    all 98-02 are pretty much the same and equally good. Any model Z28, SS, T/A, formula, WS6 would be a fine choice. The 01-02 have a better intake manifold. But you probably wont be able to afford an 01-02. And thats an easy upgreade you can do later. The main thing to worry about on these cars is the rear end. It basically the only rear weak point.

    get a M6 ( 6 speed) ask if the clutch has been replaced, test drive it if the cluch is in great working order, there's a good chance it wasn't beat

    also never buy a car with major engine / performance modifications this gives a higher probablity of the car being tired/ beat on a lot
