    2001 Trans Am WS6 (The Intimidator)

    I just got back from a weekend trip to Minneapolis, Minnesota. I've got a beautiful 2001 arctic white ws6 a4 with 51000 miles, I've only had the car for 6 weeks and I love it! I've previously had a 89 mustang gt, 87 buick grand national, 99 gtp grand prix. I was driving along the north side of the cities and I came up on a previous gen mustang gt 2002-03, I noticed driving up in the lane beside him it had different exhaust under the car, huge rear tires, stang.com stickers on the the rear side window, as i came up beside him i waved, he had the Tom Cruise (top gun) sunglasses on, my girlfriend was with me and she could cut the testosterone in the air with a knife, we were probably running 75mph, next thing I know the guy stomps on it and took off, I thought ok, it was about 60 degrees out and man was my car running hard. I followed him for a mile thinking i'm ready for my first kill, unfortunately he exited off the freeway. Later in the afternoon I was heading back home towards Iowa, this time on the south side of the cities, I came up on a late model vette, it had paper plates, so i know the guy just got it, It was a Z06 so I knew to leave it alone and just give the guy a nice waive, about 15 miles further down the road I noticed a pretty black GTO coming up on my left, he got up beside me and looked over, I waived and so did he, next thing I know he starts hammering up on the throttle and slowing down, I noticed it was a 6 liter, their was way to much traffic to screw around, plus I had to exit within a couple miles, it would have been fun, probably a good thing I exited. I have come to a conclusion that this car has such a bad ass look from the front or rear that it immediately intimidates all these late model sports cars that are much newer. I bought the car because I've always loved the ram air hood and body style, all this attention is such a bonus to owning a WS6, plus the girlfriend doesn't mind me occasionally smoking the tires or feeling the g-force on a off ramp! I was wondering if anybody else has had similar problems with there car? My time is limited, winter is coming.

    Oh yes, it take real control to keep your foot out of it most days for me. Everyone wants to try you. Just remember, the track is the best place to prove it's badge of power. It will take down most comers so save your gas for the track. With power come great responsibility..... Where have I heard that?

    Be Safe, Be Kewl is all I go by .....

    You have only had it for 6 weeks... just wait it gets to be expected. Almost everyday, everywhere you go someone wants to run you. Everyone from the3/4 ton chevy trucks, turbo diesel dual rams, 5.0s, chargers, v6 mustangs and almost every ricer that comes along will want some. I love how my car looks, agressive or intimadating however you want to say it, what it really is is inviting... eveyone wants to run you so they can say that they beat this kick ass looking car, is what it comes down to. Some are out just to have fun and race and others are out to prove there name and ability, just watch out for who is around and where you are when you do it, Dont waste it on eveyone who comes along on the road, hand it to them at the track. There it is safer and legal.

    I don't waste my time when someone comes up to me an wants to play when I know I will kick their
    I will however, play with other T/A's, Firebirds, Camaros, Corvettes. Cause I know it will be a drivers race, for the most part, and those are the most fun. IMO

    I noticed that too!! everywhere I go there is always somebody that has to be a tough guy. One time I was driving home after dinner with my gf, and a Dodge SRT-4 rides up besides me. I ignore him, like I always do with people that want to race. He wouldn't let it go. I would speed up, he would speed up, i would slow down, he would slow down. Finally my GF with was like, what the hell?? I just let her know she needs to get used to this because everybody wants a run at the WS6.

    I totally hear you. I like to play on the Highways where you can see pretty far ahead and in back of you. This was around town. But yeah I love seeing the faces of people when you just pull ahead of them, also you get those people that won't even dare to pull up to your car. So really it is a give and take, some people want to challenge you, and others won't even try... i guess it depends on the driver.
