Hi gang. Ok, so I just dillydallied and let the one car get away that I need to complete my collection. Now I have 'staller's remorse' and am curious to see if I can find another before they're all gone.

I'm pretty particular on what I want: ALL original Silver\Grey SS, so that means '87 or '88. No burgundy interiors\stripes. (When I say all-original I can accept if radio has been changed or something, or battery or tires....but that's about it). I would really rather have a notchback, but would consider a stellar aero. The fewer owners and the lower the miles, the better. The more documentation the better.

Anyone have one to sell, or any leads? Any help appreciated. Like anyone, I want the best deal possible too, but am willing to pay reasonably for the right car.

I'm in WV, but am willing to travel to get the right one.

Thanks in advance for any help.

There is a silver SS on the Cars-On-Line site that looks very nice.

Thanks for the help and suggestions.....YES! THIS is exactly what I'm looking for, 'cept would prefer non-T-tops....and wondering about it's life prior to 2012, where it's History Check paperwork seems to begin. Haggling with him now. Assuming I can verify it's early life, his 'buy-it-now' is about what, 5 or so grand too high?

Yes I know, every one I've ever seen. As far as I know, this means always a burgundy interior too? All I've ever seen.

That's why I stipulated an '87 or '88.....only ones I know of with grey interior and grey stripes....

OK so, have had a couple long conversations with this guy, seems like a nice guy...but don't think I'll get him to price point I think is fair. He doesn't NEED to sell the car. But I WOULD like to have it. We'll see.

Just thought I'd follow up here about the silver\grey SS that had been for sale on Ebay.....pretty much was EXACTLY what i'd been looking for, but sad to say I let it get away from me too....guess I'm just underestimating what folks are willing to pay for these lately. It ended up going to Texas for 19K. Two in a matter of months, *poof*. Dang it. Well, so I'm still looking...any leads appreciated. Thanks for the help.
