    First off, that is a Trans Am and as far as 4th gens go (1993-2002) Firebird=V6, Formular and Trans Am=V8.

    The easiest way to tell exactly what kind it is, is to look on the door where it should say Firebird, Formula or Trans Am. There are also other give aways such as the front and rear bumper and the spoiler.

    The car you have pictured is a Trans Am WS6. Note the raised rear spoiler, ram air hood and WS6 badge bellow the passenger side tail light. Although, to be completely sure it is a real WS6 is too look at the RPO codes on the driver side door.

    What kind of lot is that? An auction lot? Go check it out if you can.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    car looks OK at best, definately go see it and check the interior out before you commit to anything.
