You. Maybe you stated something earlier in the thread about a performance build and I missed it, because i'm not going to read 6 pages of junk. Just not sure where you got $2600 from. If you would looked at the site first, you would have seen the prices. Correct me if I am wrong.
The W-body is a fantastic platform IF...
1.) You live where they don't salt the roads
2.) You can rebuild/repair a 4t65e
I met both those criteria and still sold the car. Fact is, people are people and sometimes just want something new and different.
Rust is a cancer for any car/truck or whatever... Unless it's made of plastic and aluminum. Then you can worry about getting hit and the car crumpling into you, still inside.
There are plenty of other platforms that all have their own drawbacks, it all depends on what you're willing to put up with.
Might as well go big, you're going home at the end of the day regardless.

Expert at being gay.
If you get to the rear strut buckets soon enough it's really easy to hammer a 2x4 and a 1x4 below the package tray above the strut mount to carry the load as the seam slowly rusts away.
My 97 only had the inboard section still holding it to the car but all of the cars weight went up into the c-pillar via the package Shelf
