Just sold my 1991 dodge stealth twin turbo today. Was my hotrod throughout the 90s and into early 2000s, was sad to see it go, but knew I wasn't going to get around to fixing it up so had to part with it to make room for the charger to park comfortably in the garage and not be cramped with both cars parked back there.

Didn't get very much for it, the car just never did start rising in value like normal muscle cars did, even at 24 years old the collectors never materialized and it was more of a parts car than a rebuildable garage/barn find. 100% there, mechanically new, just needed a clutch job and a cleanout of the fuel system due to old fuel, but no one wanted it when I advertised it for a couple years while it was running fine, then after the clutch got stuck after sitting for too long had to give it away for just above scrap value. Had spent 15k on a new drivetrain back in 2002, sold it for less than 2500 which was what I got for selling the mazda miata my daughter drove in high school.

Plan on keeping my challenger til I can't drive anymore, but may have to sell my last toy car the 69 charger if I feel I won't get any drive time in it, held on to it my entire life but never drove it, finally getting it fixed to drive now, thought I'd be around longer to have fun in my retirement, now I don't know.

As far as I know they haven't worked on it yet. Going to have to start nudging them to get on it now that I've sold the stealth that was in the garage I now have room to park it safely in the garage by itself. They originally told me it would be 10 days before they got to it, not sure why, guess they like quickie turnarounds and this one they'll have to figure it out the hard way.

Ok, that sounds about right. Those shops love the shake and bake jobs.
