I would not buy a '99 again, due to the 60,000 mile ETM replacement problem; if you can get a '98 in good shape, it's worth looking at.
That being said, I like everything else about the '99 at standard speeds, and love it when I have to get waaay over 140 mph. Handles really well with the squad car package; results may vary with non-police models.

What is 60,000 mile ETM replacement problem?

The throttle body's go bad at about 60,000 miles.It cost about $1200,00 to replace it.
