'91 Firebird, Absolutley A Friends Car — My car is almost considered a classic in 2011. I like the way it rides because it is soo smooth and most of the time you cant really tell if your goin 25 or 75. And when you spped up to pass another car, you can hear the engine really rem and it just sounds so cool. The performance is wonderful, except that it pulls a little to the left when braking. You can hardly tell if you are accelerating and slowing down. The gas is a little spendy though but we get a lot of miles in a tank like 246, but it sorta guzzles gas. Yes, I would reccomend this car because some of my friends are a little weird and this car is perfect for them.

An Affordable Performer. — It handles very well in the corners, and stops on a dime. The seats are comfortable and everything is laid out nice and easy to reach. When the t-tops are out, driving around town is cool.

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 !!

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.

Awesome car, Fast, Sleek, and all around amazing.

Cons

None really. I have absolutely no problems with this car.

Awesome!! — This is definitly a car to have and for the price you can find them it is well worth it. It sounds great both the v6 and v8 models sound awesome. It looks ultra sleek, and even sitting still looks fast. The acceleration on both the v6 and v8 models is out of this world. the v8 model will do a quarter mile in 13 seconds stock. The braking is quality. It handles better than most sports cars that i have driven. The build quality is amazing and easy to upgrade. Im a big fan of the style and the interior can look very very sleek. This car is great and i have a blast in it every day.

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.

very fast, musclecar look and shape

Cons

straight up speedster no luxuries, dangerous if you can't control it

Built For Speed — very fast car with a beautiful engine, was too fast i ended up crashing it, but it was worth the ride. body quality is good i like the exterior but interior was a bit shabby, handling was decent but as its rear wheel drive lacking a bit, gas was horrible had a 5.1 litre engine and the way i drove you could watch it go down, still though if you can afford it a fun car to enjoy as long as you know how to drive it.
