    previously wrecked

    im looking at a trans am that has been wrecked before. do you guys think it would be worth 6200 bucks. the motor has 80 k on it and 123k on the chassis. this would be a daily driver. do you think it would be reliable

    Well I would get it for 6200 if the frame is straight all everything is ok. The airbag light is on and the security light is on.. thats a big let down.

    where is this at in ky??

    and where are you located.. i couldnt read the license plate.. too blurry.

    Shit if someone doesnt buy it I might try to hook my gf up with it

    To many skeletons on that closet, move on even if it means paying more.

    yeah i don't like buying cars that have been in accidents. suspension can be permanently messed up. also, it wears out or shortens life of basically anything else in the car like shocks, ac compressor, anything that absorbs some of the shock.

    also, non original engine is bad. who knows how well it was put in and where it came from. plus, our engines will make it to 200k if taken care of (even from someone with a heavy foot i hear).

    well i would just drive the car back and forth from school. i live in a very small town with just one stop light so stop and go traffic is not a factor. also gas mileage is an issue. my truck currently gets 15 in town driving so do you think the trans am would get better mpg?

    ^ i get abut 20 city and 30 highway with my m6. i have heard our engines when cruising skip every other cylinder and act as a 4 banger to get good mileage. plus, if you were in 6th gear and somehow managed to get to 6000 rpm, you'd be over 250mph. 5th gear is over 180. our gears are long which helps as well.

    Umm, I do not know where you heard that, but you are wrong. It runs on all 8 at all times.

    ive pretty much give up on this car because it just wouldnt be a good daily driver. im just gonna look around on autotrader and cars.com. but honestly are trans ams practical daily drivers? like i said it would just be back and forth from school which is like 10 miles combined for me. i just dont no if a car like this would be practical with gas prices.(even though they are goin down somewhat around here)

    All perspective. I bought mine to SAVE gas. My DD before this averaged 14, now I get 20 on average, like I said, perspective. Of course it is all about how you drive it.

    most of my driving would be conservative. i live in a very small town so stop and go is not an issue. more and likely i will get an automatic if i do get one. yea my 96 s10 gets 15 mpg around town...lol but the 4.3 vortech will run pretty good tho

    Well, thats what a guy with a ls1 vette and a guy with a lt1 formula said. didn't know if its true, but its been done before so gm has the technology. the main problem was that when they first did this, it only used the other 4 cylinders with heavy acceleration. so, if its a woman behind the wheel, the other 4 cylinders get problems from not being in use.

    don't know if thats toward the engine thing or tranny, but if its the tranny use a gear calculator. they are that long, but of course our cars don't have the power (and downforce) to get there.
