Layne's estate asked me if I would sell his car for them and I of course said I would. We wanted to give you fine folks first option on purchasing the car being it would actually mean something more to you than a non-fan. The car is a 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trams Am with 26,000 miles on it. It is fully loaded with T-Tops and the Ram Air and WS6 package upgrades with dual leather electronic controlled bucket seats, stereo upgrade package with a trunk mounted 12-disc changer. 6-speed Transmission. There are many options on this car that Layne personally ordered from the factory... I will not get into a debate about price being it will be through private messages. Any questions about the car make here, please."
