    I wish mine was a WS6 sometimes. I wanted a triple black convertible and happened across this one close by. If I had tried hard enough I could've found a WS6, I'm sure. But I made mine a fake Firehawk anyway so it's close enough.

    99 Trans Am(sold)

    When I was moving into my current apartment, some kid yelled out "Hey man, nice viper!!" I just said thanks and continued about my business.

    I have also gotten the "is that the new corvette" statement. I usually respond, nope, It's a 99 Trans Am. They can't believe it is that old.

    Yesterday, had some dipshit ask me when did Ford start making the Probe GT again. Grrrrr I bit my lip walked away, he follows kept asking as I get in I pull out drop window down, I point to the Trans Am lettering on the door and replied " Did a Probe ever do this?" Let out a long as burn out as I left. Looked in mirror he starts shaking his head.
