Looking for BumbleBee

To make a long story short I'm looking for a BumbleBee. I know about the usual places (autotrader, classifieds here and morgue etc.) and I found a possible candidate (not a "real" BB, vinyl..). But I know there are better deals out there and I would like to ask here before I decide. E.g. some guy sold his perfect conditon BB for 50k to a wholesaler (I missed it, grr... )

It should be in good condition and no repairs required. Stock or at least stock parts available. Price < 50k.

I will have a viper mechanic look the car over, so if there are any issues please let me know before hand.

Thank you

I'd buy at Bernie.. if only I could afford it :-)

Means, I'm still searching.. I know, summer just started etc etc, but this also means that someone might buy something else and needs to get "rid" of it's BumbleB

I thought all the stripes on viper were vinyl? The factory ones just had a clear coat or something over them?


For 50k for what you are asking that is a tall order

Factory stripes are not vinyl, they are "real".

50k is not impossible.. patience is one of my strengths. I don't mind waiting until the summer is over...

I know eBay is not a reference, but I follow the "yellow" GTSs for a while and they go very seldom over 50k - they never meet reserve.. an they keep relisting over and over again.

I think the factory stripes are just vinyl with clear coat on top of them, but then again, I may be wrong.

Well I guess you learn something new everyday..............

As far as going for over 50k seldomly, I dunno if I agree with that. Good luck on finding your car though. I'll expect to hear from you in 3 years when maybe they'll depreciate that much

This is one of those on eBay.. The dealer will make a nice profit on this one, over 10k!

I'm still a bit "mad" at you that you sold it without even telling me :-(
Anyway, the quest goes on.

You'll get one around 50, but it will be this winter.
