I was just wondering the other day what the heck happened to that car....

Interesting though. It has a heck of a lot of bids with 2 days gone.

I honestly don't like that car. I do give credit to whoever wrapped the headliner and door peices though the color choice makes it look like crap.

Viper- The charger is how they are out of the box. Nothing changed on it at all. It is identical to how mine is.

I can't stand how SLOPPY that Type-J front is put on that car. It looks like it was put on in 5 minutes. Nice car though.

I miss that car, the interior sucks now compared to what it use to be. Back at the 02' bash that car was and has been one of my biggest inspirations.



Re: Laverty's car on ebay

Is this the same guy that bought and then re-sold Gary Oxley's car?

Wow... I've always mostly like that car but there's definitely a list of things that just aren't right about it.

Yellow calipers look ricer-fabulous.

Amber side markers don't fit with the car at all.

Ricer wiper mod. Seriously... WTF?? On a car like this???

And those goofy hood spoilers have got to go.

There seems to be way too many colours in the interior but that's probably partly just the way the carbon fibre is throwing off the light from the flash. I'll bet that looks much better in person. I kinda miss the tweed though. That was really a Laverty thing.

Crank windows??

Now all of this stuff can be easily changed so these aren't reasons not to buy the car. I'm really curious though as to what the reserve might be. Is there a big market for cars that are already too extensively modded to be a daily driver? What do people do with them? Just buy them and start putting them in more shows?

this is the reply to the stuff i asked the guy ;

i was Sponsored by GM Parts they supplied me with a brand new engine along with that supercharger which was the first they put on...and yes i could gurantee that , along with the 150+ trophies i have already own which over 90% is first place..due to ne not being where i am not with the car is the reason for the other 10%...r u interested in the car???



LOL


the s/c might be 1 of the first production units , but its not a proto type







Re: Laverty's car on ebay

ya this is the guy that got the car and went to a show telling everyone that he did the work to it.
anyway the c/f interior chris made the pieces himself. the doors, headliner and i cant remember what else. chris also put the hood things on himself to.
overall i like the car but i wouldnt buy it. i rather try to build my own show car. whats the fun in buying one thats already done.

Is he serious. GM never sponsored Chris, they used his car and shows but not sponsor. So in the short time he has had that car he has so many trophies. ALrighty then.

ALso the supercharger Chris had, is that the GM one. I know he was talking with Mantapart when they were producing their version of the supercharger. I kinda liked the car but some of those color were to much for me and that hood wing thing

That's just shameful!

It's funny too... because he'd probably do far better in trying to sell it if he just said "This car was built by Chris Laverty, an icon in the j-body world, after which I purchased it and went to a few shows..."

People respect Chris and know the car. This guy's just shooting himself in the foot with his lies.





Re: Laverty's car on ebay

Wow, I think everything on the car looks great except the yellow weave in the carbon fiber. But I guess to each his own. The rest of the car looks really good. I think 15k would be a good price. It has a lot of custom made stuff that you wont find on any other cars. Only thing that I don't like is the bumper not fitting good and the stock wheel. WTF is he thinking leaving a stock steering wheel on there. I hope he doesn't drive that on the street everyday. Anyways, whoever buys the car and gets a good deal on it will be enjoy it. And lets hope its a fellow org memeber so that he can continue showing off the car.

The guy lives in my area and has been trying to sell it for a while now. he originally wanted $25,000 if i remember correctly. Also, the things on the hood are TRD celica hood spoilers from Japan.

Never was a fan of that car nor Oxleys, despite them being icons, and I hate that @!#$ kid who bought them.

I'd so like to call his #'s listed on the site and tell him he's a big @!#$ douche, but it's not worth my minutes.





Re: Laverty's car on ebay

i just got another email from the guy , LOL

"If you're a serious bidder & not jerking a chain, bid on it or buy it & see what kind of attention it grabs at "any" car show. I've never walked away without a trophy since I've owned the car. It been published in numerous magazines so that alone should speak for itself. Any future emails please forward to; RPrice7483@aol.com. Thanks, Randell "


LOL


what a fumb duck


i never sent him a email after i sent the first 1


LOL

I saw that on ebay a couple of days ago...was gonna post it on here but figured someone already had. I was thinking that Chris gave him his trophies w/the car. I COULD be wrong...but I was thinking that either Gary Oxley or Chris, one, did that. There is NO WAY that this guy could've gotten that many trophies since he bought it from Chris.

I LOVED that car when I saw it in person several years ago (2002 or 2003, I think) and it was a big inspiration for me, also. This person is an idiot trying to say that GM sponsored HIM and everything..like he did ANY of the work.

I remember at Nopt when Phlatcav was fussing about this guy being a jerk, but I never got to see him; he was never around the car when I was. But he still won 1st place there, also. The car might deserve it, but he definitely doesn't.
