    My "mid-life Crisis" Car! — It takes some getting used to, and there are a few tricks to learn to be able to see around the blind spots and keep the back from sliding on the turns. I certainly wouldn't let my 20 year old son drive it, but for a more experienced driver who has finally earned her right to have a "sports car", this car rocks! Some complaints: The Body Control Module tends to shake loose and must be repaired periodically, and when the fuel pump needs replacement be prepared for major expense. Also the fog lights tend to burn out quickly, and they are a bear to replace for someone without a lift. Acceleration can be a little slow and driving in the rain is sometimes a scary experience. Even with brand new tires, the car can slip on wet streets with minimal acceleration. Still, overall I love my car. I've had for 4 years now and while she's been in the shop a few times, I can pretty much count on her to get me where I'm going and looking good while doing it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent gas mileage, comfortable front seats, fun to drive.

    Cons: Big blind spots, cd player does not play burned cds, light rear end,

    Ls1 — Its a nice powerful car with amazing looks. Gm did a awesone job at making the 4th f bodys. Its a true mustang killer! With over 300hp stock and very little to be done to make it to 400hp. ls1 was touched by the hand of god.

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

    Pros: the power

    Cons: the cost for parts

    Your Basic Firebird — great car for yourself or one other but not a family car, cant carry much, there is a back seat but its useless other then a few groceries, but its a great car for just riding around and relaxing in.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: t-tops, fast of the line, looked good

    Cons: huge blind spots

    Pros: Fun car to drive in

    Cons: If it would have the v8 u than would want to avoid it

    It's My Car. — for a v6 it's pretty fast. i love the appearance of the interior and exterior. the cost of ownership isn't that bad, it gets average gas mileage. it is fun to drive, love that it is a convertible. yup yup.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: convertible

    Cons: that it is so light and slides all over the place in the snow.

    Performance You Love From A Brand You Don't Anymore. — Great way to get from point A to point B, hastily if neccessary. Makes you want to rock a mullet and some 80's hair metal with the t-tops off. Easiest way to get 320+ horsepower under your right foot for under 10 grand.

    Pros: Consistantly inches out SRT-8's from a 50 roll on the freeway. FACT.

    Cons: Rear ends ain't cheap!

    Little Red Bird — First off this thing is the sexiest thing for the money. I love how it looks and with the T-top its a babe magnet and even 70 year old women agree with me. The car also preforms well, it handles really well I just wish it had more power to go with its capable chassis.

    Pros: Good looks, image, relativly good economy, preforms well

    Cons: V6, small back seat, odd trunk, low grade interior

    Great Car With Lots Of Power. — Great car had it for almost 3 years now and the only thing that is a flaw is the light rearend, but that can be fixed with a rear-mounted turbo! Great to drive and only about 17k with low miles! Tint on black is sexy so everyone knows by the way! Adding cross-drilled rotors and performance brakes would be first to do though because then you can stop the beast whenever you need(a.k.a. 5-0).

    Pros: Great acceleration and top speed, perfect for leaving people in the dust.

    Cons: Light back-end causing loss of control easy.
