General LSX Automobile Discussion - Is this car worth it?

They are selling a 1998 Trans Am WS6 white with about 160,000 miles on it. The interior is perfect while the exterior isnt. The exterior has a passenger broken fender, a crack on the windshield, and just a ding on the quarter panel. They are asking 5,000 for it. Is this a good deal?

eh.....id pass on that one.. thats just me though
01-08-2007, 04:34 PM
thats not bad the miles would be the only thing to stear me away from it

I would prolly pass, for a couple grand more you can get something with way less miles
01-08-2007, 04:41 PM
Yeah, that's a lot of mileage

got 136K miles and my car is cammed, and runs great, doesnt burn oil, decent gas mileage, and runs like a raped ape.
5K is a good deal! Motor probably last you a while actually.
Whats the big deal..lets say that motor goes out..then you can get a bad ass BRAND NEW LME motor for 4K. Have a 450rwhp+ for 9000 bucks

plus the windshield youll need to eventually get fixed, and a broken fender.. unless you enjoy driving in janky cars

Well if you plan on doing alot of mods then it probably wouldn't be a bad deal. Think about it just do a 347 forged rotating assembly, heads and cam package and you've got a freshened up motor.

I'd go for it. Like stated, worst thing is you have to rebuild the motor or get a new one. I'd take it just because it's cheap. If you can fix most the stuff yourself then who cares. The fender is easy to change out. Track down a white one. Or worst case get it painted(white is cheap to paint). The windsheild, wait for a month or 2 and tell the insurance company it got a rock. And lastly, the dent. a paintless dent guy could take it out for $30. If the inside is nice but the outside needs a little TLC snatch it up. Keep it outta the trailer parks or junk yards for god's sake. ~Cole~

i bought a ws6 for just a couple grand more 13k and had only 50k miles on it. the body and interior (with the exception of the ash tray lid ) was perfect. A guy on okgmp.com sold one for about 7k with a new paint job. And that car was a stout car. Seen the car in person. you can find a better deal.
