I love my Firebird. It's awesome looking. It's fun to drive and it's a muscle car. It's got a 305 and is quick! It's awesome.

Love my sexy car!
Formula 2dr Hatchback
This car is not only sexy and fun to drive, but screams off the line. I have the V8 and can smoke most newer cars out there. Love the T-Tops in the summer time, def a head turner.

Picking up chicks, roaring on main street, gliding threw the curvy back roads like a magic carpet. only a few thing that these car do excellently. most of the v8 Firebirds and Camaros have been BEATEN!!! and are now rusted and have more parts around them on the lawn than in them. If you want a car to burn the rubber off the wheels and leave a strip on the pavement get one with a v8 in it already (specifically a 350 (5.7 L) not a 305 (5.0 L) but if you want a car that you can say "I made this car the way it is" get a v6 (which will not been beaten!!!) and take the time and money to get a great engine and drop it in. the parts that these cars came with were not specifically made for performance

Should I lease or buy a 1990 Pontiac Firebird?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
