    Should I get this car? Help me out guys.....

    Its a 1998 Trans Am black Ws6 ram air. It has 45000 miles on it, female driven. The asking price is 13,500$. Is this a good deal? I've been looking for one for almost 2 years. Does the 98 T/A has any side effects that the 99-02 dont have?

    Tuning software was mainly written for 99 and newer.

    I just don't like buying the first year of anything. Too many bugs.

    I was thinking about that, I'll try to talk them down on the price. The KBB value is around 11K. I'll have to let them know that.

    If I do get this car, once I'm finished with my upgrades, people are going to be like

    I'd hold out and try to find something else. I agree with Ed that the first year of prod are not the ones to get. I'd also get a M6 unless you want to drag. For that price you should be able to find a well modded one or one with even less miles that doesn't have that odd looking single exhaust. Seeing it's been female drivin you'll need to have the motor de-carbed, dings removed, curb rash removed from the wheels, brakes replaced, ect. that the average female drivers (I did not say all) inflict upon cars.

    That's what the 98 WS6's came with from the factory. Very odd.

    That's because things are screwy for the first year of prod. until they can figure things out. Just look what happened with the GTO. The sucker that couldn't wait for the 2nd year are out 50HP!

    HEY!! Some of us already had cars in the garage that had 50 more HP. The 04 fit me perfect. I wanted a decent daily driver that had some balls and I picked mine up with 150 miles on it for $23k. Sticker was still in the glove box showing $33k. I've been happy with my 04 but if that was the only performance car I had it would be modded by now.
