    should i buy this ws6

    Went to look at a ws6 today....my 95 deville blew up....i have a couple general questions about what to look for and such when buying one of these cars and was also wondering what you guys think it would be worth.

    Its a 99 black ws6 with c6 wheels but mostly bone stock other wise with 75,000 miles on it.....the transmission was rebuilt about 15000 miles ago because he said the OD went out on it....when rolling along in D and you gear down to first it makes a pretty ruff noise....i asked the guy about it and he said he was pretty sure it was just the link being too tight or something...does this sound legit???...

    did find some mold under the back hatch where the t tops go and he said the car had been sitting for sale for a while and he acted pretty surprised when he saw it....it needs an O2 sensor replaced so the check engine light is on.....the driver side light doesnt pop all the way up due to a damaged gear....and it made a weird grinding noise when i got it a little sideways but i think that was just due to the back tires rubbing....

    anyway so what do you guys think its worth and what do you think about the tranny problem....he is askin 8500 for it but he will come off of that a little

    ok let me ask something.....isnt the ws6 compared with the camaro ss and then the transam model compared to the z28.....so if it says transam on it like i said does that mean its not a ws6

    On the back of the car it should say trans am. the ws6 is just an additional package to the trans am. (hood, suspension) you could use the vin number to find out if it's a real ws6

    if you look on the door in the id numbers there it should say ws6, thats another way you can tell if its a ws6 or not

    Looks like a nice car, offer him 8 even and call it a day. If it is in REAL good condition thats a good deal.

    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    Repost my response from your thread in the general section

    I shopped for 3 months before I found my 98' T/A. Paid $6700, had 106k miles on it, but was in far better condition than the one you described. Previous owner fixed the lights, other than that nothing wrong except she was stock, no WS6. In the long run, I think I am better off, because I want to do most of the mods myself.....

    it should have smoked the 95 caddy, sounds like it's ready for a tune up!

    True but if they were just going of the butt dyno those northstar 300hp 300trq engines feel pretty stout from a roll.
