I've always liked classic muscle cars, and the 2001 model is significantly cheaper than the 2002 final year model with roughly the same specs and performance.

I Love It — its a t-top car.. It performs very well and handling is absolutly amazing, I only drive the car on weekends so it is relativly cheap to maintain. The car is a blast to drive with 415 horse power and 400lb/ft of tourqe at the wheels

I'll Never Sell Her. If I Do, I'll Just Buy Another One. — Great looking car with breathtaking acceleration, even by today's standards!! Even before all the mods, the car was a BLAST to hop in and just take off driving. On the back roads, or blasting up the on ramp, she never failed to make me smile. Probably why I still own her.

nothing i could think of

The T/a — ls1 motor with slp intake lid, pacesetter off road headers complete with a flowmaster muffler. about 350 hp i am guessing. has drilled and sloted rotors for stopping power. 0-60 in about 4.8 seconds. gets pretty good fuel mileage. beautiful looking car. and is a blast to drive. what more do you want.lol

Pros

LS1 Engine, T-Tops. Has Torque. Has Horsepower. Looks beautiful. Great aftermarket. Has pedigree. Good on gas IMO.

Cons

I picked the baseline Trans Am. So it has the worst 10 bolt rear from Pontiac of that timeline that also only has 2.73's, I don't have some appearance enhancement like the WS6 would, yet. Minor stuff trust me. You save money on getting a baseline and modding it to be better then a WS6 anyway, which is why I didn't look hard enough for a reasonable WS6.

The F-body Lives — I love my car, simple as that. It comes stock with a 310 HP, 346 CI LS1 V8. You could choose either an automatic 4-speed (A4), or a standard (manual) 6-speed transmission. To me it has become an addiction to take the T-Tops off every chance I can, but some just like to look up and be able to see the sky through the T-Tops. And I don't agree with most people when they say I have bad gas mileage, I use mine daily unfortunately but think I get pretty good gas mileage. This car is also definitely fun to drive, cruise, and definitely race with.

'01 Trans Am Review — Ridiculous Torque, Has A Very Angry Look To It, Straight Pipes Sound Nasty, LS1 Pretty Much Speaks For Itself, Gas Mileage Sucks (about 10) But I'd Rather Fill Up A Lot And Have Some Muscle Under My Hood, Excellent Build Quality, Good Brakes, Handles Excellent For A RWD V8 Car, 4-Bangers and V-6 Cars Dont Even Try, I Dont Care How Big Your Turbo Is, I've Got American Muscle. Let's Run.
