Thoughts — This is my first Firebird, first convertible too!! 2nd owner, 70,000 original motor. All stock un molested. List of mods I plan on doing in order. New Pioneer sound system New paint, stock color New soft top New aftermarket exhaust Complete suspension mods New tires and rims A super charged, liquid inter-cooled 350 TPI That's it not really to much. just bring it up to date a little.

I Love This Car — this car is a beast...so powerful and fast, i would def recommend it to others because it is pretty fun. The only problem is that it uses lots gas because of its v8 engine otherwise it is a pretty nice ride

A Daily Driver That Is Fun To Drive And Tune. — It's my first car I built and tuned. I plan on keeping it a daily driver until I'm out of school. I've spent a lot of hours driving and tuning and have learned a lot from it. This car has served its purpose and plan on doing some more tuning later.

The Only New Car I've Ever Owned... Wouldn't Trade It For Anything. — I bought my car new in May 1990 and remain its sole owner/driver. It was my primary car until 1997/1998, where I bought a truck and removed it from the road (difficult - no impossible - to navigate the western PA winter roads). The car has been sitting under a cover in my garage for the past 12-13 years - only about 75,000 mi. I pulled it out about 3 years ago and it fired up almost immediately. I let it idle to get some temp in the engine, shut it down, washed it, and pulled her back into storage. It is my intention to fix the small items (left headlight won't retract, pass door outside handle, hood cylinders need replaced (hood won't remain up unassisted), hood release mechanism needs fixed, want to replace all hoses, plugs, check brakes/fluid, and flush coolant and tranny fluid). Now that I have approached middle age (lol), I intend to only use her for casual driving on nice days. Can't wait fort that first drive !!

Rare Car — got this car during the cash for clunkers program. if you are looking for a great performance vehicle the best option is to find a stick shift trans am for two reasons one it provides a more enjoyable driving experience. two with a stick if you are inclined to upgrade you can replace it with a 6speed out of a 1993-2002 trans am or camaro the only bad thing with these cars is the paint has issues but after almost 20 years what do you expect.

91 V6 Firebird — This car did what it was meant to do. Have ok performance, while saving some fuel, (and buy in price.) It was miserable in any thing but dry roads, and reliability was an issue as were all 3rd gen F-bodies. Paint was an issue as well. It was relatively comfy, but it was in need of more room. It had enough squeaks and rattles to make even the most sane person crazy though, even after 10 minutes of driving.

A Red Sporty Car I Will Never Forget — Runs good and everything, the braking was smooth and so was the handling it was made just for me. No major plms with the car. Inside and outside of the body is red and sharp. the car has high mileage when i sold it but and it was taken care of.

She's A Dirty Bird — I've owned this car for almost 5 years now. It was stored for the 1st 3 seasons.very rare body style,last of the 3rd gens.now a piece of auto history.This 305's still got some sac left in it. Next time around i probably won't buy one with so many power acc though. After 18 years of New England weather there aren't too many buttons that work anymore.
