That WS6 can't be a 03. The f-bodies discontinued in 02.

Its quicker than that. I'm quite sure it ran mid low 14s in mags and some users have squeezed high 13 out of em'.
Road and Track has the quarter mile at 14.8 @ 96.8 mph, and other magazines are the same. The fastest I've personally seen one run at the track was a 14.7 @ 97ish. They seem to be a tad slower than a stock SRT-4, and those run mid 14'* stock.

Back on topic though, finding a well-rounded car that is quick yet practical *cough* SSEi *cough*, would probably be a better choice than going for an all out sports car at your age.

I am buying another Bonneville here 'fore long, but no good ones are for sale around here. I found my dream car the other night (1997 SSEi, fully loaded, silver/grey) for $4000 in perfect condition, but I'm not going to Illinois for a car. I just want the Cobalt because I like the look of the car, and here they are dependable if treated right, and I want a 5 speed. I also like the Firebird because it is in mint condition and I want the CD 7band equalizer.

I should be more specific. Acura Intetgras suck. New TL'* do run low 14'*@ 94-97mph. But a sh*^ty Integra ain't a TL.
