A great American muscle car

1997 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback
'97 Pontiac Trans Am. Love my baby! I bought this car used (one owner), and it's now 11 years old, but you'd never know it. It's been very dependable and hasn't given me any major problems, except that I go through rotors fairly fast even though I'm not hard on braking. Obviously not recommended for everyone, but it's awesome to drive. It's my daily driver, and I put about 8,000 miles on it annually. Not too good in the snow, but if you've driven RWD before, you'll know what to expect - Traction control helps. If you have a "beater" and can keep a car like this in the garage in the winter, that's the best option. It's a shame GM doesn't make these anymore; they are sorely missed.
Beautiful body, nice Monsoon stereo system, bucket seats, strong power and delicious V8 rumble.
None really. In really cold weather, the heater has trouble keeping up with temperatures, but this isn't really a winter car anyway.
