1997 Pontiac Firebird

Like the 1997 Camaro, the Pontiac Firebird represented the last of the style first revamped in 1993. It runs like the muscle car it is: gas inefficiently, but fun. GM's Series II 3800 V6 has pickup like a much bigger engine, making for an ever-exciting ride. The ultimate in Firebird power, the Trans Am has an LT1 V8 engine, providing much extra zip.

New in 1997 are daytime running lights and a redesigned dashboard. The interior itself is anything but spacious. While drivers may enjoy the reclining, sporty feel to their seat, passengers in the front and practically non-existent back seats may struggle a bit to find comfortable places for their legs.

The Firebird is great fun to drive and at a reasonable price.
