    Asking why you bought your trans am is like asking a guy why he wants to sleep with Megon Fox.

    WS6 Black Convertible
    2001 Trans Am

    I was driving by the GM dealer and it was sitting on the front lawn next to the highway. Called the wife to check it out since we both wanted a vert. She said get it, so later that day after a test drive and kicking the rear end out when I hammered it, brought me to my senses and I knew that I wanted it. 3 years later and i have no regrets - just love it.

    In 99, my best friend bought a black 99 Corvette from Carmax. I went with him one day to get it serviced for something. While waiting we toured the lot, and lo-and-behold they had a 98 black Trans Am. It was half jealousy of my friend's Vette and half love at first sight. The next day I went back to Carmax and bought it! My buddy owned the Vette for less than a year. I owned that TA for 7 years and 175k miles...

    I regretted selling that one pretty much 10 minutes after it was out of my sight! I held off almost 3 years before giving in and buying another. I had almost giving up on finding the red WS6 that I wanted, when one suddenly showed up at Carmax again. So I am now on my 2nd Trans Am from Carmax of all places!

    1998 Trans Am

    I always liked them, I missed buying a 78 TA Black and gold about 8 yrs ago. Then I test drove a used 95 Formula 6spd in 1996 and when I went back to the lot to buy it someone else had got it. Only reason I didn't jump on it was because it was RED. I just don't like bright red vehicles. There weren't any other good deals so I got a brand new Mustang GT for $15k. Then my mom bought a 1998 TA. She liked the new style and it was only $24k since it was titled to gm and even though it had around 300 miles it was considered used. They said it went to some shows. They sold the Gold one I wanted and was jealous after driving her white one. Over the years I've had pickups and suv's for work and a Mustangs and a 97 Turbo Talon. 3 yrs ago my mom decided to sell the TA since she needed a year round car good in the snow so I took it off her hands for what they were going to give her if she traded it in. She got a $22k loadd Cobalt for $14,500 since it was a leftover. Now she is retiring and moving to Cali she is dumping the cobalt and getting a Vette.

    I was seperated from my exwife, and the 10mpg duallie ford wasnt going to cut it. I wanted a 68 firebird with the big block, and blue with white stripes. My dad said i'd b a lot happier with a newer car. I would get air conditioning, gas mileage, stereo, etc. I found mine on ebay. Love at first sight.The price was right, and i flew out to houston to buy it. I brought my exwife with( not ex at the time). She asked who was gonna pick us up. I said i dont know. She says, then how will you know who it is? I smiled and said I know what he's driving. Needless to say she was EXTREMELY pissed.We were making the loop out of the airport, and she asked, Why did you buy this? I slapped it into 2nd at 40 and STOMPED on it. That's y i said. I was challenged to two races before i made it home. She calls it the batchelor car. Even with her in the passenger seat, girls stare and wave. Still have the WS6. Ex wife, not so much. Now you know who the mob is in my sig.....

    FYI: Pontiac V8 engines thru the 400 are all considered the same, insofar as they are identical externally, with different bore and stroke combinations creating the CID.

    While it has the same external dimensions the 421, 428 and 455 have larger journal diameters.

    last april i had saved up enough to buy one as a 'graduation' gift for myself since my dad wasnt going to get me anything,

    that drive home was the most peacefull i have ever felt, no movie, themepark ride, life accomplishment, or even any girl made me feel the way i did driving home that night, my T/A is my pride and joy, any bad day i have can be relieved with her, just makes me feel whole,

    i have made so many good friends with that car, and also met a few girls for no other reason but.

    i love my Pontiac
    SAME HERE . SAME HERE . Straight out of HS. And on a bad day, i just get in my car and drive feeling like king of the road . WS6 M6 FTW !!!!!!!!!!
