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.

Pros

Fun tons of potntial power

Cons

Small interior, not alot of room

35

Trans Am Convertible — Love it since I bought it. A modern day muscle car. Very confortable while driving and can feel every bit of horsepower. Potentially tons of power with 310 stock(not the WS6) already have it to around 400. Great design and body lines, not just one contour like cameros.

Pontiac is driving excitement

Cons

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

Cons

You might not be cool enough for it.

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.

Cons

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

Cons

'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.
