    Thats too high, even for that low of miles. You could damn near get a used C6 for that price.

    Unless your plans for it are keeping it pristine and later on selling it at Barret Jackson, why not keep it. Make it better then a WS6. I looked around and wanted a WS6, couldn't find one then came across my gem. After talking with some of the guys here, I knew I'd be modding mine, it made since to get mine (stock) and just mod away because everything that I'll be putting on would just get replaced anyways.

    I agree.

    I wouldn't pay that much for a CETA.

    Unless your going to keep for barret-jackson, and only a CETA, formula or firehawk would be worthy of that. Not a WS6.

    yeah too high.. I wish was in the market for a firehawk cause a guy had one the other day with 15k miles and wanted $17000. It was really a beautiful car, so just keep lookin. I'm doin the same thing: in an endless search as we speak. I'd just keep yours though even if its not a real ws6, unless that really bothers you.

    Yeah, you should be able to find plenty of black ones at least. I'm havin a hard time finding a sunset orange one, but blacks a hell of a lot more common. Best way to look (in my opinion at least) is allofcraigs.com. searches craigslist across the nation

    (just one idea for u)

    WS6's arent really that much better than a t/a. They have 20 more hp but the heavier brakes and suspension slow it down. Just get a ram air set up on your t/a and its beating ws6. Firehawks a different story though those things are just mean.

    Hold on there. The sentence I put in bold is true. The rest of the quote not so much. 20 horsepower more, thats debatable. They might be rated 20 hp more by GM but on the dyno, they'll show about the same hp. Same brakes on TA or WS6. Suspension doesn't slow them down. Ram air isn't gonna make your TA beat a WS6. Firehawks really aren't a whole different as far as hp or performance either

    Imho, no f-body is worth that much. I don't care if it got shrink and bubble wrapped then got packed in an giant box full of packing peanuts. You could take that money and build a monster and have it another 10-20 years if kept out of the wheather.. Just my .02.. I think some folks let the fact that they're not built anymore go to thier heads..
