    ***October COTM......97ramsst***

    Thanks to everyone that voted for me.....even though my car had a pole growing out the roof!


    I have owned 19 F-Bodies over the years, but this SOM WS6 is very special to me. I looked for this car for about 18 months before I found it. Thanks to the previous owner (Candy Hendricks) it was in impeccable condition when I got it, but it has came a long long way since then. I am often asked how much I have in it...and to be honest I dont know. But I built the car with the intention of building the best car I could...so there is nothing but the best on it. I didn't care about having the fastest WS6 around, but rather I wanted to build what was the cleanest and nicest car I could build. That's what I have tried to do...and with the exception of the window tinting no one else has ever turned a wrench on the car except me and I am very proud of that. Here is the run down on the car:

    2002 Trans Am WS6 #8497
    Sunset Orange Metallic
    Tires and Wheels: CCW 505As and BFG KDWs
    (19x10s & 275/30/19s - front)
    (19x11s & 295/35/19s - rear)

    Suspension: Strano Springs, KYB AGX Shocks, BMR LCAs (chrome), BMR PRB (Chrome), Hotchkiss STB (chrome), Custom Chromed Billet Bump Stops, White Powder Coated Sway Bars, Red Energy Suspension Bushings and a TA Performance Cover

    Engine Mods: Corsa Cat-Back, All Chrome and Polished Covers and Caps Possible, Custom SOM FRCs, Turn One PS Pump and Pulley, FAST TB, MTI Clear Lid, MSD Wires, 98 Water Pump (removable pulley), & chromed pulleys, VCs, PS pump and alternator brackets, throttle cable bracket, tensioner, AC and ABS brackets and I am sure some more stuff I am forgetting

    Interior Mods: Embroidered Headrests, Embroidered Mats, Chrome Vent Rings, Polished MBA AC & Headlight Knobs, Silver Gauge Overlays, XM

    Appearance Mods: !Moldings, !Wires, !Hood Latch Cable, !Air, Stainless "Trans AM", Front Bird, and Pontiac overlays, SOM Calipers with Black Powder Coated D&S Rotors, 20% Tint, Underhood mirrors, Mirrored Stainless Air Dam, SOM Bumper Support, Chrome Hood Latch, hood latch bracket, safety catch, latch, latch support, bumper support brace, headlight brackets, hood hinges, door strikers and pins, rear hatch latch and I am sure a lot of other stuff I am forgetting....



    This is what the car looked like when I bought it:


    Now for some pictures of it now....and thanks again for those that voted for me!


























    Thanks for looking!

    Shit man , you say you did all the mods your self ? You should be proud . That is one of the best (cleanest) Trans Am's I've seen on here. Glad you knew when to stop. Its not over done , just very very clean . Props !
