shifting
- clean the car better first (it had been under a cover and hadn't been washed in ages)
- more interesting background (the same parking lot gets old quick)
- I wish there were some way to take me out of the video. It seems strange to see myself when the car is what people want to see

If you like burning rubber and power shifts, this video isn't for you. There are plenty of those videos on youtube, so keep your expectations down. I want to keep the Eagle GTs in good shape.

I've watched this about a hundred times and I still like it. I love the rumble of the exhaust. Just me I guess...

Thanks for the feedback! I am not really trying to sell the car here - most folks on this site already have an SS and would only be interested if the price was low enough to warrant putting two montes in the garage.

I'll probably look at Hemmings classifieds. Craigslist is nice because it is free, but this isn't the type of car that usually sells on CL. I've seen some new sites on Facebook for selling cars, but I don't know if they are effective.

In the meantime, I'll hit a few local cruises and work on the video some more. My son was wary of my choice of music, but I felt the 80's song was appropriate.

Definitely put it for sale on this site. Members on here realize the need to pay the proper value for a MCSS in order to keep the value of their own where they belong.
If you don't get the offers you think it deserves, it is your right to simply say no thanks.
