83 Firebird — Slow with a 2.8 liter V6. Sounds like a small V8 with Cherry bomb exhaust. Manual Tranny is flawless. Body is in almost mint shape with original paint. Decent fuel mileage. Old school rear wheel drive. Fun around corners. Interior looks fantastic except for aftermarket seat belts that I got put in. Awesome aftermarket Pioneer stereo with Bose Home entertainment Co axle speakers loud and sounds awesome.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fantastic Condition, Awesome handling, Sounds Good, Great sound system, Fuel Efficient kinda

Cons: Slow, slow, slow, Bust Out Another Thousand, Hard to find aftermarket parts

Chief Firebird Of The Pontiac Tribe — It's my #3.222 dream car. Not as fun to drive as I thought it would be, but I think it looks even cooler than a Corvette, Ferrari, or Lamborghini. The acceleration rate seems even more sluggish than on the Regal. This must be the bare-boned version.

Pros: Cool 80s look

Cons: No cruise control!

Funa Nd I Love It, Put A Lot Into It — Sweet car, but I need to restore more of the interior, then paint it in less than the two days I was able to take last time. Hauls ass and I love the performance tires, though. Bit of a gas hog, but what are you gonna do?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun sports car with nice handling

Cons: A bit of a gas hog, but welcome to V8 carburetion land

83 Firebird Trans Am — I bought this as a project car. to be fair whoever had this car before me didn't take care of it, and really beat on it. it just has a 305 so it really doesn't have too much power but it still burns a lot of gas. It is fun to drive because of the 5 speed manual transmission. i think it was maybe not the best interior even when it left the factory, the center console is such thin plastic it just looks cheap, and a lot of the rear panels dont look like they were made too solid. but still it is fun to have and drive

Pros: 5 speed

Cons: interior quality
