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.

The nine speaker BOSE needs a little more bottem end, so I added a 12" Image Dynamics sub with a 400w Phoenix Gold amplifier.

Also got some sweet sounding whistle tips for the exhaust (ok kidding ;)
