Congratulations speedyWS6 on your July COTM win!
Rather unexpected to garner a COTM at my first go!
Thanks to all those who have followed my antics on the site and
maybe had a vote for me.
As you probably have read before, this is my second WS6 Trans Am and i
should never have sold the first but we won't go there!
Many of you will have followed my hunt for a good car and a good few
of you told me about possible cars and Dave (Nutball) needs a mention here as
not only did he make phone calls for me, to provide credance to any seller
that i was indeed legit and not a Nigerian Prince just after their wealth,
he is still there accepting stuff from vendors to ship on to me. A huge
help for me so thanks Dave! Jeff is also always on the case with an amazing
wealth of knowlege with problems and there are others too and you know who you are!!
My 2002 WS6 came from a good Guy In St. Louis Missouri and the problems just went
on and on with banking issues rearing their heads and my bank not understanding Credit Unions.
Don't get me started on the huge expense and general nightmare that is involved
with shipping a car overseas!!! You guys have it so easy in comparison!!
John, the previous owner, used the car for sunny days and for church at the weekends and has
been extremely well looked after and a credit to him!
It came with bolt on sub frame connectors installed and engine wise it came
with the ubiquitous SLP lid, smooth bellows and the larger SLP MAF sensor. A tubular
strut brace was fitted but just recently i changed this to a custom made version with ends coated to
match the calipers, as the pics show. Various other stainless and acrylic doodads help dress up the engine bay.
The rims have been stripped and fully polished to a much better than factory shine, just need
to use a polymer sealant for upkeep. All the wheel wells have been detailed and the brake calipers done
in an orange enamel.
The interior has come in for a bit of a makeover with Alligator skin vinyl on the doors
and also the custom made armrest pieces in the back. It just breaks up the sea of black inside.
I guess you could say it is a "full bolt on" car and has:
Texas Speed 1 7/8" LT headers
Kooks ORY with Magnaflow High Flow Cats welded on
magnaflow I pipe and cat back muffler with Badlanz electric cut out
Custom made oval exhaust tips
SLP air lid
SLP smooth bellows
SLP MAF sensor
It has more than enough "go" for me right now and will carry on enjoying the car as it is and no doubt make a few more bits for her!!
Thanks again for the votes guys!!
