Pontiac Ta Ws6 — Love the car, fast, good gas mileage. Handles great. By far the fastest car I have ever owned. Would like to have had this car when I was a kid back in high school. It's a dream to drive around.

Stupid fast. Crazy handling.

Cons

Seats were not that comfortable. Not built for a tall person like me to wear a hat or get out of.

Great Car! Would Definitely Recommend People To At Least Drive A Trans Am Once In Their Lifetime. — I loved the car, but the back seats were just horrible to sit in. You had no leg room and if you rode in them for long periods of time, your knees would start to hurt. The front seats were alright, but not the best. The car did have a lot of cargo room though, you could fit a whole sub with amp in it and it would fit perfectly. The handling was amazing, i went around a sharp 90 degree corner at 55 mph and it didnt even try to go in the ditch. The acceleration was great too! It could have used a shift kit because shifts were not firm, more laggy. We got around 17 to 18 mpg estimated. It was a joy to drive this car though! You couldnt drive it with a frown on your face!

Kickass — Freakin Awesome! The thing has plenty of power, it has great style, and for a muscle car it gets pretty good mileage....not that that is a problem. Have a few more things that i want to do to make it look original, otherwise the car is gonna be a weekend warrior until i save enough for a flat out horsepower machine.
