    Here we go again

    I got a new car to drive while I am waiting to get a Corvette, and to be my daily driver when I get a vette. It is a 2000 WS6 6 speed. I was planning on keeping it stock. This is my 4th Trans Am. I Swore to myself that I was keeping it stock...


    2 months later, I have spent 2 grand on it and I just bought some Hooker supercomp longtubes with Magnaflow exhaust Saturday (I got a killer deal) that are going in tomorrow! At this rate I will never have the dough to put down on a Z06!

    Thats why I prefer having only 1 nice car and a daily diver and/or truck. Having 2 nice cars (for me a 71 Bird and 02 CETA) produces a power struggle between the two. I have a hard time deciding which one I want to spend time and money on, consequently I have 2 cars in pieces (unfinished). Think about which one you really want (vette or WS6) and get a Cobalt or something for a DD lol

    No just the regular setup. I bought it from a guy locally. Check craigslist

    I'm torn between Borla and Magnaflow but it appears that everyone has Magnaflow and loves it.

    Ha, the wife has put her foot down now. We have to get her a GTO before I get any more mod $. We're trading her car for one on Saturday.

    The headers yes. I am then gonna get a local speed shop to install the exhaust cause I dont have a welder. This will be my third set of headers I have put in, so hopefully it doesnt take all day this time

    Ha, she is no stranger to performance cars. She drove my 98 Stalled cammed WS6 all the time and loved it. She really likes the GTO's though.

    College station FTW. I used to be stationed at Fort Hood and would go down that way to party with a friend of mine that went to TLU.

    The one we are looking at is an 04 A4 Impulse blue. 30K miles. It looks flawless. The dealership has it listed for 13,800 but I am going to try and get them to give us a little more for her car in trade than it's worth so I dont mind that price.
