    Hey, I'm new here in the T/A world. I just bought a 2000 WS6 w/ 60k miles, for 13G. Anyone think that was a good deal? It's a 6 speed w/ the monsoon stereo, only thing it doesnt have is Traction Control (wish it did =/ ), and there is a minor scrape to the right rear fender and a scratch that was touched up on the hood (both drive aways in a parking lot). Overall it runs great, good tires on it too with warrantys. I got it from a guy who takes care of his cars, only thing is there is a small pinging when idling, almost sounds like the cat is rattling, he said that is normal. Any ideas? Anyone thing it was a good (or bad) deal?

    1999 Trans Am

    I think a lot of you guys are looking to pay too much, i just got mine for 16K with 23,400 miles....although 3months after having it i had to put a new fuel pump in it for 1k still 17k for a 99 with low mileage

    ok. im seriously considering buying a M6 trans am in perhaps the next 6 months or so. after riding in my friends 99 T/A w/ a ram air hood i forgot all about camaros. haha and they look SO much better.he said something about when he got his hood put on it wasnt a GM hood because it was too expensive but the hood he has supposedly looks better because the GM hood has like a little gap b/w the hood and frame or something. whats that all about? he also showed me how his air filter was lifted up and like a peice took off of the hood so the air is ramed directly into the engine, and something about exaust? he claims to be pushing 360bhp. thats my kinda car, just not my color and its automatic...although i can drive a stick decent, im sure if i had one in my own car id get good at it fast, and they're so much cooler and when i see a stick in a fast car i have alot more respect for the driver, ya know? ah, out of breath now. so what do yall think?

    so i guess what i really am trying to say is, what kind of things would I start putting on my T/A when i get it? (try to put it into easy terms, im not too car knowlageable...YET) thanks!

    Well nevermind on my car, hydroplanned into a gaurd rail, did a few 360s and hit another wall on the oncoming lane. Not a good night. Don't know if its going to be totalled or not yet.... probably not even worth trying to fix =/. Looks like I got to find a new one... Some bad luck... =/

    360bhp (brake horsepower) brake horsepower is defined as horsepower at the crank w/ accessories(alternator,power steering pump ac.....all parasytic components attached)....all ls1's make approx 350bhp +/- 3% do to manufacturing tolerances and stack up....so its very possible to get a 360bhp engine off the assembly line

    That sucks dude..glad you're ok. F-bodies aren't just your normal everday car...they drive different and have a lot of power, and that rear will come around on you in a heartbeat if you don't learn to control her. If you get a new one..take it easy until you get used to it, especially in bad enough weather to hydroplane.
