I live in Southern California and the smog laws and cops are huge dicks. I really would love the tran-am for the mods and rarity of the color options but I have always wanted a stock all black SS to cruise in. what would you guys do?
personally i would go with the stock ss, modding is most of the fun with these cars!
ya thats what I was thinking too. I miss working on a car. Plus I don't think I would go too crazy. Just the basics and a good cam and valve train. And most likely a new stall but nothing too crazy.
But on the other hand I am going back to school at 25 and should really just focus on school and not modding my car. I am the type that obsess over my cars and research the crap out of every mod. I remember I was spending so much money and time on my 70 El Camino at the speed shop I started working there lol.
Personally I think you're insane for considering a black SS over a SOM WS6, the rarity factor alone should be enough. HOWEVER, since tastes vary and you've always wanted a black SS then just go with the first car you picture yourself in 6 months from now.
ya I love the SOM cars but I am more of a Camaro guy something about the pop up head lights I never liked you know. During the day though those Tran-ams look sweet. I had a 94 Z28 a few years ago (well actually I still kinda "own" it but my buddy has it) and when the newer body style aka headlights came out I wanted to switch to the LS1 and newer headlights. 21k miles too sounds so sweet dont think I have even bought a car with less than 50k on it lol
get the SOM TA. He's a great guy and takes amazing care of his car. Trust me and come hangout at the Western section on ls1tech.
We have meets every weekend, come out and PM me for info. I know you wont be dissapointed with the SOM too.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Ya I talked to him on the phone real nice guy, knows his **** too. I just keeping thinking that I might get sick of the SOM color and wished I bought a black SS. I am still waiting on my damn settlement check which should be here in a few weeks so I guess I got some time to think about it that is if either are availble then.
I work for an insurance company....SS vs Z28 means nothing to them. The just go by the VIN code for the engine. Now if you have an appraised stated value policy, that's a different story.
By the way, buy the Camaro....modded cars, no matter how much an owner may claim its never been to the track, run hard, etc. is full of it. With all respect to the T/A owner, no one spends tons of coin on mods to just cruise around town at a leisurely pace. I'm sure they are both nice cars, but I would buy the stock one and have fun doing the mods you want and nothing you don't want. Just my opinion.
