Dang...somebody actually stored it huh? 40 miles is crazy. I'm sure Omni will comment when he gets back. He's at a ProSolo this weekend.

Too bad it isn't one of the Recaro cars... I love the factory Recaros.

It's the same place in South Dakota that also had a "new" 6 mile Daytona IROC R/T that I think someone actually bought for around $20k in the last 6 months or so. They've also had a couple other low mileage Shelby's over the years but always ask a premium.

By the way Focaljedi, the Fiberide wheels were used only on the Shelby CSX (Shadow) in 1989, were 15x6.5", 5x100mm lug wheels and are shall we say somewhat desirable for the Shelby's and still carry a pretty big premium for them.

As cool and as mint as it is, that is way to much for that car.

I work with a woman who has/had one of those. Hers ran like crap. I think it was neglect, not too sure. Wheels all scraped up, orange-peel respray, cigarette burns in the interior. She wanted like $15,000 for it, I told her she was nuts. haha

Way too much money for that car.
I do love them though. I would bet that this is the only 16V car that has never thrown a timing belt! And why does the ad say that it's RWD?

That is a bad as car and its fast. I have an 89 sundance 2.5L turbo 5-speed. I have been looking for the body kit off that car but I can't seem to find it. I bought my car for $500 and it is faster that my focus. I would really like an Omni GLHS now those are bad cars.

looks like mine. its not a matter of cost its how bad you want one and when you will have the oppurtunity(spl?) to buy on in such good condition. i bought mine for $7000 five years ago with 70,000 miles,recaros, minus the fiberide's. bought those two years later for $1200 four four mint wheels no tires. Anyways i love the car and don't know if i'll ever sell it.
mods so far have been custom intake and upper intercooler pipe, greddy type s blow off valve, underdrive pulley, plug wires, 2 1/2 cat back ss high flow exhaust, 2 1/2 high flow cat. plan on getting upgrade computer soon.
If you think its to much to pay then you haven't driven or riden in one.
