    I took that into consideration

    And there is a TON more c5 vettes out there that are cheap and nice.

    Like... in the 12k to 19k range.

    I have my eye on an all black 2000 hatch.

    I dont really like the rear window on the coupes. I like the long one with the hatch..

    I wont pay much on payments. But that insurance.... is kinda scary.. But totally worth it. ILL BE IN A VETTE

    Camaroking has been in trouble before for buying plain camaros and t/as and passing them off as ws6 and SS, also he has bought accident cars, fixed them and sold them as clean. He is not trust worthy.

    what year is this car? i dont see anyhting in regards to an upgraded intake. if its an 01-02 it already has an ls6 intake from the factory. if its 98-00 and has the ls6 intake then yes, the car has an intake upgrade. everything under that engine bay looks like it did from the factory. double check everything to make sure you arent getting taken...

    That's some bullshit he probably pitches to people who know nothing about the ws6. So whats he saying? That his nonoriginal ws7 conversions are worth as much as a ws6?

    How much for insurance, I heard for some it was cheaper than a f-body since less kids crash them.

    I dont really beleive the quotes. But they said 135 a month if I pay all 6 months all at once. Otherwise its 150 a month.

    I am expecting around the 200-255 range though..

    Which would suck... But im sure it would be worth it.

    $255 a month! holy shit, that is not worth it. with your car payment and what you would save in insurance you get prob just get a new caddy.

    full coverage on my 05 wrangler and my 00 ta arent even that much combined

    Personal preference... I think the gold accents are decent... The window banner could go... Other than that... I think it's good to go.

    Really? Because I was about to get a subaru sti or an evo. And the insurance rates for those are over 300 bucks a month for an 18 year old. And thats WITH my dad on the insurance too.....


    I wish that I could get a new escalade. But with no credit history. I doubt
    that they will give me one regardless of how much I am willing to put down.

    I am starting to get over the whole sports car thing. I Just want a nice new car.

    And I dont know what yet.

    I'm not criticizing the look of the car, I just think the price is bullshit.

    BTW love your avatar pic, where'd you find the image?

    While looking through the guys website this is exactly what I was thinking. Something is fishy about some of the f-bodies. You can buy a car that has been in a slight fender bender and still have a "clean title." The law does not require the seller to inform the buyer that the car has been wrecked unless the car was claimed as totaled by the insurance company, in which it would have a salvage title. I knew a guy that wrecked a brand new t/a and had over $10,000 worth of damage and it still had a clean title.
    Notice with the #29 collector's edition that it is missing the graphics on the doors and rear quarter panel. Also when you buy a WS6 from the dealer it will say "WS6 Ram air & handling pkg" under options/ equipment. It appears that he is marketing many of his vehicles like that. He has a NBM t/a on ther with a "WS6 Package, that appears to be a WS6, even with the wheels, however, the exaust tips are the stock t/a tips not the WS6 tips. The car seats are questionable too. Some have the original leather that is in bad condition and some, as the firehawk, being replaced to a vibrant red, would have probably been worth more leaving the stock covers.

    Not trying to bash the guy or his business. Just warning you to be cautious when a few things are questionable. I would hate for you to take out a loan with interest only to find out that you got a wrecked vehicle thats not an original WS6. Once you buy a car its yours, no return policy. Look it over and look for signs of being repainted and possible water damage. Just some food for thought
