    Question Best LS1 Car 4 the Buck???

    Hey everyone I'm looking into getting an LS1 car in the next couple of months and I was just wondering which car is the best bang for my dollar. I really like the WS6 and SS cars but they are kinda outta my price range. But of all the LS1 cars, WS6, SS, T/A, Z28, Formula, which one will get me more for my dollar?

    look for a stripper Z28, they are the fastest and probably cost the least because of the lack of options. next best would be a Formula

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    i'd go with the z28 b/c they mass produced the fuck out of them.

    Personally I like the rear end of the Camaro best, but the front end of the Trans Am. The 98-99 are the slowest and the 01-02 are the fastest. The SS and WS6 definetely look better but are they worth it for only 20 hp over the standard models. Any LS1 you get will make you happy, so get what you can afford. They all will be as fast as your wallet is fat. I have a 98 T/A and love it. Good luck with your choice.

    formy WS6 or Formy Firehawk for sure. Both rare, especially the formy firehawk, but the advantage about the hawk, upgraded suspension, IE. Bilsteins and SLP goodies

    bang for the buck... Formula no contest! For some reason they just don't hold their resale value as well as a Z28, SS, or TA. That is a double edge sword though when you want to sell. I like the sleeper aspect, replace the Formula emblems with Firebird ones and suprise the hell out of Mustangs and Ricers!
