    What kinda of Trans Mission? Could buy a hell of a transmission for that money. Around here, $4,500-5,500. Also good luck finding a new WS6, lol.

    With all the money you have put in it I would keep it as a daily driver. The car has 179000 miles and will be hard to sell. 4500 - 5500 I think is optimistic.

    Just pull the motor and make it faster by rebiulding it and add a cam then buy a WS6 hood and call it good, but if you are looking at a price well Kelly Blue Book.com (KBB.com) was set at $5,620 for a excelent condition Trans Am.

    plz do not sell your t/a just to get a ws6, completely pointless.

    stall that auto and you'll have a new profound love for your car.

    Do an m6 t-56 swap out! That will solve that problem! There has to be a shop that will inspect your car down there and pass you no problem! How else does eveyone in CA get their cars on the road. I was stationed in San Diego. Aren't your inspections like once every 2 years or something? Ask around and I will too to find a shop. Tear that engine down and rebuild or replace the original for a ls2 or bigger. There is no value in your car so you might as well put some money into the parts that you can tear out and resell if there are problems! New ram air hood and lid too!

    The miles it has mean alot. Id say about 3000 witch is not justice for a awsome car like that. It looks like a really well kept car...then again everything down here in south texas is cheap

    I wouldn't buy that car. It LOOKS nice, but I stay away from cars with that type of mileage. That's just me though, but in reality you aren't going to get much more than 3-4k for it.

    Great color though, and it looks real clean for the mileage. Maybe you can luck out and find someone looking for a good base for a drag car, and doesn't care about the motor or mileage.

    Also, if I were you I'd put it back to stock as best I could, and save all the mods for the new car. None of those mods are really going to help you get any more for the car, they're better off transfered to the new car.

    And I hear you aobut wanting a M6, sometimes I get bored with my A4 and would love to have one too.
