    1998 Trans Am WS6 'Vert

Possibly an original 76 Limted Edition TA, which had a 455 and was the first with Hurst hatches and the gold pinstriping scheme later seen in 77. Only 643 of them were made with T tops.
    I like the way you think. IMO, the "choice" birds would be:

    1st gen: '69 T/A 'vert (only 8 made, 1 going up for auction at ACD this year)
    2nd gen: '73 SD-455 (SDs are badass, and '73 styling rules)
    3rd gen: '89 Turbo T/A Indy Pace Car (fastest 3rd-gen f-bod, and up 'til that time the fastest T/A made and only one w/ less than 8 cyls)
    4th gen: '98 WS6 'Vert 6-sp (rarest year, triple black preferred)

    any year of the firehawk in formula trim...

    formulas are rare just by themselves.. not to mention a hardtop version.. and to have a hardtop firehawk formula.. that would be dope.. oh yeah a 98 transam with the LIMITED production next gen 3 spoke flat design.. looks like the 3 spoke that came on 93-97 formulas and ta's I would love to get my hands on some of those

    Actually the highest HP rating in '73-'74 for the TA was the Super Duty 455

    2000 Slp Firehawk #128

    In 1997 there were only 27 Lt-4 firehawks to be built and one of them would be nice to have, but i also love the camaros with the L-t4. The motor pretty much makes the power of a Ls-1 and some before you could even dream about what a ls-1 could do.

    Lol...I remember me and the wife back in '98 (after seeing the infamous "Stoplight" black WS.6 TV commercial!), looking for a WS.6 PERIOD in our area (black)....you stood a better chance of finding a dino egg...! So we got tired of hunting, and just got a "regular" T/A, and a then-new ASCD ram air hood and a lower air box, and later MTI clear lid. Gawd, that car still ROCKS!!! Don't know how many actual WS.6's were made in '98...but I don't think there was a lot.

    1994 Trans Am GT Convt.

    As with many, I would go with the 69 Trans Am Convertible. I know there was only 8 made, but i did some research one time and I believe only 3 are known to exist. Believe it or not my 94 Trans Am Convt is pretty rare. Only made like 250 Convertible TA Gt's with the trans. performance option. But I love the 99 30th Annv Inverse. (blue with white stripes) and of course the Collector's Edition.

    in that ebay ad it say "#1026 never been titled" but it has 17k miles on it.

    unless I do not understand what "never been titled" means, how did the car get 17k and not be titled/licensed?


    I like the white/blue 73 car you guys showed. sharp car.
