I am selling my G3 SHO w/ 73K on the clock.

The car is in immaculate condition. I have completed any and all matainence myself with the exception of the Cam Weld & Tune Up.

New Brakes at 63K, Cam Weld and Full Tune Up at 60K (w/ 4 new rear ignition coils), TPS replaced at 57K, Oil changed every 3000 with Motorcraft 5w30, Flowmaster Exhaust w/o Resonator, 26MM Rear Swaybar w/ Polybushings, Anonda Motorsports SFCs and STB, and K & N Panel Filter. These are the biggest repairs or modifications I have done to the car.

For pictures just click on my link to my superford account.

I'm asking $8000 obo.

" teh Bob " will definitely vouch for the vehicle. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me.

Good luck, man. I tried forever to sell my '97 SHO...traded her in March of '03 and got a whopping $4400.


How are those Kumho's holding up for ya?

Well, she really looks perty...wish I could afford it, but with insurance in Jersey being so high, I think it would be out of my price range in the long run.

Good luck selling...i think the car will go rather quickly..

Thanks,

But as far as the insurance goes, The SHO costs the same as a regular taurus. I had both at one point in time and the insurance premium was the same.

That's it, I'm having Anonda come down and start laying down some bytch slaps.


Seriously though, this car is worth every penny, as I've said before. It's immaculate, and meticulously maintained.

Like I said in my post above, I just need a change of pace. If everything goes through, I'll be driving a beautiful 2000 Infiniti I30t today.

Not in New Jersey. I looked it up awhile back. Right now, I pay $2200 for full coverage on a 98' Sable w/Duratec. For me to get a 98' SHO, my insurance would be over $3000.

Sucks...

I can definitely vouch for this car. It is is immaculate condition, extremely well maintained, and very powerful. And that V8 note is to die for! The car is definitely worth every penny he's askin'!


Good luck with the Maxi... er, I30


Oh, and as a side note, notwithstanding New Jersey, insurance between SLO and SHO Taurii costs the same.

infinity is so
...lol get teh GTO


350 HP without the supercharger!
Infiniti's may be
, but I'll never have to worry about my tranny dying or have my car depreciate like crazy


As far as the GTO, It's nice, but I'm all set. Around where I live, cops love to bust balls. I rather drive something inconspicuous.

Now correct me if i am wrong, but your infinity has a 3.0L V6 engine, and ur tauri has the 3.4 V8, why would you want the infinity over the taurus? I mean ok so the infinity is a nice sedan with all the nice options, my mom has one too but she has the I35! So woudnt the infinity be a little slower?

Displacement doesn't always equal speed.

A 1971 Boss 302 Mustang could beat the pants off a 1971 Camaro with a 350.

A 1.3 liter RX-8 Rotary could probably beat the crap out of a 3.0 Duratec Taurus.

It all depends on what's in the engine, as well as the weight of the car.

Not to get COMPLETELY off subject....but by the same token, I've driven an I30 to Daytona for a week during spring break...with three six-foot 200lbs+ guys in it, it took over 1/2 mile to go from 85mph-95mph....tell me how fast would the 98 SHO done it? Made me wish for my 91 V6 LOL!


Good luck sellin the car by the way.... 8k is out of my budget for the wife's car....if I were lookin for me, it'd be ON
