1986 Pontiac Firebird Base 2.8 V6 from North America
Don't drive em in snow unless you like ditches
Right side headlight motor is starting to go. 88,250.
Needed new tires when I got it. 82,000.
Transmission mounts need replaced. 88,000.
My first car, bought it at a VERY reasonable price.
The car has many options on it, such as tilt wheel, T bar roof, 6 disc CD player with amp, overdrive transmission (not sure if that was an option or not).
Well I bought it in November of 2005 with 82,500 miles on it, for around $1,500. It sat under my car port for about a year until I got my driver's license.
I have since put in a K&N high flow air filter, which made a very noticeable difference, removed the stock cat converter, and added a highflow. Removed the stock muffler and welded in a FlowTech Terminator.
Just had to replace the rear tires due to the previous owner's abuse, I bought the Firestone Firehawks, which have really helped with wintertime handling.
All in all, with some of the minor performance modifications I have made, this little 2.8 is really pretty quick now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
