2001 Pontiac Firebird V6 — i've owned my car for about 7 months now, previosly a '88 firebird, and i love it. i am a huge F-body fan and even though i drive a V6 and not the V8 i think my car is still very fast. i love the looks of it too. i can stare at my car all day and not be tired of it. it's sporty and fast looking.

Pros

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

Cons

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).

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.

Convertible so that your hair can blow, alot of fun to drive, beautiful car

Cons

doesn't handle in winter weather....at all.

Dreamcar — Great sportscar for the sportscar fan that wants a strong car, but not something that is too strong. Wineberry in color, with a black convertible top, ash cloth interior, 3.8 ltr V6 5 spd automatic, sports pedals, tinted windows (side & rear), tinted eyebrow across windshield, since disc JBL audio system, buckets seats...took corners the way a sportscar is supposed to!! It was alot of fun to own. I was sad to see Her go.

2001 Pontiac Firebird V6 Y87 — This is my daily driver firebird. It took me two years to find the perfect firebird and I went with this. It is a 2001 Pontiac Firebird with the sunset orange metallic paint, black leather, t-tops, monsoon sound system, and the Y87 performance package. Bought it with 44k miles in June 2008. I love these cars, if I had the money, I would buy another and keep both of em lol. My bird looks great, but performance is ok, it is a v6 tho. The build quality is ok, it has too much plastic in the inside and out, but what new car doesn't right. Great gas mileage for a sports car. Really fun to drive. Can be a hassle in the winter tho obviously. Let me kno if you have any questions or wanna talk cars---

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!
