2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback


I bought my 2000 Bright Red Trans Am
in early August of 2000 after
repeatedly test driving Mustangs,
Eclipses, Celicas, and even a BMW 3
series. What I wanted was a sporty,
fun, and fast car for around 25 - 30k.
I have every option except for the WS6
package (3k for 15 horses?)
I opted for the 4 speed auto rather
than the Hurst 6 speed which I found to
be clumsy with long throws and an
imprecise feel, not to mention that
horrid skip shift. The performance of
this car is just unreal. I haven't had
any problems thus far in the 1.5 years
that I've had it. The Monsoon
sound system is simply amazing. I would
reccomend this car to anyone who loves

Best Features

Ridiculously fast, T-Tops, incredible sound system, looks from other drivers / passers by

Worst Features

Better 6 speed gearbox and eliminate skip-shift on manual, offer 5 speed auto, a little less plastic on the interior
