    i agree i love these cars too but i have seen rusty ones usually the bad ones dont get washed well enough that includes the underside it doesnt matter what brand if a vehicle is made of metal it will rust also the first 4th gens are going to be 15 yrs old soon

    I have had nothing but problems with mine...mostly due to me being retarded. I love every minute of the driving experience.

    Man, are you joking?!?! I have an 01 GAGT and My wife and I bthink it is the most uncomfortable car we've ever owned. That seat is like sitting on a concrete slab.
    I much prefer my Z to that dog any day. We recently picked up an 06 Cobalt base model and it's much easier on the Butt for sure.

    Love the car. Last year my wife and 2 kids took 2 1800 mile round trips. One to TX, one to Florida. Had no problems, got 25 to 27.4 MPG. Was a little tight on space, but we knew that before leaving and packed accordingly. Much rather drive this than our Jeep Cherokee. (But we will be taking on our upcoming trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras this Feb, due to weather uncertainties.)

    I was just wondering if anyone else has as many problems with the stock "cats" on their ws6. I have to replace another one.

    If they suck, then I love one sucky car. I guess what they might be trying to say, is that the suspension and rest of the drive train could use some upgrades...IF...your going to be adding horsepower to the engine.
    Stock, I don't see a problem. Do they handle like a Ferrari? No.

    Are they a great street car? You bet yo azz.

    Oh and one mo' thing. This is NOT a luxury car...30 hours in any car sucks, your gonna want to get out and give yourself a good stretch. Let's be realistic. Geeeeeze.

    to the OE convertors. But, maybe that was one way to get a good HP rating from the factory. Oh well, they have a long warranty. I had both of mine replaced free before I got my Hookers and ORY. No emissions testing here.......

    I have a feeling they are going to push for all states to have testing after that global warming report came out.

    There is nothing we humans can do about global warming, we are only contributing to it, barely. Remember, we are (geologically speaking) barely coming out of an ice age. Warming is a natural rebound. There are many fossils of warm creatures living near the north and south poles.

    I was on a debate team awhile back and we had this topic and there are so many variable that can make it go either way. Usually our evidence that we came up with showed a bit of warming which melts some the ice caps wich cools the oceans and makes us go towards another ice age. We even proved it was raising of cows in tropical location that were really causing it.

    I love driving my Trans Am. I drove it from Houston TX to Minnesota. I thought is very smooth and comfy. I have a built engine and its lowered. And I have a moser 12 bolt that humms. But that noise is not noticable with the radio on. I still was able to get 21mpg. I plan to take a long road trip every summer with the trans am.

    Same here man, I've never any rust on a 4th gen. And there are plenty of these cars that spend 1/4 of their lives covered in road grime and salt.

    Paint and rustproofing technology has come a long way since the 80's.

    And it shoudn't be.

    If I wanted soft steering feel, a light ass clutch, a soft suspension, and a shifter that I could move by blowing on it, I wouldn't have bought a muscle car. The F-Body's personality is macho, its not some little econo car thats meant for sprinting to the grocery store. And I sure as hell like it that way, every time I drive my car it makes me realize how much I love American muscle
