1988 Pontiac Firebird F O R M U L A 350 WS6 from North America
When I got the car I bought it knowing that an older car was going to have problems so far I've changed the valve seals, shocks, struts, tail light bulb sockets, steering wheel, idler arm and I had an oil leak. I know it may sound like a lot, but once I took care of everything the car became indestructible. And well worth it.
This car has some sick power. It picks up fast from 0-100 but starts to fall off after a that, but I'm sure some engine work will solve that little dilemma. It handles remarkably well for its age and I'm surprised...I've taken 80mph turns in this car and I'm sure I can do it faster if I change my front tires because they wearing down. Just peeling out is effortless and you can't help, but punching the throttle every time you get in. I have Flowmasters on that thing and the exhaust note is mind blowing for muscle car lovers. All I really need is a paint job and some minor interior work which I can do on my own... I haven't driven it in the snow just yet, but I'm pretty sure it sucks in those situations as do all sports cars. Could have done without the t-tops though they do tend to leak although they are fun in good weather. All these cars need is some TLC and they will run forever and you will have fun driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
