1995 Pontiac Firebird 3.4L V6 from North America


Beautiful sleek machine!



Passenger window motor.




General Comments:

This is a great car. I have the v6 model, so it's not the fastest car but it has great looks.

As for things that had to be replaced, well its general maintenance. the previous owner did not do much, so I had a lot few things to do when I bought it.

Great looking car, put on a dual exhaust, chick magnet! although its not the most comfortable car for a long ride.

My best friend


Headlight gears make grinding noise when closing. Is a free fix, but complicated, from what I hear.

Passenger side window is currently going out.

ABS light came on. Needed new rotors, one twice now. Have had to replace various sensors.

Turn Signal/Windhshield Wiper column broke a plastic part at the base and fell off out of nowhere.

Antennae motor had to be disconnected, no longer goes down, and grinds gears something horrible when it tries.

General Comments:

Great handling. Great looks. It's been a reliable car. It has been worth it's bills.

Very solid. It holds it's own. Near two tons and cat take a bit of a beating. After owning this car, my standards on safety for my next car have risen.

I would buy another. I recommend the V6 to anyone who wants the handling and the look of a sports car without necessarily having the muscle car that racks up the insurance. Would make great first car, weekend car, or even a daily driver (if you don't have too much snow where you live).

1995 Pontiac Firebird Formula Convertible 5.7 Liter LT1 from North America

Optispark, starter, alternator all needed to be replaced.

General Comments:

This car rules! This was my dream car and I bought the exact car I was looking for. Black Formula Convertible, 6 Speed. It's sexy and the chicks love it. But that's not why you buy a car like this. It's to go very fast!

The car has been modified and it pushing about 400 HP (from 275 stock) and it's an absolute blast to drive. It handles great and has been very reliable. This car will stay in my garage forever!!

If you say its pushing 400hp I hope you have some significant upgrades happening, like a supercharger. All the kids out there say their car is pushing like 100hp over stock because of some fart cannon and an intake with a straight pipe, both of which do nothing.

Fart cannon.. now that's funny!!!

With the LS1 it's a lot easier to make power then most motors out there. My LS1 is putting down 412 rwhp with cam, injectors, intake, exhaust and tune, ram intake and some other "stuff".

But to get back to it, the simple fact is speed costs money and the LS1 is far more economical to build or mod then most powerplants out there. But what do I know? I'm just a jet aircraft mechanic.

This car is a dream come true


I have replaced the spark plugs, and the wires, the opti-spark, the transmission, and the driver side window motor along with the track. Just recently the fuel pump went out which the dealer charges $950 to change, but I found a much cheaper way of just cutting a hole in the back to get right to the pump. Less than two days after fixing the pump, my transmission mount went on me and I had to fix that myself to save $150. My power antenna has also quit working, but I have my mp3 player to get me out of that one. Other than that I have to replace the tires because the cars so fast it is hard to go anywhere without lighting them up.

General Comments:

Unbelievable car. When this thing is running, which now its running perfectly, it's got to be the funnest car on the planet. T-tops down, flowmasters rumbling, the most fun you'll ever have. The torque is amazing and the body is immaculate for being ten years old. It handles like a dream and the low to the ground feel of it just makes you want to blast everywhere. I want this car as long as I can, considering I'm only 17, I'm not sure how long that will be, but it is awesome even with all the repairs I've had to do to it, I mean, isn't working on the car half the fun?

I just turned 18 and I seen your 17. I was looking into buying one hows the insurance cost on the formulas?

Insurance for these things suck... I'm also 17 years old. I'm currently looking for a muscle car and decided to go with the trans am. the one in particular is a 95' trans am, the insurance quote on it for me was 350$ a month for full coverage and I think around 150$ a month just for liability. So what engine does the trans am come stock with LS1 or LT1?

The F-bodys had a LT1 all the way up until 1997. After that the Trans Am and Firebirds had the LS1.

I'm 19 myself and got a Firebird a few months back; it's the 3.4 but I'm not complaining since I can now change out the engine, and by the time I'm done with it I'll be able to take on the legendary Firehawks ha ha. Maybe not, but that is my dream for this car.
