Untouchable And Undefeated! 8- Second Car! — Awesome handling with wide all- weather tires and new demensions sway bars, interior is slightly warn but clean and comfy for those long trips. Powered by just a 3.4 SFI, turbo charged, and K&N intake sytem all flown out through Flowmaster dual exaust that make the car sound and perform awesome. Plus, its a gas conserver.

Pros: The high excelleration, builds up the racing adrenaline!

Cons: In my opinion, nothing, you would have to drive it yourself..

Breath Taking — The car has a 5.7 liter V8 that produces 275 hp. It can run low 14's stock. I am putting a 10" sub in the back along with new 16" American Racing Rims.

Pros: fast

Cons: not really a comfortable ride.

Miss Her — I miss her. I got this car the week I proposed to my wife...I was actually test driving it the night I proposed. Had it from 1997-2002, the only problems she ever gave me was that she would go through a coil pack about every 10000 miles.

Pros: Style, power, acceleration, handling.

Cons: She had a brain.  She knew when we'd talk about haqving to get rid of her and she's start acting up, true story.  Her brakes gave out for no reason after driving through a car lot.

Um, Yeah So They Stopped Making These In 2002... — The quality of this model was much worse than that of the 87 model. There was an uncommon error in the spark plugs--the repair was nearly triple what it normally would have been. Also, the were a lot of problems with the alarm system. On the positive side, it was a nice looking ride for me when I was living on the beach...hello T-tops!

Pros: T-tops

Cons: Spark Plugs and Alarm System

This Is A Great Car To Tool Around In. — I really like driving this car. It reminds me of my younger days when I had a "69 Z-28 Camaro. I like the looks and it gets lots of looks. Mine is purple. It's a blast and my wife likes to ride in it.

I'm The Original Owner, Store It In Winter, And Can't Wipe The Smile Off My Face When I Drive It! — This car always causes people to stare and give a thumbs up. It is a great ride. Mileage however, is bad (15-19 mpg). My mechanic hates to work on it due to all the hoses, etc.

Owner for 12 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:6,000

Pros: Beautiful looking, sounds like a beast, great acceleration, handles great!

Cons: Fishtails when any water is on the road, bumpy ride (for some).

Inexpensive To Buy, Fun To Drive, Looks Great And Not Hard To Work On —

I'm 42 years old and have owned 27 cars and 3 motorcycles. I've bought and sold cars for just about every reason imagineable, alhough I only drove 2 to the grave. My latest acquisition was a 95 Firebird Convertible. It had a couple issues and I bought it at a dangerously low price of $2100. Well, after only a few hours I fixed what was wrong with it for about $30 and detailed the car completely. The car is now worth almost 5 grand. I read another review, complaining that it's noisy. Well, it's a sportscar. They're noisy. As far as a towncar handling better? highly unlikely. The laws of physics pretty much rule that out. My review: The firebird's body is made up of a lot of plastic or fiberglass. Unlike metal bodys, there can be more flex if someone is careless and pushes too hard. When this happens, the paint can crack. On the upside, the majority of the panels don't crack and better yet don't dent or rust. Paint, also looks better longer on composite than on metal. The 3.4 engine was surprisingly far back under the hood, likely improving weight distribution. Space under the hood with the 3.4 V6 is slightly cramped by still workable although some components may be difficult to get at, requiring disassembly of other things to gain access. This can drive up the cost of a repair. Parts, on the other hand are surprisingly affordable for the firebird and 3.4 V6 in particular. Even a replacement roof to match the original can be gotten for $450, including the glass back window with defroster. The ride is surprisingly smooth when compared to a newer 350Z, which gave my kidneys the ride of their lives. The firebird, on the other hand smooths out medium bumps in a well-tuned manner. Handling? Well mine came equipped with new 11-inch wide Goodyear F1 tires. Cornering feels like a cranival ride. This car can take lateral G's that will leave a big Ford sedan for the jaws of life to open. The convertible top is nicely fitted, and is raised/lowered with hydraulic rams. The mechanism seems to be well-designed and the fit-and-finish is excellent for any convertible top. The interior, well sure you need either an amputee or half-pint kids back there. If their lack of footspace bugs them, open up the roof and they'll be entertained. NOTE: A kid's car seat will NOT fit, at least not with a kid in it, BUT the rear seats are practically kid seats anyway. They epitomize "bucket seats". In the front, especially for the driver, the inside is all sportscar. The middle console is high, the shifter is in a nice placement, the gauge cluster has all the gauges expected, the air conditioning vents are durable, nicely directional and visually nice. When the roof is up, there is a blind spot just behind the passenger door window, a wedge mirror applied to the passenger RV mirror can eliminate that blind spot, I install them on all my vehicles. My interior is dark grey leather, the steering wheel is wrapped in leather and has a surprising amount of stereo controls. The driver's seat has an adjustable lumbar and other controls. The stereo has poor bass response. I plan to swap out the speakers, which are in the doors (2 each) and on the sides in the rear. The dashboard is a vast plain, but that is because the windshield is so shallow, it's about 4 feet from the front (bottom) edge to the roofline. A benefit if having such a shallow windshield, aside from aerodynamics, is that over the life of the car it will encounter fewer permanent pits (ever see all the imperfections in your high-mileage windshield when the sun is low?) less of that with a firebird. Oh, and the wipers work well. The center console boasts a covered storage bin and a cupholder. The shifter has no gear display at the steering column in the gauge cluster, only at the middle console (unlike my Grand Prix GT). The front seats are comfortable and there is ample leg room for a 6' tall man such as myself. There is a hump in the passenger-front floor (probably for the catilytic converter), but it dosen't seem to cause much trouble except to get the floor mat to conform well to that part of the floor. Visually, this car is stunning. It's bold. It's sleek. It has attitude. Sure, it's not a corvette, but for what it is and what I paid for it, I am extremely satisfied.

Pros: good car for the money. Great styling, handling. Very fun to drive. Low cost for parts. Not too hard to work on.

Cons: Not a good car to neglect. It's a sportscar, so it's noisy and cramped. Want quiet and space? Don't get a sportscar.
