    ***LS1.com Car of the Year 2007***

    Third_Shift_Studios "the Phoenix Risen"

    It's an honor to be an Ls1 sponsor and now to be Car of the Month makes it even more honorable. Consider this biography a thanks to the members who voted for me and also those who have supported my emblem design efforts through the years. It's a real thrill to place my mark on the ls1 world like this.

    My love for the Firebird TransAm started when I was 16 years old. I was working for my brother's landscaping company, mowing yards. I went to pack up the trailer and looked up to see a Torch Red 1998 ws.6 driving toward me. It was the first time I'd ever seen a new Firebird and my jaw bounced off the ground! The car was love at first sight so it became one of my life goals to achieve; I must own a Firebird.

    Once I graduated from art/design school in Pittsburgh, I moved to Cincinnati where I began my career for an advertising agency. At the time, I was driving an 01 cavalier but realized with a full time career, I could finally make my dream car a reality! So I bought my first TransAm. A beautiful Navy Blue Metallic 2000 ws.6. I owned the car for 3 years before it's untimely demise in March, 2007: an unfortunate accident rendered me emtpy and barren. I missed that car so much, I NEEDED another adrenaline boost–nothing around me mattered, my wedding, my job, a house, nothing would fill the void that losing "the Batmobile" created.

    It took months to find, I was searching "vehicles for sale" sections on here and 'tech as well as AutoTrader. I don't think an hour of any day passed by without me combing through sites to find new listings. I starting thinking about getting a Vette, but knew that insurance and monthly payments would be difficult especially with a wedding in the near future as well as a house to follow. Plus a Vette isn't a ws.6. The bold curves and prowling demeanor of a ws.6 can't be topped. I would consider Bullrun on Spike TV a major catalyst during my search. Mike Alsop's inspirational ws.6 beat one task after the next-I wanted my next TransAm to be that capable. So I made contact with Mike, and made a handshake-deal "you build me up a TransAm and i'll build you a website." A long time passed and Alsop's group just couldn't find a good build car to start from without exceeding the budget cap. It was aggrevating, to say the least. I just wanted something at this point of time....

    Out of the ashes of torment I found a new lust; B L A C K. Seductive...ominous...evil...nothing is more intimidating or classy than a jet black ws.6. I did, one last "AutoTrader search" before I called Alsop to agree on the car they found and there it was, just 20 miles from my house-a sleek, black on black ws.6. I called the dealer and said "is that car still there?" they said, "yes!" So I took a look at it; the car was worked on...lowered...tuned...LOUD! It was the solution to my craving. Dubbed "the Phoenix Risen," is my current 2000 triple black M6 ws.666 [a slick play on words, and a more fitting title as my ongoing suspension mods make it more "Sick and Twisted"]. Current modifications are:

    17" ZR1 Grandsports
    Eibach Pro Kit
    Suspension Techniques 35mm Solid Front Sway Bar
    J&M Double Adjustable Panhard Bar
    J&M 2-Point Tubular Subframe Connectors
    UMI Tubular Lower Control Arms
    UMI Bolt-in LCA Relocation Brackets
    SLP Lid w/ K&N filter
    Hedman Headers
    Custom Y-Pipe
    Corsa Pro Cat Back with polished tips
    Dyno Tuned
