    I am going to go with the one you like best.

    I know that is VERY generic, but it is also very true.

    +1 You have to go with what you like. In our case, I had always wanted a black Ram Air WS.6 car. I also wanted a manual transmission, but had to compromise on that one.

    The newest Firebird is now 7 years old, so you may have to shop around a bit to find something in good condition and with reasonable mileage on the odometer. There have been some pretty good lists posted recently of items to check out on these cars before purchasing. Good luck!

    No.. Red is the fastest. Red = Fast!

    Firebirdfan. Just check around your city. Check in the paper and check lots. I'm sure you will find something that suits you and your finances.

    Navy Blue Metallic
    98 T/A w/a little mods...

    The answer will always be "the one you like the most!"

    But I think what he is looking for besides the generic answer like = my car is this:

    In reguards to Trans Ams:

    Firehawks - They are limited numbered and year editions (and even some are even rarer, depends on the YR & color)
    Between the WS6's & all Stock not much preformance wise difference, WS6's look so much cooler, but if you plan on modding the hell out of it get a stock one, pay alittle less and then mod on.


    For Firebird:
    Formulas (V8's), then regular (V6's) most ppl are not fans of the V6's here because it is a LS1 site. If you are a kid, meaning 18 and under still living with parents this is a good starter car for a young gearhead IMHO.

    Everyone is different, my first car was a mid 12 second 79 malibu. My buddys second car which he bought when he was still 16 was a high 10 second motor only foxbody with a chevy 402 stroker in it.
