1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 5.7 L LT1 from North America
A great looking car with incredible power, at a decent price
One of the fog lights got busted, and to my surprise it cost $120 for a new light... Just the light which I installed myself.
I liked my first car, a 1983 Firebird. But my 95 WS-9 Trans Am is an amazing car. The WS-9 performance package includes Ram Air, which will push out some more horse power. This car is a power house. When you take off you will be put back in your seat. It can do 150 mph, but I've only had it up to 140 mph.
The handling is amazing, I will fly through curves at high speeds and the car will stay firmly on the road.
Amazingly the gas milage isn't too bad. You'll get about 20 miles to the gallon.
The interior is great too. The seats have many different adjustments, such as lumbar, side, and thigh support. I'm 6'2" and I'm comfortable in there.
But, I'm not too crazy about the costs. Insurance is terrible. It probably has something to do with the fact that I'm an 18 year old male driving a high performance sports car. But there's nothing like cruising the town with the T-tops off and the wind in your hair. You will turn a few heads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but don't you mean Ws6, and didn't the Ws6 option appear in 96?
I have a 95 Trans Am and it's a Ws6 but, it doesn't have Ram Air, that option was added in 96.
Sorry WS6 means it's ram air. WS6 is the ram air option. I have a 94 Trans Am GT, and its WS6 (ram air). I purchased the ram air fiber glass hood, which saves weight from the factory hood. The ram air box I purchased actually came from the dealer from the first year option from a 96 Trans Am.
Sorry, kids, they made WS6 before you were born, in the 70's. Back then it was a suspension package. They had a Ram Air package too. I guess they combined them in the 90's.
