Fun To Drive, Faster Than Your Average Automobile. — It's just like any other third gen, the uni-body was bent from factory, it creaks and feels loose. It's got some pretty nice low end power but the 305 isn't a very powerful engine to start off with so it falls short in higher speeds. Gas mileage is pretty rough anywhere from 14-15mpg in city with lots of stop and go, and peaking at 23-24mpg on highway being very gentle with the throttle. The brakes feel pretty soft but a good pair of performance pads might remedy this.

Awesome Sportscar — Just bought this car for only $650! Actually got two cars for that price but I only kept this one. It still needs some work but it has about $1200 worth of engine mods on it already. Already done a few things to it, just needs some body work, interior work and its good to go.

I Love These Cars, Throughtout The Life Of The Trans Am, They Have Made Their Mark On History — I bought this car in a field where it had been sitting for 6 years. All I needed to do was change the plug wires and a fresh carb. The car runs excellent now, and I will be doing all of the body work myself

Buy It! — the only thing about the car that i dislike, is its not german. otherwise this car is awesome, runs perfect and highly maintained. annnnd its for sale, so buy it! Its got tons of torque, its very fun to drive, everyones gotta see your car when your driving down the road. originally it didnt run when i bought it, and it looked horrible. but iv done a ton to it and it now runs flawlessly. it also looks great, iv done a lot of work to it. this car also handles amazingly well, and sounds awesome. it also has a nice sound system, and only 54k original miles.

Info On The Car — The body design on this car is amazing although the engine doesn't make up for it, The hood on the car has the off set intake with the bird. The hood was originally designed for turbo from the manufacturer but the idea was abolished at last minute.

One Fine Ride. — My car has over 200,000 miles on it and it's still the most reliable daily driver I've ever owned. I get in and drive it to work every day without a glitch. I have had to do a few repairs, but nothing out of the ordinary for a car this age.
