well looks like i might be a traitor

preparing for the worst with my car, i checked out some dealerships today and ran across a abosolutely perfect 99 black on black trans am. clean as a new quarter, even the motor, not one blemish on the car, bone *** stock too, down to the exhaust. leather (not one crack or tear), cd, abs, 71k miles and they want 10,900 for it. three downsides: cheap looking alloy rims, no ram air hood, and its an auto. i vowed my next car would be a stick. during a test drive i was very impressed. as i went over typical potholes and bumps, i didnt notice any rattles at all like i do in my car, car showed no hesitation in any aspect............and was pretty peppy when i layed into it

i'll know for early week wether my car is totaled or not. i dont know if they total cars based on suggested retail price or trade in. either way i know it has to be 75% or greater of one of these amounts.

And this will just be another car you can get your butt handed to you in. I will have to talk to Cody and get him to tune Mike's car up to walk you.

dude, ws6 is just suspension upgrades mostly............oh wait, you get about 10hp extra from the intake and exhaust. i dont think the ram air hood is included, although it might be..........and i like that hood, one of the downfalls. i can put my own intake/exhaust on it, suspension if i find it necessary

Re: well looks like i might be a traitor

yeah i dunno what all it has..................since it just says "performance and handling package" under the badge, and since its the same motor with no serious factory mods (to my knowledge), that seems to be all it is.

b/c doesnt a camaro ss just come with a different hood, spoiler, intake, exhaust and rims....................and isnt a ws6 t/a a pontiac version of ss

Re: well looks like i might be a traitor

absolutely 100% NOT picking on v6 cars here BUT don't down (at least) a mustang GT before you try one.. IMO they have a completely different feel from the v6s-- they ride differently, sound differently (not just engine-wise) and act differently on the road

While the fbody cars are okay for what they are.. I would never be able to own one.. that sea of cheap plastic would drive me nuts (I thought the buick was bad til I drove one of those) and the dash as long as a mustangs hood pissed me off


just my $.02

i dunno, i always thought the WS6/SS were 6spd versions with better suspension (still ****ty though) and like 15hp more than their counterparts. My boss' 02 SS is neither very fast nor very good in the turns. lots of body roll and very sluggish on the get-go. Id like to assume its his driving, but if it means anything, all the other SS ive come into contact with werent any better. and thats before my Cobra days.

Re: well looks like i might be a traitor

If thats what you want then I say do it. 98+ F-Bodies are bad ***, but they do handle like **** and the steering sucks.(And people say Mustangs are bad) But they are fast.

Check out this guys Z28 with just a few simples boltons. He even has the stock 2.73's I think. They launch so much better/straighter that a Mustang, except for maybe the new ones.

just my $.02

eh, a gt has the same suspension/braking setup as my car. and my car can already hang with an auto gt, so i wouldnt really be upgrading much if i got into a gt.............b/c to make it much faster i'd have to start modding all over again. this way it'll take me a while to get used to the car (speed wise) and then throw some stuff on there.......just bolt ons though.

i didnt notice a "sea of plastic"............i guess the way it rode was enough to satisfy me. no rattles at all in this car unlike in mine where i get that rattle behind the dash. i prefer the way my car handles small bumps though, its softer than the t/a.

if i can find a 5-speed gt thats stock for around the same price with that many (or less) miles, i'll definately consider it. this car was just so incredibly clean though...........

And if it is anything like Z28's...when you go over 100, it gets scary. Front end starts feeling lighter and lighter like it is lifting off the ground...makes you feel like you have no control. At least, that is what my friends 96 z felt like when I wound it out for him...scary ****. Not like my car where it feels like the car gets closer and closer to the ground and you can feel all the little dimples in the road...very solid feeling.

yeah the rattles are all in how it was previously treated. My boss' SS does not rattle.

I would go for it if you like it and they total out the 6er :thumb2;
