@Tinkerah Actually, I feel like the article was fairly neutral in tone and was a serious solicitation of opinion. Not once was the word uttered "not worth it" in fact the only actual criticism is the lack of pictures. As a Pontiac enthusiast and owner, I'm let down that we don't have a bunch of cool pictures to sort through.
That’s not what was written. The short block is in addition to the other parts. The mention of the short block was that it is a true Ram Air V block. The rest of the parts are listed in the description and touched on in the article.
@hyperv6 Engine is actually still for sale. Went ahead and updated the hyperlink to make sure the item can still be seen. Owner has yet to post new pictures or to amend their salty comments about me.
Not surprised it did not sell but it will need to be someone who really has no plans to use it. NOS is where the premium is.
I have a Pontiac Fiero Billboard. It is still folded and unused. I only know of two left and the other is installed on a wall in a shop. I would like to install it but the value is in unused. I may sell it some day.
Now I have several Corvette billboards and since I have more than one I have one of these in my shop installed on the wall.
We see similar things with cars with 15 miles on them. They can sell for much more than they normally do. It just takes the right person to want it with the money and for that person to understand the value is in it never being driven.
This is not a one size fits all hobby and someday this guy may get someone willing to pay. If not he has his prized parts till a later day.
