I usually see them go for 200-300, so 250 is not horrible, but its not an incredible deal.

This is the closest black one I've seen in a year... Hopefully the paints good or I might just have to pass then:/

If the paint is good, I would personally go for it. Just looking at ebay, there are a lot in the 300-400 range, but I would not pay that much. There are deals like this: 93-02 Trans Am WS6 Rear Trunk Hatch High Rise Wing Decklid Glass 94 95 96 97 98 | eBay (I realize this is not black, but it does say in the add that they have more colors, and it depends on where you live in proximity to this, but I am just using this as an example)

Of course it depends on where you are and what the F-body part trade is like in your area.

The problem I had with eBay was shipping..

I understand, I was more using it as an example. The whole point of my previous post was that 250 with good paint I would pay.

I'll definitely have to go! My uncle is working weekends there now as a wrecker/mechanic/fire crew and is taking me out there this weekend in hopes of meeting the owners and possibly getting a few part time jobs! And the 27th is the a&m consolidated high-schools Car show! There's a small fee to enter but you should talk to the bvss about getting some guys out there to enter. As part of the Ag mech team we will be building small projects to raffle off, all proceeds go for senior scholarships, me and my friend might enter our cars as well (friend has 3rd gen)

Some of the guys go to that. I actually think there is a thread posted locally.
Hopefully I get this rack and pinion, hub assemblies, tires and alignment done by then.

Don't you just love the look of a TA hatch once you finally have it on? I always used to think my car would looks so much more badass from certain angles with the hatch, and I still love the piss out of it.
