2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback


I've had 7 Fbirds or Camaros going back to 1970. This one would blow away ANY 60's Muscle Car and outhandle any race car of the 70s or 80s. For $32000, nothing touched it within $15K and then only a Vette. Next closest was $75K for a 911. 98% of a Vette's performance, 70% of the price--and better looks with more utility. Bright red is the only color for a GT. 160++ top speed. Only 17000 miles on it. And 25mpg on the highway. The ultimate American GT (with the SS Camaro.)It looks exactly like what it is: pure American Muscle. The Mustang needed a supercharger to just stay with it! Supercharge a TA and you put out 500+ hp. It will run with a Viper that costs 3 times as much.

Best Features

Sound. Loudmouth SLP exhaust is perfect. Looks: sleek and purposeful. Engine--none better than an LS1. 500 watt 10 speaker stereo with 12 disc changer is hard to beat. Grossly under rated at 320. Stock, 300 at the rear wheels = 370 or so at the crank. GM didn't want to embarass the Vette.

Worst Features

Leather should be better for $31K. Still has squeaks--although better than other F-bodies I've owned.
