    is it worth it?

    I was wondering who all has ws6 trans ams out there. I bought mine 2 years ago at 17 and planned on keeping it my whole life. its not a daily driver so i keep the miles low 50k now and do a few mods as i go. but wonder if it is a good car worth keeping for another 30 plus years. oppinions?

    It's what I plan on doing.

    You just need to realize it will cost money to keep it running, espeically the older it gets. As long as your prepared for that, keep it till something better comes along.

    No plans to ever sell ours. Doubt it will ever again be worth what we paid for it either.

    Drive it and have fun with it.

    Who are you saving it for?

    If you think of it as an investment sell it now and buy some Blue Chip stocks or GIC's in 30yrs they will be worth a hell of a lot more than the car.

    This.
    If you have to ask other people if we think it's worth keeping then perhaps you need to think a little more about what you want. Personally, my plan is to never sell it. I'll keep it going for as long as I want which at this point will be forever. Now if I ran into a few people that said I was stupid for it, all I can say is, good thing it's not them keeping it, only me. Comes down to what YOU want to do.

    I ordered my WS6 on the day GM announced the f-body was dead... I'm never selling it.

    But that being said, it's not an investment, it's a hobby. I love the car and want to be driving it when I'm 70!... and keeping it running with my 401k money!

    It's worth keeping if you love it. Don't keep it just for an investment, chances are it won't be worth alot.

    Who knows, maybe it will, but you never know, so don't count on that.

    I plan on keeping mine for a long time. Can't say I won't EVER sell it, but I can't see myself wanting to any time soon.
