Nope, don't recognize it... I think you can find a better deal on a ZX3 with that many miles though... Just my opinion.

Or perhaps he's actually the one who is trying to sell it by pretending to be an interested party.

From the looks of the ad, it seems to be a used car dealer. They usually over charge as it is.

The exhaust on that car looks like a mini version Roush Clone.

Sorry, no offense then. With 113,xxx miles, even given the "extras" that price seems high. The Blue Book on my SVT isn't much more than that (for private party it's a little over $5,000 and $7,000 from a dealer). I've seen non-modded ZX3s sell for less than $3,000 private party. I would think you could knock that price down lower than $4,500. But maybe I'm off base on that.

I'd agree with azdamay I saw it on CL as well cuz I always like to search who selling thier SVT's Once i saw it wasnt an SVT i was turned off... no offense to zx3 owners its still a focus, but the "extras" didnt seem very extra to me cuz you can get a zx3 way cheaper. and do the "extras" yourself and still probably save money.

Ok so I test drove it the other day and its a great car ! its really clean and drove great. i worked with the guy on the price and we agreed on $4200 + tax and license. Im talking to my bank right now about getting a car loan to see what it would cost.

Yes it is a used car dealer but its not at a dealer lot, the guy is a car broker so its a little different ( he doesent have a dealer lot or anything )( the guy was real nice and honest and willig to work with me ).

Yea there's some cheaper ZX3's on craigs list but the others if looked at in person are last week have lots of little problems and I felt they will give me problems soon. This one drove perfect and was super clean inside and out.
