Should my friend sell his 1995 Corvette for a 2002 trans am WS6?
Hey all, I know a lot of Gm vehicles aren’t good and personally a fast sports muscle car is not my cup of tea however a friend of mine came into money and sold his house he’s got his eye on this 2002 Trans Am yellow WS6 6 speed. super clean needs nothing and it only has 36,000 miles. Runs and drives great, unmolested, and garage kept. Guys asking $26,000. That’s a almost 20 year old car I told him for that money buy a newer Toyota or Lexus but he says he only wants American and he’s gotta get a fast weekend toy so he can have fun. Is this a good idea or is he out of his mind? He also has a 95 corvette 6 speed he bought in 03 and a Cadillac XT5
Yeah, it's a bad choice for reliability and performance, but hey, if money falls into your lap, there are a lot of worse ways to spend it - at least he's not blowing it on cocaine, fast women and slow horses. He might let you borrow it!
That's what good low mile examples go for at the auctions and higher for Z28 and Trans-Am WS6 optioned 6spd cars. If it's a mint auction quality creampuff that's the money. Just watch any Barrett-Jackson or Mecum auctions. Wish I still had my '99 Trans-Am.
If you’ve already shown him the car fax & he’s still interested, let him waste his $26,000..
