So I told her that we would find one just like she wanted and that we would get one that someone else would want to buy later when she was tired of it. So I found on Auto Trader a Mint NBM 2000 WS6 6 speed and that's the end of the story... Almost, She graduated up to a Vette, and I got the hand me down TA!
    im curious what you were driving while your wife was cruising a WS6? Cuz i wouldnt be able to handle that

    1998 ws6 trans am

    I bought my 98 WS6 last summer. I sold my blowthrough mercury capri so I could by some modern muscle. I went shopping for mustangs (Cobra, 05 3 valve) when I came across my 98 at a little dealership when I stopped to check out an 05 Mustang. I could see it had SLP exhaust so I went over to take a look. The dealer said it was sold but showed me the car anyway. He showed me the carfax and the upgrades list and I was really interested. The price was right but as I said it was sold. A couple weeks later I drove by the lot to find the car was still there. The deal had fell through so I took it for a test drive and bought it. The car has a full BMR suspension, AFR heads, 42# injectors, LS6 intake, SLP headers, Comp Com, and HP tuner. The car is fun to drive and grabs alot of attention, more than nay mustang I have had. Not the easiest car to work on but a lot of fun.

    ^ Agree with the gas mileage. It gets 8 more mpgs than my old dodge.

    Looked at vette's... too many people own them. Then looked at mustangs, too slow. Then Looked at Camaro, interior was bery poorly assemled.. In winter of 02 picked up the 01 ws6 for 17,000 with only 3,000 miles on it... couldnt turn it down..

    trans ams gone now

    i was about 10 or 11 when i was sitting on the computer after school and i heard this sound like rumbling thunder appear outside. i looked out and there was my brother in this car he just bought. i never heard anything like it before. he took me for a ride and i was hooked! this 1985 trans am changed my life. from there on i was into cars and wanted my own trans am. i got out of high school and had 2 v6 firebirds. finally i got my 1st trans am with nitrous, heads and cam, hooker headers, and some laughing gas that powered it to 11.7's. then i had a 97 t-top with 6 speeds of freedom. red on tan leather, that was a sweet car! now they are gone and i have a crappy ass truck im stuck with. i saw the ls1 commercials when they came out and always wanted one of them, but with a child and more to come, that day will have to wait. now i turn my attention to a GTP to fill my speed needs and room for a growing family

    I don't know remember how old I was when the commercial for the new trans am came out. The one where the car eats the red car at the stop light. I couldnt get that out of my head. I bought a 89 Camaro when I was 16. Then I bought an 88 Mustang GT, then I got rid of them and got a lifted Z71. I looked for three years before I found the perfect car. My dad said that that car will never leave the family and it wont.

    I guess I never answered. My main reasons, which made it the best known option:
    Affordable
    Looks good
    Physical comfort
    Should retain value well

    Probably, if being totally honest, most of us would say that.

    to be totally honest I think that the trans am looks a lot better than the vette. It almost looks like its moving even when it isnt, thats why i love it so much

    I bought my first one (on #4 now) in 2004 in Killeen Texas. I had a Ford Probe GT at the time and always loved the Trans Ams. I saw a 2000 M6 on the front of the lot and test drove it and loved it. I actually had been looking at the GTO's at the time and the Trans Am just felt faster and looked better. I left the delership after they tried selling it to me at an outrageous price, they called me back a week later and knocked 5K off the price and I went and picked it up.
