    Clean looking car. Here are some things to check out: Guide to Buying a Fbody If you can, it's not a bad idea to get the car up in the air to check things over on the underside too.

    It is a real WS6, has the 3.23 rearend ratio, and looks like its in good shape. I see no red flags and the price is right for the mileage. Good find!!

    A little off topic but thanks for that link. Didn't even notice the crack in the door until that thread. Only had the car for 3 days. Good to see I have a real Ws6 though...

    Good find. Double check all RPO codes on driver's door.

    Try to get the price down from the dealer, (you got to play the game),
    Because the way it looks you will have to buy four new tires.

    Hey neighbor!

    Red WS6, that's my favorite! Still has the stock airbox, even...

    Yeah, like they said above, check the RPO codes on the door, make sure 'WS6' is in there, that's how you'll know it's really a WS6 and not falsely badged or a clone, and read the link there...

    Oh wait, I see Cutlass chimed in, he must've run the vin for you, that was nice of him...
