    Firebird, Trans Am, Firehawk, Blackhawk

    I heard about a "Blackhawk" & saw one on ebay a few years ago.
    If my memory serves me correct I think it was called a blackhawk.
    But I remember it saying that model of the Trans Am came with 435 hp. This true?

    Whats the stats on the Firehawk and Blackhawk & whatever other trans am I'm missing if there are anymore.
    Actually what are the stock stats on all Bird/TA models.

    I wouldn't mind a BlackBird. Top it off with the Breathless headlight conversion and I'd be happy not tinkering with it. I wouldn't mind Firehawk 001, I THINK that's what it's called.

    Balckhawks and Blackbirds are sweet rides, but good luck in finding one. Even WS-6s are a right nut to get one anymore. No one who owns one wants to get rid of them. I know I won't get rid of mine, unless I know I can score another and make a buck out of it.

    Never seen or heard of a Blackhawk but, have heard of the Carl Black Blackbird. Is this what you are referring to or is there some pic or something of it? I'm curious.

    youre def thinking of a blackbird. done up by gmmg and carl black. and yes, there were some that were phase II 435hp.

    i actauly drove a year one edition, gmmg blackbird, phase II at a local used car lot called don sitts. hes a big corvette and classic car dealer. this car was his sons. id really never heard about them before this car. it ends up, that only 10 year one blackbirds ever made, only 2 of those were phase II's, and one had been wrecked. i ended up driving the one and only one left. wish i would have know this when i drove it, they wanted 32k for it, and it had like 8k miles on it.

    this is the first time i had heard the gmmg chambered exhaust and fell in love with it. first thing i bought when i got my car.

    but if you seach gmmg/carl balck/blackbird, youll find out all the info you need, youll really have t search to find anything on a phase II 435hp, but they def exist, trust me

    GMMG sells the chambered exhaust and polished tips for around $900. I'm going to get one someday as well. I like my magnaflow but, the GMMG chambered sounds real good.

    i know right! but then again, dont think i could have a $32K car that i really couldnt drive. that thing was pretty sweet though. def had a lot more pull than my car does right now. i also love the two tone silver. its funny when i look back cuz i kinda beat the crap out of it.

    Have a good friend who has a GMMG Blackbird Convertible in Black that's an 02 model only 2 made that year. He got a fairly good deal on it after working on the guy at a fairly out of the way used car lot. Nice car and one of the reasons I now own a T/A.

    Well, if I ever stumble across one, I'll know what it is and drop a nut on the parking lot just before I make an offer.

    That is a Firehawk not a Blackbird. Doubt you would see a Blackbird with that many miles and if you did it probably still wouldn't be that inexpensive. They had a couple of different colors for them I believe ... at least Red and NBM for sure.
