    here's what all has happened to me.

    1- driving down the street at about 20....rednecks
    "yell slow the f*** down!" I get pulled over about 10 minutes later because he ran in and called the police on me, because my car was rumbling...
    2- when I had my 99 v6 bird people said "those are girl cars, and they're slow as shit" or "camaros are way faster" but now that i have an 02 Z28, the same people say "I always preferred the trans ms, the were way faster than the gay camaros"

    then the jealous little assholes drive away in their corsicas, 1987 v6 camaros, etc...

    oh i hate pushy car salesman. and i really hate when i go to a gm dealership and they try to push a ford or dodge on you. this one salesman was trying to sell me a town & country and i just kept telling him that you will not get me into anything other than a gm. thats when he broke out the line "what can we do to put you in this town & country today?"

    and you can't say your not somewhat partial to the ws6 because if performance was all you were worried about you wouldn't have wasted 250 dollars on a hood that absolutely does nothing for performance.

    i like the look of a ws6 over the ss, but not the formula over the ss. with the right wheels on an ss you can make them look awsome.

    Well I'll admit I should of ordered the car as a WS6 because it could of been 1 of 3 NBM WS6 Formula's built in 1998, Obviously I could not of forseen this. I picked up the Hood in `99 at a swap meet. After paint it still cost me 1/3 of what GM charges for it unpainted. Only a fool would pass up that deal and I did get it because it looks Kick Ass.
    I also Ordered a Formula because I didn't want T-tops or leather which is the only way a Trans Am comes.
    I could care less if my Lowly Formula retains it's value as well as a Stock Original Low Mileage WS6. Even though my car is actually More rare then a Dime a Dozen WS6, I actually like to drive and enjoy mine rather than leave it under a car cover in the garage till the right 80+ * Sunday comes around while at the same time bitch because I now have over 2,000 miles on the odometer of my retirement plan.
    At least I don't claim the car to be a WS6 like so many posers who slap a R/A hood on their car do.

    We all like different things and that is what makes this hobby great.
    Cause being Different is Good.
