1992 Pontiac Firebird Formula 5.0 TBI from North America
Amazing all around
The only thing that has gone wrong with the car is leaky T tops, but that's almost a 100% chance that your T tops will leak on something this old, so I just don't drive it in the rain :)
The car does leak a little oil, but that's only because I took the engine apart to put in a better cam, and the oil pan seal is not seated right around the timing chain cover.
This car is a very good looking and is a soon to be classic.
The car stock is actually pretty decent on performance. Although I did put some mods in it, cause mods never hurt.
This car has never let me down (knock on wood), and it does take a beating since I do ride it hard, definitely after some mods.
This car has never had a problem, even though the first time I ever took an engine apart was on this car, and I did things like mess up the timing, and it still fired right up with no problems after.
The deepest I went into the engine was just a cam; every other internal piece is stock, pistons, crank, etc.
It might also only be this reliable because it has only 42,000 original miles on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
