    I'm very eager to get back into the SHO game.

    I just started my search for a new SHO which will ultimately be my next daily driver.

    I have about $3000 set aside for this.

    Prerequisites:
    Must be a running, driving, decently maintained SHO with no major defects
    When I say tastefully modded I mean things like a rod shifter, subframe connectors, suspension upgrades, aluminum subframe bushings, H-brace, etc. Those kinds of things. If the motor is modded, good, if it's stock, that's okay too.

    Ideally, I want a 92-93 MTX because I like the chrome trim around the windows. But I also like the door handles being the same color as the paint from 94-95, and the later years were easier for the 96 brake upgrade as well. Preferably, under 150,000 miles.

    Logistics:
    I am located in Schenectady, NY 12305, but if I come across a good SHO I am willing to travel a substantial distance to bring it home. Must have a clean title, of course.

    Please respond to this thread of you have anything that might fit in with my needs here.
    And I will accept a stock SHO as well, if the condition is good and has all the required maintenance handled.

    There is a really nice modded SHO for sale in Washington. It belongs to the owner of SHOSource. Can be found on Craigslist.

    Yeah, but the other one doesn't really fit the description that he's looking for. The modded one is Ryans personal car I think.

    RevhardSHO: I have a green 1992 SHO. I'm the only owner. All maintenance has been done. She runs and drives fine. The interior has all been redone. Paint is still needed; the original has pealed off. Very minor mods have been done. Just under 200K miles. The car is very close to stock. I'm not real anxious to sell, but would consider it. I'm located in central Missouri.

    How much would you want to get for your SHO? I am interested.

    Sorry for the delayed response. I was out of town for a funeral last week.
    I am looking for $3000; I have asked for $3K every time someone expresses interest. I invested about$2000 in the interior not long ago so it's like new. If you don't take her, I'm looking to get paint within the next year, then I'll keep her. Let me know.

    A guy in OKC messaged me on Facebook. Super clean low mileage rear/black 92. Stock, with a trans issue, but nothing a little elbow grease can’t fix. You interested? I can send you his info.

    edit: oh ha, I see now how I wrote it makes it sound like I own it. No, but if I hadn’t just made the single biggest SHO purchase in my life I would have. It’s worth what he’s asking.
