Phil's Firebird — I love everything about this car. The V6 puts out a suprising amount of power and gets decent mileage. Very fun car, expecially with t-tops. Great performance aftermarket with a wide variety of options. My friends don't like it when they have to sit in the backseat, but I bought this car for me, not my friends. Would reccommend this car to anyone.

Not many around, everywhere you go you turn heads and jaws drop

Cons

Parts can be hard to find and expensive depending what they are

A Badass Piece Of History — 0-60 in 5 seconds for a 11 year old car isn't bad, handling for a rear wheel drive muscle car is amazing. Hasn't needed any real repairs since Ive owned it, have done mods to make it even more fun to drive. Better yet, nothing like 400 hp and still getting 30 mpg on the highway lol

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons

High replacement parts, small engine.

Good Enough, But The Trans Am Is More Woth Your While. — Performance is decent for V6. Good shift timing. Build is solid though paint is fading. Power seat and windows are junk in most GMs. Interior is charcoal leather. Automatics should get a shift boot. Looks best with ground effects. Decent millage even though the LS1 is as good. Maintenence is somewhat pricey. Fun factor-HELL YEAH! TTOPS!

2000 Pontiac Firebird 3.8l — Wiring/electrical problems and cheap plastic crap for interior... thanks GM.... Overall, this car is sooo fun to drive and whip around, although the v6 is slightly underpowered. General Maintenance (GM) isn't required much believe it or not. Running synthetic oil, fresh plugs, gas, tires and brakes (which get used alot by me) are almost all you need to have fun, get there in style, and most important fast!! ;*)

The LS1!! Performance, looks, ease of ownership, enthusiast market, they don't make them any more.

Cons

Interior plastics are cheap looking, not much room for more than 2 people.

Who Wants A V8 Muscle Car? — 130,000 miles and still going strong! If it wasn't for $4 gas, I would never consider getting rid of it. Fun to drive, great looking and not too many on the road. Lots of aftermarket parts to customize it to your liking. Surprisingly durable (unless you drag race it all the time or something).

Great looking car. The seat are pretty comfortable, drove 4 hrs non stop without any problems.

Cons

Fuel mileage of course, but you don't buy this car for the mpg.

I Would Definitely Recommend This Car. Sleek, Smooth, And Beautiful. — The look of this car is beautiful. The inside is nice for a 14 year old car. There are no rattles or any problems. The t-tops and rear hatch seals don't leak, this seems to be a problem area for these types of cars. The seats are still fairly comfortable. The performance is awesome. I haven't been to the track or gotten it dynoed, but was planning on doing both.

Pros

For the Price I bought it at everything worked except for the drivers windo but that has been fixed. Even the T-tops dont leak!

Cons

It could use a bit more power. And a CD/MP3 player wouldent hurt either.

A Good Buy — I wont lie it is a V6 so its not the fastest thing out there. But for a first running car and at around 2850 dollars it was a pretty damn good find. It handles great I got new tires and rear brakes for it in Aprill. And though it may not be fast it looks great and it has a great exhaust note from the aftermarket pipes.

Tons Of Fun! — Another great car, plenty of power, great handling, predictable, and sexy. T-tops are tons of fun. Tire smoking is not a problem, even with an automatic. Top speeds of 130-140 mph are no problem for this beast. LS1 is the best.
