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.

Beautiful TA! Fill up on gas while you can. Here in Ohio it just jumped to $3.75 for regular and we use premium.
