1993 trans american musclecar

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback

I bought this car late in its life. It had 80,000 miles on it and it was spotless. I bought it because I knew they sold cheap, and I like tinkering with cars, so it was a fast car for a low price. This car is comfortable and fun to drive. It has the last version of the original small block Chevrolet engine (LT1) so you get that legendary sweet exhaust tone as you drive. It runs and drives like a true blooded American muscle car. I love and savor every second I drive it. My car stock did 14.1@99 mph 1/4 mile at the race track. The LT1 (1993-1997) cars are complex engines and it takes time, patience and experience to understand them. Buy only if you like working on cars.

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Firebird Formula 2dr Hatchback

I have had this car for a year now and have no complaints. It handles very well and takes off how and when you want it to. Its got 186,000 miles on it and you would never know it without looking at the numbers.I've won several competitions and am now a true firebird fan.

She's getting old. Parts are starting to fail. Worst so far, altenator, heater hoses (2007) oil leak on pan and timing cover, which is gonna be one nasty fix. Blew the posi in'97.

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback

A black 67,000 actual mile TA with an aftermarket 4" cowl hood plus the factory spoiler and chrome wheels prompted us to name this the Batbird after the Batmobile. We have added subtle Batman logos tastefully onto the interior and exterior of the car. Installed a performance chip, cold air intake, 1.6 rocker arms, performance exhaust, MSD ignition and wow, this TA became a real screamer. Spanks the Cobra's on the weekend at present. Planning to add a supercharger and a 100 hp shot of nitrous soon. Here Viper,here viper! Overall this car has great reliability with no major problems. A few rattles here and there but the exhaust drowns that out. This is the new classic w/no more being made now.

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Firebird Formula 2dr Hatchback

What can I say; purchased it right off the showroom floor and may never part with it. Engine is still bone stock internally. Bigger injectors, headers and a little supercharger make this fast vehicle faster. They have been on for 9 years and its still running strong. The car is showing its age with the usual creaks and rattles but I can live with them; just turn up the radio louder. The only item that has failed is the radio and the door speakers; easy fixes. You cant go wrong with the looks either. It still turns heads even for a 13 yr old car. The rear end has been replaced but it didnt fail but probably would have running slicks so a 12 bolt was easily installed. very fun car.

It's a great car. It's eleven years old and is still running strong. Everything in the interior is easy to reach and your hand naturaly falls on the shifter. Al my friends love it.

don't see Honda making its family cars look like Firebirds for a reason. Staying a little mroe conservative with clean lines will let the styling last longer, and the car will not look dated in a ye...
