About “The WS6”

This is a 1997 WS.6 Trans Am. I bought this car after visiting it on the way to the Chicago Auto Show in 2006. The car is loaded with all options. As you can see, it is black, with t-tops and the original WS.6 Rims. The 17" Polished Aluminum Rims wrapped in 255/45/17ZR BF Goodwrech G-Force Tires.

About “2007GT”

My new 2007 Premium Edition Mustang GT
After finding out that the mustang assembly line was down for retooling for the 2008 models I had to really look hard to find this car with all the options I wanted. I had planned on getting basically this car but without the rear spoiler and hood scoop as I had other plans for those areas but I think I will leave them on for a while. So far the car has been a blast and the 4.10 gears really are worth it. I have to wash the car about every three days but I really loved the black on black.
