Imo, the TT 04 GTO sounds like it would be fun, fastest and has the lowest miles so it would be my choice but I would try to knock atleast a couple grand off that price tag!!!

i have built a few of these cars & bought a few that had close to what i wanted done and added the parts i wanted to finish it the way i wanted it.
so either way can work out....

if the motors is built & making power,then you need a trans to handle that power....and then you need the rear end upgraded & suspension work with tires.the list goes on & on.....

the list of cars you gave.... is not specific enough for me.

2004 GTO twin turbo with only 40k miles Manuel trans./19k
2005 GTO Stock 66k miles Manuel trans./15k
2002 trans am WS.6 exhaust/intake 118k miles automatic trans./12k
1998 C5 corvette stock 80k miles automatic trans./16k
2000 c5 corvette stock 75k miles standard trans./15k

do you want an auto or manual?
do you want to go fast in a straight line or have a car that handles?
do you want a daily driver or a weekend warrior?

because what i like in that list, might not work for you.

just somethings to think about.......good luck!

when were the TT done at what mileage? it will need an upgraded clutch & trans & rear end if not done allready to match the RWHP.
depending on if it has what i mentioned above & the car is in good shape that price could be fair,hard to say with out seeing it & knowing what else is done to it? does an older gent have it or a younger guy? his or hers only car or no?????
might be a headache for a DD....


2005 GTO Stock 66k miles Manuel trans./15k
this price sounds like a starting point if its a clean 1 owner?


2002 trans am WS.6 exhaust/intake 118k miles automatic trans./12k
not interested,to many miles for the price asked.....but thats just me,might be cleaner than you think.you have to talk & ask all the right questions...


1998 C5 corvette stock 80k miles automatic trans./16k
might be worth talking to the owner,you never know how bad they need to get rid of it....


2000 c5 corvette stock 75k miles standard trans./15k
DING...DING...DING...
check this one out.

it is really hard to say with out seeing the cars mentioned & knowing more info on them.....
when you ad RWHP you need to upgrade the trans & rear end or start breaking stuff........
i would start here....2005 gto & the 2000 c5...but thats me & you are you,spend your money wisely.ask alot of ??????????????????s.reciepts for work done?

have you been in the vehicle for sale section?
there are a couple deals in there i would check out if i was in the market.

good luck! :chug:
