Pros

It was a cool car and if you owned you were too!

Cons

Definately Gas Mileage.

35

This Is Overall A Pretty Great Car. — For likes it had a lot of power, Great looking car, handled great, and siunded great. For dislikes there are very poor gas mileage and it was automatic ( I much prefer manual) when it came time to change the tires they costed an arm and a leg.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Restored into a Drag Car.  Power is awesome, great looking car

Cons

hump in middle makes back seat action uncomfortable, but not impossible....

35

Great Car That I Restored — Simple, good looking car. RTS Radial Tuned Suspension, fancy name for this car has shocks and springs. Performance is great, great handling, interior was nice for the time and still looks good, but with all F Bodies, the dash rusts near window and roof supports. Since car was a Unibody, visible cracks started on roof from torque of new engine until we installed subframe connectors and 12 pt rollcage.

Ah Yeah! The Pontiac Firebird T-top — I am really excited over this vehicle because it is the most original vehicle my family has ever owned. Not only was it a red sports car, not only did have the awesome T-top, not only did it have that distinctive bird-like tail in the back but it had the famous Firebird insignia all-over-the-hood! This was definitely a car for men and an inspiration for all those dukes of hazzards that want to drive on the dusty roads. The sports car was so badass, my dad entered it in West Virginia Smokey and the Bandit type of race. Yes, this was around the time when those races were real: legal or not, it must have been exciting to own this car in its hey day. And I was told by my dad, he placed in this 'Fast and Furious' type of shindig. Way cool! It met its end, when my mom totaled it into a telephone pole. They need to remake this vehicle exactly as it was.

I Am Glad That I Deceided To Keep It Forever, Way Back In 1977 — Pontiac had an oiling problem with their 400 ci engines,, mine spun a bearing at 3000 rpm,,so I got a 455 for it,,and now it makes over 500 hp. After 33 yeears, I have to fix a couple of areas on the body, but it will be the same colour when I am done

for the classic muscle feeling

Cons

prone to rust

Great Car For An Enthusiast — looks good stock, definately good performance for the time period but not up to par for some of todays performance cars. some suspension work and upgrades to the motor and it would be a monstor on and off the track.

Cons

She can hold her own.

Fun Car To Drive Around, And I Love The Attention It Gets. — I cant find anything i dont like about it i was the one who put it back on the road. She is solid. body work starts this winter. The car doesn't get enough rpm's to spin tires, but it has a lot of tork. I put a really heavy duty suspension I built in back. the tires are glued to the road.

Pros

The fact that I could buy it in 1977, and still own it in 2010

Cons

jerks that steal pieces off the car, like the mirrors, and the center caps on the wheels

My Baby — Did Burt Reynolds look like he was having fun in "Smokey & the Bandit"? The cars were a blast to drive, and now that I have more power,it should be that much more fun to drive..My car came with the 400 cubic inch V8, but that engine broke, and now it has a 455 with over 500 hp. I have owned it for 33 years, and it needs a bit of body work, & the new headliner installed, and hopefully, that will all be done, early in 2011 My son helped me get the car running again, this summer, and I have no intention of selling it. He would be disappointed , after all his hard work, if he did not become the heir to this car The body style was loved by a lot of people and it survived from 1970-1981. A lot of these cars were Trans Ams, but mine is a Formula,so that makes it more rare,and at present, it has 36705 miles on it.Even the belts and hoses are original.
