What do you think?

This is a discussion on What do you think? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I would definitely go with the silver one, but then again I am biased on that Is it just me ...

    Is it just me or was the idle a bit high on the nbm? And the smoke was probably just steam, but then again the engine noise was weird and then I just wouldn't feel comfortable buying a car with messed internals.

    I get feeling that the car is a WS6 replica b/c it was in an accident. I wouldnt bother with that blue one. Too much money and too many potential problems.

    And FWIW, I kinda think the "smoke" is just water vapor/condensation. LS1's aren't really known for valve seals issues...but you should be able to smell smokey oil burn when you go look at it(if it is burning oil)
    What year is it and how many miles?
    I thought vapor at first too but watch it closely. No vapor at all at idle and smokes like a train when he revs it then when he walks around front you can still see it hanging in the air behind the car. I'd b 90% sure that's smoke doing that.
    That noise sounds like a lifter that isn't pumped up IMO.

    How many miles? Whats the asking price?

    I got mine at 37k miles for only 12 grand. Only thing that needed replacing were the tires and wheels.
    I personally think i did pretty well with that.

    Ya, there was no way that it was going to make it with the roads, they were horrible. I pulled it with my Yukon and I was in 4WD the whole way. It's sitting in the barn, dirty, and the hoses are frozen.

    It's my dad's, its very nice. A few years ago our other barn cought on fire so my dad got to build his "dream" barn. Haha It's messy now because we just remodeled our house. A great place to store a car and work on them.

    I am really happy with the car, I can't wait to get it out.
