    Aside from the WS6, I have a Firebird that's black.....I was in the same situation: I wanted to get the Firebird repainted black. I went and got quotes from several places, all of them quite reputable, and the results were amazing. The highest quote I got was from the local Pontiac dealership, with a quote of 7k. The lowest quote I got was $1800 from a quality body shop (that also offered a Lifetime Warranty on their work). The rest of the quotes were mostly in the 3-4k range, with some higher than 4k and some lower than 3k. So, I would say that you should definitely get SEVERAL quotes from shops in your area, as the prices may vary by a significant amount! Also, don't be hesitant to check out smaller shops, even if you haven't heard of them. Sometimes, they will offer very reasonable prices and the paint job will be high quality.

    also ask if they've done those cars before. my guy knows the ins/outs of a 4th gen very well and did the batmobile back when I had some nasty incounters with that.
