I Love This Car. — Car is sexy, sleek, and fast. Hurst 6 speed manual tranny with ws6 performance package is fun to drive. The car wants to go. "Hey dad look, it's the Batmobile!" Get used to this type of attention. Exhaust is throaty. T tops off, stereo up, off to the beach you go. There is nothing I don't like about this car.

'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.

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

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.

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

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.

You may want to look good in a car but in my eyes all you need is the sound and you cant beat a V8 for sound quality because it just rumbles, slowly ticking over waiting to eat you up with sound. Read More
