Fun And Goodlooking — Overall a pretty solid car. Cheap to maintain and easy to work on. Looks good. Drives good. Not the best family vehicle but it wasnt ment to be. Not many left in such nice condition. Good car to cruise and have fun in.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Good power, torque. Good handling. Fun to drive. Nice sleek look.

Cons: Not very family friendly. Handling is terrible in anything but nice weather.

1989 Trans Am Firebird Gta — Love it. 350 small block, 5.7L of pure power TBI original 1989 show room floor model. Haven't had any problems but with only one other owner and 66,000 original miles...one can't complain. American Muscle at its finest!!! Is one of the fastest cars over driven. Smokes out Mustangs and a few Cameros. Maintenance is easy and there's plenty of room in the engine for just about any modifications you want to add.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great Power ...my L98 5.7L 350 small block is a Monster.  Fully stocked from original 1989 show room. I love my Bird! Fun car must have..American Muscle.. America!!!

Cons: You will feel every bump in the road.

Great North American Muscle Car — I love the car, it's been pretty reliable. Probably the most reliable car I've bought. There's tons of parts out there for them to make them plenty powerful. I've always enjoyed driving it, especially since I changed up the suspension. My only problems I would say with it is exhaust routing and bigger brakes would be good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the look of the car, sleek yet fast

Cons: I hate that I've had to change tires a few times because no one knew what was wrong with the alignment

I Love My 'bird! — This is a 6 cylinder tank. Gets great gas mileage as well as very fun to drive. Maintenance costs are low. I bought it for my son in high-school and kept it for myself when he graduated college and went into the Air Force.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very dependable.  Sturdy, handles very well. Fun to drive and the t-tops make it an excellent road trip vehicle.

Cons: Can't think of one.

Great Car! — What's not to like? It's loaded with gray leather, looks like a corvette in front, has 45k original miles, and is a beautiful deep red with gold honeycomb rims. The L98 corvette motor has been mildly built to approximately 300 horses.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks and handles great

Cons: gets 20 mpg on hwy, but am working on getting it up higher

An Affordable Fun Sleek Awesome 80's Muscle Car — This is my 1989 Pontiac Firebird. I saved this car from the crusher after it had been hit while parked on a used car lot. It has been an experience rebuilding this car and i have loved this car since i was 12. It is a decently fast car for being a v6 and i would recommend this car to anyone who wants a fun sleek 80's style sports car

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 1. It's awesome 2. It's still awesome 3. Its an affordable classic that will turn heads and make people envy you.

Cons: If your going to have more than 2 passengers the back seats are for decoration use only, the leg room is designed for kids and midgets

Great Car. I Miss It Dearly. — This car was found in a junk yard in my home town. We bought it for $700 and proceeded to rebuild it. Two years later when I turned 16 she was done. Motor was a stout little 2.8 litre v6 with multi-port fuel injection. It had an automatic transmission. The interior was in great shape and the exterior looked great after repairing the damage to the right rear that the car had sustained prior to it being junked. I put this car through its paces. Never wrecked it. Loved owning it. Never had a lot of problems. Fun car to bomb around in. Gas mileage was so-so because the car was under powered. About 16mpg in town on average. On the highway she ran great and loved to just cruise. Also a great car in the snow and ice. Never got it stuck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, easy to drive, looks cool, easy to handle

Cons: Needs to be tinkered with. I loved it but some people wouldn't.

1989 Firebird Formula — Good over all performance, sturdy build, i like the way it looks but mine is pretty rough due to sitting for 7 years, ownership cost is pretty low spend 1000 on it and its costing little to keep it up, gas mileage is pretty good for a v8. I love hammering down on the gas and just flying in this car, not to mention the T-Tops are amazing

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Engine and the T-Tops

Cons: T-Tops leak a bit and parts can be a little tough to come by

Be Prepaired To Put Some Money In It — beefed up exaust, ultra wide back tires, dual 12" subs with pulsating neon lights, t-tops, good riding car, low to the ground but watch out during the summer, it likes to over heat and you have to let it sit for a while

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fast

Cons: over heats
