Ls1 — Its a nice powerful car with amazing looks. Gm did a awesone job at making the 4th f bodys. Its a true mustang killer! With over 300hp stock and very little to be done to make it to 400hp. ls1 was touched by the hand of god.

My "mid-life Crisis" Car! — I've only had this car for a couple of months, but so far I love it. It takes some getting used to, and there are a few tricks to learn to be able to see around the blind spots and keep the back from sliding on the turns. I certainly wouldn't let my 20 year old son drive it, but for a more experienced driver who has finally earned her right to have a "sports car", this car rocks!

Your Basic Firebird — great car for yourself or one other but not a family car, cant carry much, there is a back seat but its useless other then a few groceries, but its a great car for just riding around and relaxing in.

Consistantly inches out SRT-8's from a 50 roll on the freeway. FACT.

Cons

Rear ends ain't cheap!

Performance You Love From A Brand You Don't Anymore. — Great way to get from point A to point B, hastily if neccessary. Makes you want to rock a mullet and some 80's hair metal with the t-tops off. Easiest way to get 320+ horsepower under your right foot for under 10 grand.

Little Red Bird — First off this thing is the sexiest thing for the money. I love how it looks and with the T-top its a babe magnet and even 70 year old women agree with me. The car also preforms well, it handles really well I just wish it had more power to go with its capable chassis.

Great acceleration and top speed, perfect for leaving people in the dust.

Light back-end causing loss of control easy.

Great Car With Lots Of Power. — Great car had it for almost 3 years now and the only thing that is a flaw is the light rearend, but that can be fixed with a rear-mounted turbo! Great to drive and only about 17k with low miles! Tint on black is sexy so everyone knows by the way! Adding cross-drilled rotors and performance brakes would be first to do though because then you can stop the beast whenever you need(a.k.a. 5-0).
