Can you guys give me your thoughts on Autocheck versus carfax?
I have seen some stories about carfax and also an Autocheck result
is a lot cheaper than the other?!
Need this advice as i may have found a car !!!!

Hey Trevor. Tell me about the car.

A suitable sounding WS6 has popped up on the radar in Orange county.
As suggested before by various people... is it possible i could
hassle somebody to call in and give the car an honest "warts and all"
appraisal?? Nothing binding obviously but i would sooo appreciate this?!
It has to be soon as i have finished all of the "how much can you knock off"
talks and we have discussed all of the formalities such as payment methods
and all of that.
He is going to mail me all the critical pics such as RPO sticker. panel cracks, sail
panel blisters, wheel rash, seat bolsters... and so on.
So... PLEASE.... if anybody can help i'd so appreciate it!
The zip is 92868.
PM or post... not bothered!

Oh hey Trevor! I forgot to tell you that the guy you wanted me to contact, he never replied to the email I sent.

Remember, the red one in Florida?

Yep... remember that one very well!
He was very inflexible on the price and he was/is one of the psycho
"walk up to me with cash or it's not gonna happen brigade"
guess what... it never happened!
Thanks so much for doing your bit though, Guy.
What i DO need though is some kind individual to offer their
look/see services on the one i have found in Socal... Orange County
Zip 92868 C'mon guys... help me out here as buying unseen is a

Hey Trevor. Not a problem. What are the stats for this one in Cal? Year, miles, color? All that stuff.

The hunt goes on for that elusive WS6!
Had a test drive in a very interesting one today.
It is over here in England and it is in wonderful condition.
Who would have thought that #1 of the 8 Carl Black "Blackbird"
WS6's would be an hours drive down the road from me!!
Only 11000 on the clock and pampered! Alas we could not agree
on the price. For that read... "i could not get it cheap enough"
A couple of pics....

I just ended my 6+ month long search of the perfect TA for me. Finalizing the deal on an '01 WS6 early next week.
If any of those links perk your interest let me know and if I have time and you would like I would be happy to take a look at any of them for you.
Good luck with your search. I've been extremely patient with my search and its finally paying off.

Hey Mr. Slow...
( don't know your name!) I really appreciate the offer of a look see for me!
I emailed the pewter car almost three weeks ago to discover it has 100k on it
and its an auto. The auto is fine with me but too many miles...
The Black one looks good, but Black is a no no for me as it will have to reside under a
full all weather cover and Black will look awful if not used for a while whereas a silver
or pewter will be far more of a "wipe clean" without the need for a pro detail just to
drive to work!!
The dealer car is simply tooo much $$.
But..... i am grateful for the offer and please.... join my small but loyal band
of regular searchers who feed me links from all over!!

I realized the ones I showed you might of had more mileage than you're looking for but I just thought I'd share anyways.
And no prob on offering to look at them for you.
I'll keep an eye out for ones with lower mileage and if you happen to come across any around here that I'm overlooking and time permitting I will go look at them for you.

VIN decode please!?
I know this has been done a lot in the past and i would SO appreciate
somebody being able to shed light on this car being a genuine(or not)
There are a couple of things around the car saying not but equally the
seller is adamant it is! I know.... ask him for the RPO sticker. Done that
but it is not a done deal yet and he is still possibly selling to somebody else.
He could still show me but he said until we maybe go forward with a sale, hey...
were all a bit strange, eh!!!!
Thanks in advance

The VIN will not tell you if it's a true WS6. Only the RPO will. For a true WS6 it needs RPO codes 182, WS6, and WS9. What I can tell you is this:
2G2FV2 - Formula/TA 2 Door Coupe
2 - Manual Seatbelt w/ Dual Airbags
G- 5.7 346 CID (LS1)
9 - Used for internal checks at Manufacturing plant
2 - Canada (Where it's built)
137184 - Production number
I think we covered this in another thread back in Dec.

A bit of a difference of thought here?!
I have to say i have since heard from the seller and it does appear to be a genuine
WS6 but the two things that have me twitching are....... a ram air hood WITHOUT the
mesh grills in the front vents. (base model hood replaced and no vents to put in??
Also a factory air lid which is obviously NOT a WS6, that is to say it does not say "ram air"
on the top as it should... Why on earth should this be the case?
Just not sure as the sent pics show WS6 on the RPO sticker and also he has the window sticker.
I reckon i am going to let this one slide, as tempting as it is, as it is a very low miles SOM car.
I just have to be absolutely sure before any cash gets wired anywhere!!
I think a link is deserving of you guys for a look at!!?

looks like he de-screened it. why no idea.
The N2O kit through the air filter, never seen that.

I researched the VIN through Pontiacs Catalog. VIN number does not identify a WS6 only the RPO codes do. Unless someone knows something I'm missing
