Awesome! — Love everything and hate nothing about this car. Awesome looking car with great power. Has ton of appeal and turns heads everywhere. Future classic car with timeless styling! Since Pontiac no longer exist, this car will without a doubt be a sought after car in years to come due to the excellent Fbody platform, power, and looks. Don't hesitate if you can get your hands on a nice Trans Am. You won't regret it.

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

Pros: Timeless style with great LSX power!

Cons: Nothing

Cool Enough For Daily Drive, But Neds Care Like Others. — I am a Firebird fan, so it would not be to fair against others. Small engough for city parking, fast when needed, but sometimes a little too low torque, stick-shift what's a real-deal thingy, only for 2 people or with young family - 2 adults + 2 kids, but no more needed,

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small engough for city parking, fast when needed, but sometimes a little too low torque, stick-shift what's a real-deal thingy, only for 2 people or with young family - 2 adults + 2 kids, but no more needed,

Cons: Only for 2 people or with young family - 2 adults + 2 kids,but no more needed, small cargo capacity which is a bad thing for long traveling,

Sporty — Great power. Extremely dependable. Ordered this car back in Sept 97 and waited 3 months to have it built for me. No T-Tops. No extra frills. This car runs great and has needed very little repairs. Lots of original equipment still on it..

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

Pros: Fast especially with the 6 speed.  

Cons: Poor gas mileage.

The Amazing 3.8 V6 — The 3.8 v6 has surprising power and when backed by the 5 speed manual tranny gets great gas miliage. I can drive this car pretty hard and average 26 mpg, or drive it nice and get up to 32. The handling is awsome, 98 and up v6 f-body's have the same suspension setup as the v8 models.

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

Pros: Good power, great mpg's, FUN TO DRIVE

Cons: Uh...

This Is Not A Car For The Family Man, But It's Defenatly A Weekend Driver That Is Made For Fun! — This car is fantastic, I drove this car all summer with the T-Tops out and hair blowing in the wind. It was fast, cool, turned heads, and never had a single issue. This car is an engine on wheels that was made to haul ass. The brakes are strong, shifting is smooth as glass, and corners like it's on rails. The only gripe I would ever have with this car is that it just isn't made for more than two people, and friends just hate being cramped into the backseat, but this car is made for two, so get your lover, turn the key, and prepare for a very fun ride!

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

Pros: FAST FAST FAST! Car runs like a bat out of hell and for the price, there are very few other cars that can keep up!

Cons: Don't buy as a family car!

Have Some Extra Coin? Buy One! — * Performance - doesn't turn that well with the drag suspension, however in a strait line, watch out. * Build Quality -New Motor, New Transmission, Nitrous, Stall, Exhaust, all replaced by choice. * Appearance - Whats not to like? * Cost of Ownership - this is a null and void point, this is an expensive toy. * Fun Factor -Smile to my face just starting it.

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

Pros: LS1 V8 American Muscle good ness

Cons: A corvette is a better handling choice

I Recommend This Car For Anyone Who Wants A Sporty Car That Doesnt Wanna Spend Alot Of Money On Gas — very nice car it will beat 85% of all cars under 8 CYL engines and most likely will beat all 305 8 CYL engine depending on weight ratio, its not all about performance though the looks are one of the best parts of the car overall with removable t-tops for a hot day this we definitely get the ladies in your car. with a little exhaust work no matter what it is people will be scared to race you even in a base trim.

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

Pros: RWD, light weight fast car, fully customizable, t-tops,

Cons: brake dust on alloy wheels =(, headlight problems, windows motor problems,
