The reason I haven't been around much

Finally found the car I've been looking for. I've wanted one of these since I sat in one on the dealership show room floor. I couldn't find one in white, but this baby showed up near me for a good price and in great shape.

1998 Trans Am WS6
104xxx
6 spd
Ebony interior
Nitto's on the rear
Magnaflow
Some sort of short tube headers.

I have added
SLP Lid
SLP Skit shift
Pro 5.0 Short shifter

After having the car for 2 months, she started to leak a bit of coolant only to discover the driver freeze plug was leaking. Talk about a pain in the ***. But she back up and running fine, will just need a power steering pump soon. No big deal. Here are some picture of Lana.









I've removed the shitty unit that came in the car for a decent alpine unit.




And my ladies together.

Re: The reason I haven't been around much

Around town, they are less than 10. I leave the car in 1st or 2nd because I like the way the exhaust sounds. Plus it gets people attention. lol

On the highway doing 80mph the rpms will sit at about 1800rpms So it'll get 24ish mpgs if I can keep my foot out of it.

I paid the guy and told him to ship them on a monday. Monday came and went and I didn't hea anything. He got a hold of me the next day and said he couldn't find the front coils, only the rears. A few days later, he refunded my money. It pissed me off and made me so fustrated that I decided that I wanted a project with more readily available parts.

If I like the way the shoguns look next week, I'll come up with a plan to lower it a little bit. But definitely won't be slammed

Re: The reason I haven't been around much

Hopefully you drive better than 99% of Trans Am and Camaro owners.
Seriously, they're annoying as mosquitoes around here.

Nice car when they have a decent owner, haha

Where do you live in Missouri? That kinda looks like my sister's college town

it's a black Trans Am, of course you're in a college town, lol.

And I'm thinking UCM in Warrensburg, MO. It was just a shot in the dark.

My great-uncle had a super-clean black one like this in KC that he sold a while ago, though I doubt you somehow ended up with his, lol

Re: The reason I haven't been around much

This was a St.Louis car for 90% of it's life, then went to southern MO. I doubt it. I've had a few people that say "That looks like my old car!" It's a stock bodies WS6, they look alike haha.

There are a lot of black ones, but not many I've seen are in the shape mine is.

Re: The reason I haven't been around much

Absolutely beautiful day out. So I decided to go a cruise. Gave Lana a good wipe down, not a wash, and hit the road. Here are a few pics I took. Not sure why the camera on my phone made the pictures like this, but oh well.

Re: The reason I haven't been around much

Yes it has. I just bought some long tube headers and offroad Y pipe. I'll be having my buddy put those on along with removing the air/egr system that's on the car.

Car will get to see the road all weekend for my buddies weekend. So it'll be low 90s all weekend so it'll be great to keep the tops off.

Re: The reason I haven't been around much

Long story behind the wheels.

TL;DR the seller sent replica wheels and not OEM wheels like I wanted. And the wheels are too big for me. So they are for sale, have another set in mind. Will post up when the brakes and wheels are mounted.

Thank for the compliment sir. Picked up the brakes for $700 shipped. Brand new. Couldn't pass them up.

Well I sold off my civic. Bought myself a 2014 Ram Hemi Big Horn. 3 miles on it when I drove it off the lot.
