Nice Reliable Car — nice sports car with t-tops that could pick up chicks any night of the week.

Pros: semi- fast car, no problems every

Cons: needs a v8 droped in it.
speed limiter won't let you do more than 120mph

1997 Pontiac Firebird Trans AmReview

It's Pretty Badass — I bought this car in April 2007. I've had my share of issues with it, but nothing surprising about buying a used car. Sometimes I wish I would've bought a newer model with an LS1 and manual transmission, but I got this for a decent price and I'm pretty attached to it now.

Pros: Fast, sounds good, looks pretty sweet, good LT1 engine and drivetrain, Magnaflow performance cat-back system, decent factory audio system. Lots of horsepower and torque too.

Cons: Pretty much all the electric motors throughout the car are crap - I had to replace the wiper motor, window motors, and antenna motor. Also, the suspension gets stiff and creaky in cold weather. Oh, and the headlight motors aren't that great either. LOL.

Only Had The Car A Week Still Finding Out About It But Like It A Lot. — the car seems to produce nice power, i have replaced the front sway bar end bushings with a trw set of eurothane parts there is a marked improvement in steerability already. there are however many things to learn and repair.

1997 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Review
Very comfortable. It was a 6-speed standard. I enjoyed the shifting part. Plenty of power! Down side of that was that I frequently had to replace tires.
