    Awesomeness — Needs super to get great HP, easy to upgrade, then performs like a beast. Solid, straight body, fast on the gas, easy shifting, fairly good fuel economy for a sports car. super fun summer car (i have t-tops) but horrible in the winter (spun out how many times?)

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

    Pros: T-Tops!

    Cons: bad for winter driving

    Fun, Functional Car That Has Awesome Looks And Good Performance. — Acceleration is what you'd expect from a stock V6. Got new brakes right after buying it. Handles a little loose, especially at higher speeds, but is manageable. No big repairs done to it, had ground effect piece rip off during winter time, have the replacement, just need to get it painted. Exterior is Arctic White, interior is gray. T-Tops are great, don't leak. Need new rims badly, stock ones are/were chrome and are now peeling like crazy. It is a fun car to drive and I love being able to every day. It's been hesitating to start lately and has sputtered quite a bit lately.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The F-body firebird is one of the sexiest looking american sports cars ever, in my opinion

    Cons: None.

    I Enjoyed Driving This Car For The 7 Years On Had It. — Great everyday car with a lot more room in it than it looks. Plenty of power for what I need, good handling and braking. Not so good in snow. Relatively inexpensive to operate and maintain. Very comfortable and very fun to drive, especially on a nice day with the "T" tops off!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: Not good in the snow or ice

    My Formula — great car for the money if u want speed, a little work and you'll outrun cars costing 5 times as much, the ls1 is an awesome powerplant to hot rod and blow the doors off beemers, acuras, or whatever

    Pros: easy power with the ls1 engine, tnt f1 nitrous system

    Cons: crummy 10 bolt rear ends, skip shift

    Firebird — The pontaic firebird is very stylish and aero dinamic and it has a meaty v8 engine to back up what its looks say about it. the two front seats are very nice the driver seats dashs and controls soround you like cockpit one amazing car. one of the best cars ever in that price range still today.

    Pros: sleek styling and a fast tourqy engine

    Cons: not alot of back seat room or trunk room
