I need to stop visiting threads of other people who are buying Vettes. It makes the Want stronger.

I want to buy a C6Z so badly. But I promised myself no more car purchases until the Focus RS is paid off, and I'm in a house. Preferably with a 2 car garage.

shiiit maybe I should. Learn how to control a squirrelly back end with less chance of breaking something in the drivetrain.

First manual car for me too.

Nice!

Get some snow tires. I drove my Cobra all winter with them and it was one of the best handling cars in the snow. There's a huge difference between all seasons and snows.

1999, 2 owners 75k miles, clean everything. only apparent mods are intake and borla s type cat back which I guess is loud enough for now. Cheap. NCM is insuring it for a significant amount more than I got it for.

I've got a handful of little mods for it. Skip shift eliminator, short shifter, and some ricer appearance crap.

And I don't think I'll ever not have a AWD daily driver now that I have experienced the amazeballs feeling of the AWD+Winter tires cheat code that is the RS.

Same here. I had snow tires for my Marauder for a few years and the amount of traction was awesome. Easily out accelerating many others including some awd cars I would see sliding around.

Thanks everyone!

I'm not to fond of the hatchback rear window coupes and c5z prices went up too much so this FRC ended up being the perfect candidate. In the months leading up to finding this FRC, I was sure I was going to spend at least a couple grand more on a higher miles trans am. I love Pontiac and all but I'm happier with this now. I was gonna be a little bitter about the solid axle thing if I ended up with an f-body lol.

The frc was the best handling American car ever made until 2001. It was lighter , stiffer , and z51 option was standard .
