    Yeah, the wheels and tires would have to go. Too small for the car in my opinion. But I like the color combo!

    well ill go with you on that because of the fact that they are not those blingbling wheels. they look ok for aftermarket

    He's certainly wanting to try to justify his asking price, but he's a little off with the numbers. The W45s (GTs, and then Internationals starting in '88) were far from being more rare than the GS, of which just over a thousand were made. According to the Ciera Production Numbers thread on this forum, there were 4564 International coupes made in '88, with a new sticker price of 14995, weighing 2958lbs.

    A neat fact from that thread - my '92 Cutlass Cruiser SL wagon that I just bought is one of only 1932 made! I guess that means I should be able to ask quite a bit for it when I go to sell it, eh?

    That is a nice car. Personally, I would ditch the wheels....they look too "299.00 special at Sears" to me. That car is screaming for Cutlass Supreme 16'' star wheels. Or the stockers w/beefy white letter tires!!!!

    I love the ciera coupes, and i wish mine was a coupe =/ but if i were to sell mine to get a coupe, it would defeat the only reasoning i have for putting an l67 in mah car =] these cars just look striking to me in black, although i have been debating making it all white so i could call it white shadow (a reference to the white zombie song "black sunshine" which is about a 400hp mustang)

    $3000 is too much for that car, as nice as it is, you could buy a mint 89 mustang for that much
