    My new Trans Am

    Ive been on this website for a long time since 06 or 07, mostly just lurking. I drove a firebird, and now I have upgraded to a Trans am. Since I have a trans am now I will probably be posting a lot more.

    Thanks, I been getting compliments since the day Ive gotten it. It is a raptor hood. Notice the nostrils are a little bit bigger.

    Ya ya black with the raptor hood looks sweet! Is the silver one your 6-cylinder also? That's a good combo...

    Yeah, its was a really good deal and I jumped on it. The car has 93,000 miles. In my opinion that is just barely broken in. Ive seen close to 200,000 miles on these cars. I love the color and hood combo, its one of my top picks. The rims are ZR1 it has three of the things I wanted in a Trans Am. The cam, heads, exhaust are just a plus Yeah, the pewter 6 cylinder firebird is mine also. I paid it off a couple months ago. I let my sister drive it.

    Beauty! Nice find!

    Surprised how much I like that hood better than the Firehawk hood, is it just bigger nostrils that make it a Raptor?

    raptor hood is definately a nice upgrade from the stock t/a hood. wheels look good too. Drop it!

    Ah that's nice seeing the two hoods side by side like that. I agree that the raptor hood looks better with it's more aggressive sizing. It's easy to miss the lower firehawk hood sometimes.

    Thanks! The wheels size are 17x9.5 in front and 17x11 in the rear the tires are 315 and rub when I get on it. I need to get some spacers. I would lower it but the roads in Texas suck! Potholes and high curbs everywhere.

    i read that wrong and thought it said "sneezing"...

    i like the way the hawk hood meets the center piece by the nostrils... but i like the humps on the raptor and slightly larger nostrils...

    haha, the bigger nostrils on the car will help with the aggressive sneezing. I like how the humps on the raptor are more pronounced too.
