1998 Trans Am WS6 and Mullet Newds (Finally a reason to click on my thread)
 
The time has come and the bird is home!

1998 T/A WS6
LS1 m6
Black/Black
T-Tops
103,xxx
Short tube headers
high flow cats
Nitto Street radials in the rear

That's right bitches. She is here and I'm back in a pontiac.

Started with this

Then got stuck behind this crap for a half hour.

Bastard left the car with absolutely zero gas. Was below the E. I stepped out of the car and a guy came up to me. "Dude, that is a beautiful WS6 man." These do get quite a bit of attention, especially in black.

And finally she is home. Ignore the terrible head unit. That will be out of there soon.

Will get better pictures this week, you know, when the sun is out. Buddy is sending my pictures he took, especially ones from underhood. Will have those up tonight.

Only complaints I have is the shifter looks like a crooked dildo. Headunits looks like a ngga(not a good thing), the exhaust kinda looks weird because its hanging so low, as in, too much of it exposed or something.

Annoyed that TA's have extreme 4x4 status from factory lol.

tipnitty 02-11-2013 05:37 PM

I will be buying a different shift knob, and debating short shifter. Not the biggest fan of way it shifts, but I'll get used to it.

CD player sucks, it a touch screen planet audio. I'll sell it, or if no one wants it, it will met my 45.

The exhaust is my top priority. There is an exhaust leak and I'm not the biggest fan of the way the exhaust exits. I know for sure, I want to put dumps on the car. That may change, who knows.

It does sit a little high, but for now, I'm fine with it. I just want to learn the car, then maybe a set of eibach's. I like the way eibach's sit.

TDavis 02-11-2013 06:03 PM

Indeed the Eibach makes a lovely drop for the TA's. Was looking up TA's with a Eibach drop.

This one makes me jizz.

Yup, that's probably what i'll go with. They are cheap enough of a mod and the OEM struts will work fine with them.

TDavis 02-11-2013 06:06 PM

BTW are you getting HIDs for these too or keeping it OEM?

Also probably just me being picky about my bulbs in my car but your front turn signals look like they need to be replaced, they're not that amber. I think all the coating has been burnt off.

locoman99 02-11-2013 06:10 PM

Congratulations on the new car sam, it looks beautiful. I know you must have been dying inside the last few years tooling around in that other car...for that alone you deserve this car. Cant wait to see what u are doing to her and glad to see one of these cars in good hands.

They don't look very amber, you're right. I'll replace those soon. I plan on going HID's in the fog lights. But not in the head lights. Love how these cars look evil when they parking lights and fogs are on.

Thank you sir. Yeah the move from a T/A to a honda was a difficult one, but a necessary one. But the move from the honda to the m6 T/A, amazing different in the cars. She is in very good hands :)

Looks pretty nice Tip!!! I'm only a couple hours away, I can come down and "watch over" it for you if you're ever out of town :heh:

tipnitty 02-11-2013 07:22 PM

Thanks coop, I'll be sure too keep that in mind if she needs a baby sitter. Hopefully you know how to drive a stick with power. If now, sik's mom could teach you. lol

bricooper78 02-11-2013 07:25 PM

Oh yes, the purple Camaro is a beast, and another buddy of mine had a WS6 for a VERY short time. think it was sold with a skidmark in the seat lol

Fuggin sweet man! Congrats on the new ride and yeah I'm definitely jealous. Those cars just look so awsome stock. Of course there's do much you can do to make it better, but for a factory car just stunning IMO.

There is a 95 Camaro in a garage that I keep holding off on buying, 70K miles, it's built... was the badass of the town back in the day. I was so shocked by its appearance, I didn't even think to take pics of it. I has no garage, I can't buy it. yet. Wanted that car for 17 years now... /thread whoring (ya right lol )

Nice. Spark plug #8 is a pain ;)

Have fun in snow!

shiwnath 02-11-2013 08:21 PM

That's sexy. I always loved the Firebird over the Camaro when it came to F-Bodies. I hope to see a cool build on this thing some day, but I guess it depends on your budget.

bricooper78 02-11-2013 08:21 PM

B'ah... ya negative nancy lol he's got a fwd for the ****z weathers! he's fine!

TruGreenGAGT 02-11-2013 08:28 PM
