    What do you think?

    So I finally found myself a replacement DD.
    it's a 2002, with 85K miles Pewter Metallic
    it's pretty nice, only option it's w/o is the disk changer, and leather.

    I'm going to look at it tomorrow, for 6k. try to get the price down a bit.

    I'm going to put a ram air hood on it (probably not a functional one tho)
    and then get the 30th anniversary decals made in black for it...

    what do you guys think and give me some suggestions for visual mods (no performance, I have a formula for that!!)

    but does the pewter with black sound good? if anyone has pics post em up!
    thanks-

    people think it's a v6 w/ exhaust!!

    im in the same boat as him I want to get a black Firebird v6 with T-tops for my daily driver so i can keep the Collectors ed ws6 in the garage for a sunny day.

    i dont care about the gas but i can get a firebird for like 4-6k cash and i have it sitting around somewhere.. maybe in the couch!

    well i know it's kinda dumb to put money into it, but i plan on having both cars for quite sometime.
    my formula is pretty low mileage, and i want to keep it that way.
    but i want an f-bod to drive on a daily basis, plus i commute to another town 5 days a week. and this one is pretty nice and not too high miles.

    i have a beater, 99 f-150....
    parents got it for me way back when.

    i just love our cars, regardless of engine....
    it's just what day of the week and how fast i wanna go.

    you do make a good point AT.... maybe i'm just liking the idea of owning two birds that look bad ass....
    idk i'll probably leave it how it is, I'm just wondering what i could do to it, to make it look better...

    I say go for it. It looks pretty nice to me. First thing i would do is swap the hatch with one from a T/A, i seriously hate those low wings that come on firebirds. I think the rear looks terrible with that little spoiler.

    idk, maybe....
    it all depends, yeah the low profile hatch is pretty ugly.
    it's a nice car though, way nicer than my old dd firebird.

    haha, yeah people gotta get it straight!

    Firebird= V6
    Formula= V8
    T/A= V8

    I think that looks like a great DD car. If your not worried about gas and are gonna drive it everyday then sounds like a good deal.

    yeah I have the formula outside under it's cover...
    firebird, is sitting out...

    trans am is out there somewhere calling my name, I'll find it someday when I can afford it!

    innerchi89- I knew i'd seen one like this somewhere on here. i like the body kit on it, it's a change from the typical ta body kit.

    Check out my other bird!

    I like it! ive always liked the w68 birds. it would make a great dd. hey the 3800 isnt a bad motor either. . . its just a puss when ya compair it to the ls1. and i like the spoilers on the birds. . . thats whats cool about the regular bird vs tas, is the difference in their looks. . lil variety!
