My Roommate - Ben's WS6

I generally like to share shoots with you guys that I do, here's a quick one we did at a truck stop, literally took 5 mins

Turned out fairly decent though for an overcast day, the T3 seems to have trouble with some higher ISO numbers, since I didn't have a tripod out lol







Let me know whatcha think

Great picks again. Those later 4th gen Trans Ams, at least in my opinion, were the best cars Pontiac made in the modern era. They have aged very well. It's difficult to believe they are all 11 or more years old. They still don't look out of date.

I always liked the big ram air hoods and the way the rear fenders meshed so well with the spoiler......very sleek for its time. Great pics

Awesome picks Mitch, those Trans Ams are definitely one of the best looking cars ever made

Very clean! I am not usually a fan of the ragtop TA, but that's a nice one. I always loved the WS6 t-tops.

Thanks Joe! I love the look of them, I think the whole 4th F-bodies look great!

I agree, I think it loses some 'sporty' aspect of the car, but it still definitely looks nice!

I've been searching on autotrader.com and cars.com all winter and went on again last night, I noticed the number of WS6's for sale has gone way down. I guess it's the right time to be selling.

Indeed, I picked my non ws6 TA up right before the LSx binge on pontiacs. Still set me back a respectable 12k out the door. Thing is; most TAs were WS6 cars. Collector or no I wouldn't turn down a clean LS1 Formula or T/A. With cheap mods you could have a better than WS6 car for the difference you'd pay for a true WS6.

Same here, I've been told that more people like to sell though when they're putting their cars in storage so they don't have to pay storage, so I think I'll wait patiently this summer and start looking during fall again

That's true, either way Trans Ams or Firebirds are getting very difficult to find that aren't either completely built or super high miles.

I think that's going to be my game plan too.
