Ah the shapes you can get fibreglass into. Good looking whip, man. Now sell it and dump the funds into a bimmer

Seriously, someone put some long wrench time into that baby, and any gearhead(myself included) is going to appreciate it, despite our slightly skewed sense of perception.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

Good deal man. Let's see here...
MSD ignition
optima yellow top(good choice)
Aftermarket strut brace
nitrous
and a big bore throttle body, which probably means ported and polished intake

am i right?

I've not driven a trans am firebird, I've ridden in one... but I have driven a moded 6cly firebird of the same body style and it felt huge to me. They can do some respectable things, beastly quick, but as far as driving one again... I'll pass.

v8 in the trans am. firebirds are v-6. unless its a firebird formula, which is a v8 lol. im not a huge fan of domestic cars. but there a select few tht i like. on of them being the Trans-AM WS-6 (like the one in the OP). its one of the meanest looking cars there is. i plan to own one soon enough. everyone should own at least one muscle car in their lifetime

I almost bought one a while back, it was a debate between a ws-6 and the z3.. then some wholesaler stole the ws-6 out of under my feet and got the Z instead.


Cool car.

BALKAN is on a distinguished road
i believe pontiac also made firehawk, which had some different features. not sure if the engine was the original gm lt1/ls1 v8. it had defferent wheels and badging and was rare. why rare? formula, trans am what really was diffrent?
The price was equevalent to a mustang cobra, which was not as powerfull but the cobra kept its value. oh yea the firebird is out of production, extinct. gm is making a big hype on the new camaro, yea the prototype looks sweet, but when chevy puts on the corvette price tag, install bulging bumpers and make it a 4door sedan, then will speak. gm has ruined several sports cars in its line of fine cars. the only true gm sports car is the corvette, but the price tag keeps most corvette enthusiast even from dream of it. just yesterday i vomited when i saw the new impala SS, i thought SS stood for super sport and not slow sedan, the looks like its standing still while moving. the ssr pick up, completely impracticle 50 grand junk. hhr a copy of the pt cruiser with hundreds of recalls already. the cavalier, you'd be lucky to get 70k miles without the engine blowin up, oh at the 70k the resale value is 50 bucks at the junkyard.

by the way thats a nice firechicken.

Glad you asked! A Firehawk begins life on the regular assembly line in Quebec as a Firebird Formula with the Chevy LT1 350cid V-8 motor (275hp). From there, they are put on GM's transportation system and sent to the Street Legal Performance (SLP) factory just down the road. From there it is put back on the transportation system and delivered to your favorite Pontiac dealer. The base upgrade includes:

* "Ram Air" cold air induction system (+25hp)
* composite hood with functional scoops for Ram Air
* upgraded suspension including
o thicker front sway bar and bushings
o panhard rod (track bar)
o jounce bumper spacers (for larger tires)
o rear lower control arms
* specific Speedline aluminum wheels with Firestone Firehawk SZ P275 40R17 tires (P245 45R16 on convertible)
* Firehawk decals
* serialized dash plaque (+5hp!)
* Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil and rear-axle lubricant

Available optional equipment includes:

* Performance Exhaust
* Suspension Option
* Hurst shifter (manual only)
* Firehawk logo floormats (+50hp!)

SLP claims 4.9sec 0-60 and 13.5@103mph in the 1/4 mile. Somehow I doubt my meager driving skills could make those numbers but I guess I'll never know until I go to the track...

Street Legal Performance is considered a low-volume manufacturer like Saleen of Mustang fame and not simply an aftermarket tuner. All Firehawk components have been crash-tested and are covered by SLP's warranty matching the usual GM 3/36. SLP also performs the Comp T/A, WS6 Formula and Trans Am, and Camaro SS conversions.
