    Formula or Trans Am Ws6

    There are two white birds at this car dealership, one is a 96 Formula with 89,000 miles and the other is a 97 Trans am Ws6 with 106,000 miles on it. I was just wondering which one you guys would buy.

    The TA, my personal preference. Guess color, a4/m6 would matter too.

    96 Formula or 97 TA

    It's personal preference in this case, both are LT1 cars but I'd look at both cars and make the best choice based on condition, documentation (oil changes, maintenance records, car fax), trans preferance, price, milage, then body style.

    normally I would side with Trans am but due to mileage I would go for the less of the two. But then again if you plan on swapping the motor in the future then get which ever one you prefer the most i love the Trans ams.

    Im a formula guy, but if I were to buy an LT1, I'd go for the WS6. Then again, 89K sounds a lot better than 106K. White is def the way to go though, I love the way mine looks.

    The Fomula was Definitely taken care of, it was garage kepted by an elderly man and drove on weekends have records. The T/A doesnt have much info on it. Both stock except the exhaust on the T/A.

    $7,500 for everything including tax, white, very good condition for the year. T/A is a little cheaper because of the miles, and doesnt have records.

    Yeah, i love m6 but it has alot of miles, the a4 is better kept. Would i regret getting a a4 later on?

    I see more problems with a4s, I never had any, but an m6 will take more abuse. 106k isnt that much, my car has 115k, my last one had 136k. Not a problem with either!

    That makes me feel reassured, T/A manual is always good choice, i think that is the one im leaning towards now. Thanks for the info.

    A lot of people who buy automatics set them up for track use. If its a daily driver I would go for a manual, its just more fun to drive a stick.
