    Yeah, thats what they called it. They called it Velocity Yellow for the C6's though.

    LOL i know right? Thats the only way I can afford these cars though....its hard trying to pay for college and having nice stuff. And yes....Its great to be back on the dark side, I've always been a GM guy and eventhough the mustang was nice....it always felt a bit wrong...kinda like hooking up with your best friends girl

    No, I just picked a set up the other weekend. The previous owner was a Pontiac dealer owner and he had ordered a new set of stripes in 01 when he ordered the car cause he knew he was going to take the factory ones off when he got it, so I got the entire set for $100. Do you know what they run though?

    Well got the WS6 back from the frame shop today....frame is all straight and looking good, but they found that the rear axle's bent (toed out) on the one side and the engine is not sitting level in the engine compartment....so I guess new poly motor mounts are in store and a new pedestal on the one side. The good news is that I already have a new rear axle for the car....it came with it. But i don't really know what it came out of....if it came out of an auto car....it will have the wrong gears so I think a gear change is necessary. Prolly 3.73 I'm thinking.
    So I add a few more things to the "To-Do list" and emptied a bit more $$ out of my pockets---shouldn't that be the other way around?

    When the guy bought the car he didn't like the black top or mirrors, he thought it made the car look light a "spaceship" so he repainted the top and mirrors. Got rid of the CETA decals and did a more traditional, dual stripe job on it.

    So, just preference. He told me he didn't get the car because it was a collector's edition. He just wanted a yellow WS6, therefore he didn't care about preserving the look at all.

    Yes, I plan on restoring the car to its original state. Decals and all (I will be modding the car though. So far: Bilstein shocks, and qtp lt headers, performance clutch)

    That is going to look awesome with that yellow, I've always liked the way the ceta looked. Good Luck with the build.
