    Well since the 2nd day i bought my camaro ive been regreting it. Ive since then been on the lookout for a cheap ls1 or lt1 camaro or TA, 6 speed that was in decent shape.... The other day i was out looking at a new GTO for my brother and i spotted a clean looking TA a dealership down. I drove over and test drove it and i havnt stopped thinking about it. Its a 97 TA, 6 speed, lt1 with 90k on the ticker, new clutch, decent tires, leather interior, black paint with a few white paint marks on the front that can be buffed out and a stress crack on the back bumper on the top of it. I talked him down to 7200 without even bartering with him so im pretty sure i can get him down in the 6's easily.

    Im thinking of trading my 99, 5 speed, v6 with 115k on it, bad clutch, and a crap load of scratches and one pretty good ding above the gas door for this car along with probably a grand on top. What do you think?

    I think you're never gonna finish your Blazer anyways so it doesn't matter how much it sets you back. :p:

    Have you checked into the insurence part of it ??? Yes, a V6 isn't nowhere near as fun as a V8, but how much more will the insurence cost ???

    I hear ya. Those T/ A's are cool. I kind of like the WS6 with the Ram Air hood [​IMG], but those T/A's are still pretty kewl.

    I drive a Firebird, which is essentially a T/A and I love it. Go for it!
