While drag racing might be fun, it can be a pricey decision to take the hobby up. Racers find themselves dumping every penny they have into their weekend warrior just to shave a few tenths off their pass time at the strip, usually much to the dismay of their wives or girlfriends. But it would be hard for your better half to fault you for picking up this 9-second 1998 Camaro Z/28 dragster for sale on eBay right now, which is listed with an affordable price of $12,000.
According to LSXTV, who originally turned us onto this bargain, the Camaro has been listed no less than three separate times on eBay and has yet to sell. It’s common to come across owners who think their modifications have boosted the value of their car through the roof, however this race-ready dragster is very reasonably priced and has yet to sell, so what gives?
One reason why someone may be hesitant to buy a modified car over the internet is it’s hard to tell what the quality of the modifications are like. We’ve seen way too many cars for sale with sketchy-looking mods, but this Camaro looks professionally built. It’s 5.7 Liter LS1 has been hooked up with a Nitrous Express system and a few other modifications, while cross-drilled rotors help bring things to a stop. The underbody is also extremely clean and appears well-maintained in the myriad of photos provided by the seller.
If you’ve been wanting to run 9s in the quarter but haven’t had the money to do so, this Camaro is your answer. The latest auction ended with the car unsold, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it relisted. Check out the ad here for additional information and photos.
